Okay so fair enough it's not a hot hatch, it's a compact saloon car. But it's got a stonking engine and cracking chassis, and aside from the little cargo area tacked on the back it's got all the hot hatch ingredients in massive doses. Only 300 examples of the car were produced, all for the Japanese domestic market in 2007. However a very limited number have seeped out as grey imports to various other countries.

Mugen have made a name for themselves as the definitive tuning company for Honda vehicles - a fact which was highlighted by the fact all 300 Civic Mugen RR's were bought within 10 minutes of going on sale. The car has been described as one of the best FWD cars of all time by many motoring journalists. It's been praised not only for its impressive performance numbers thanks to the 240 horsepower, 2.0 litre 4 cylinder engine and crisp 6 speed gearbox. But also for its remarkable chassis which offers impeccable handling, and its upgraded braking system which sees the addition of grooved brake discs and braided hoses to the already outstanding Brembo setup.

Weight reduction was a key design requirement for the car and because of this the vehicle features numerous special items like carbon fiber bumpers, an aluminium bonnet, carbon fiber rear spoiler, lightweight alloy wheels, and carbon fiber Recaro sports seats.
