2011 Type R 2.2

Techies at the Northampton-based MUGEN Euro have taken that myth-inspiring K20 2.0-litre motor and increased cylinder bore and stroke to create a 2156cc engine which is now fitted in what they call Civic Type 2.2. Power has gone up from 237bhp to 256bhp and torque figures peak at 240Nm at 6,000rpm. The K20 2.0-litre petrol engine is amongst the greatest naturally aspirated engine and was an obvious choice for many a motorsport competitor. It was homologated as an FIA Group N race series engine by MUGEN.2011 Honda Civic Type R MUGEN 2.2 It powered both the Japan-only Honda Civic MUGEN RR saloon and the 20-limited UK only Honda Civic Type R MUGEN, which debuted in 2010. Environmental concerns have led to ceasing production of the engine in Japan. What Mugen have done is made the best motor better and bolted on a plethora of motorsport-derived components that include a sports suspension, upgraded brakes and an aero-improve bodykit – the MUGEN 2.2 is the epitome of the Honda Civic Type R philosophy.2011 Honda Civic Type R MUGEN 2.2
