Japanese tuning houses Mugen and Modulo unveil their vision of Civic Type R

Tuners give new twist on Civic Type R at Tokyo Auto Salon

Amongst the concepts and special editions at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2016, tuners have turned their attention to the new Civic Type R to give their unique twist on the race car for the road.

The event is the world’s largest customised automobile show, with thousands attending to see radical versions of some of the best-selling cars in Japan and globally.

Mugen Civic Type R concept

Famous for making many adaptations of best-selling Honda models, tuning house Mugen has taken the new Civic Type R (recently launched for sale in Japan) and added even more aggressive body styling to the package.

The concept adds a revised front bumper with contrasting black parts around the lip and wheel arches. The black theme is continued through the rest of the car, with side and rear skirts giving an aggressive on road stance. The standard rear spoiler is replaced by a lighter, race car inspired design, again finished in black.

Modulo Civic Type R

Modulo have taken the standard Type R design, and added a revised body kit, with flared side skirts. The standard fuel filler cap has been replaced with one of a different design, while red body colour accents are used on the wing mirror covers and the sides of the rear spoiler.

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R

The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.
