Honda has announced it will be offering a limited edition Civic Type R Mugen 200 for the UK market.

The car takes its inspiration from Honda specialty tuner MUGEN Euro's Type R. The series will be limited to only 200 units.

The Civic Type R Mugen 200 comes with Honda's i-VTEC engine with 201 PS (148 kW / 198 bhp) and will feature MUGEN tuning parts such as front and rear bumpers and skirts, 19-inch alloy wheels, a limited slip differential, a MUGEN badge (at the back) and plaque with the edition number. The car comes dressed in Championship White contrasted with the gloss-black side mirrors.

The car will be a mostly domestic creation, with MUGEN being based in Northampton and the car being built at Honda's Swindon plant.

The Honda Civic Type R Mugen 200 goes on sale in April in the UK. Additional MUGEN tuning parts will also be available at specified UK Honda dealers.
