"Honda enthusiasts have long been asking for factory-installed MUGEN performance products similar to what the company offers in Japan," said John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda.

American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced yesterday that the 2008 Civic MUGEN Si Sedan will enter the market in mid-October. The 200 hp factory-prepared MUGEN model, of which Honda revealed a prototype at SEMA in 2006, comes with a sport-tuned exhaust system, an aerodynamic body kit, high-performance suspension and forged aluminum wheels. "Honda enthusiasts have long been asking for factory-installed MUGEN performance products similar to what the company offers in Japan," said John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda. "We're enthusiasts, too, and the ultra-premium Civic MUGEN Si Sedan offers exclusive style and elevated handling performance with legendary Honda refinement." The MUGEN Si will be a limited-production vehicle with only 1,000 units produced for the 2008 model year, retailing for less than $30,000. What are you waiting for!?
