    Hi all,

    Didn't see anywhere else but Mugen posted some new pictures, which I think might actually answer the mystery bumper people assumed was for the 2019-2020 around the nurburgring.

    The cars are pretty outrageous looking but remember the full Mugen DC2R was pretty extreme too. (but the intake, twin loop, suspension and other parts were great) Looks like some cooling changes as well as perhaps some performance options, hopefully more info will be published after the coming Japanese Auto Shows.

    Some info from from Autoblog:






    MUGEN CIVIC TYPE R Prototype

    Really don't like the wheels.. but otherwise, hopefully its functional.

    change the wheels on the white one and that is miles ahead of the old design. Odd they left the rear fake vents alone though..

    X2 old one was so bad I thought it was a joke. Still not worth the money to me

    Rear spoiler is ugly but I like that rear lip. I like the white front lip and side skirts too. And whatever those white strips covering half of the front vents is.

    Mirrors suck and the scoop sucks.

    Wheels definitely suck - although I'm curious what size they are. I'd look into it if they're stock offset 19's or 18's, but they look to be 20's.

    I don't like what they've done with the exhaust and that gray stuff around the exhaust. They've made it smaller?

    On a closer look from some new photos by HondaPro Jason, all these Mugen bodykit lips are not direct replacement and instead it just stuck over the exiting carbon look factory lips :doh:

    Spoiler, tail lights, and front vent pieces are the only things I'm interested in cosmetically. But I'm most likely in the minority in appreciating their out-there craziness with some of the design.

    Too bad I'm moving more toward a Spoon build. :hmm:

    That looks chintzy as fuck, like some ricer trying to imitate a Mugen. I thought those initial pics were poorly photoshopped and after seeing this, I'm 100% right.

    Not interested after seeing this. Phew, such poorly fitting garbage!

    Those tail lights look to be full LED. I wonder if those will be available?

    Pretty generic I will agree... tail lights are ok but the rest is junk

    The front and side aero look fine, the rear is ugly as hell and doesn't even match the rest of the pieces. I wanna see some interior shots and more details on the performance bits.

    Those are the pics I was referencing, and the camo car does not have the Mugen parts.
