2008 Honda Civic Mugen SI Sedan

Featuring the new Honda Civic Sedan, as sporty and classy as ever, this model is set to be released in mid October. Honda have always been redefining the family sedan formula, improving in much more to give you better performance and driving experience in a factory sedan car. The idea is simple yet elegant, combining the power and fun you get from a sports car and the luxury you get from a saloon.

This one features extended body panels, a racing spoiler, lowered bumpers and side skirts. Plus A sport exhaust system to give you the pleasurable sporty sound and aluminium forged alloy wheels. This extraordinary venture will cost some less than $30,000.

Engine and Performance:

This car features the i-VTEC DOHC 2 litre 4-cylinder engine, more or less the same engine you get in a Honda S2000, which is good because S2000's engine has been given the award for having the best engine 2 years in a row. A 6 speed manual gear box supports the amazing engine capabilities. The suspension of the car has been race track tuned, the car is 0.6 inches lower than the Si, stiffer dumpers and shock absorbers give a firmer drive and better grip. The engine boosts out 197 hp at 7,800 rpm and a maximum torque of 139 Nm at 6,100 rpm.

The full-vehicle aero-package adds a front spoiler with a sports grille, side spoilers, a rear bumper diffuser and a rear wing. The car's sport exhaust system reduces back pressure from the catalytic converter back. Lightweight 16.98-pound 18x7.5-inch forged aluminum wheels (27 percent lighter than the stock 17x7 alloy wheel) and high-grip BFGoodrich® g-Force KDW 215/40ZR18 summer tires help to create MUGEN's unique, rewarding and well-balanced handling performance character.

This car has factory fitted Mugen performance products for the American customers, after great appreciation in Japan.John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda said, "We're enthusiasts, too, and the ultra-premium Civic MUGEN Si Sedan offers exclusive style and elevated handling performance with legendary Honda refinement."

This car would be exclusively available in Fiji Blue Pearl color. The car will feature a full factory warranty. Only a handful of these cars will be built per annum, a 1000 a year, so this car will remain fairly exclusive.
