2013 Honda CR-Z RZ Mugen gets Supercharged
Up front, the CR-Z Mugen RZ makes use of 11.8-inch rotors pressed by reinforced calipers, sterner pads and braided stainless lines. Of course, this wouldn't be a Mugen product without a new body kit, and the company's designers served up a reworked front fascia, adjustable front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser and, of course, a wing. Inside, the reworked CR-Z uses special blue and black seats, a new steering wheel and shift knob.
Mugen will start to sell 300 completed CR-Zs on November 26, in Japan only, sadly. Take a look at the full press release below for more information.

Also, the way the yen is right now, Honda is losing money on cars built in Japan and sold in the US. This is why they're trying to move Fit production to North America, IIRC.

Now that the official info is out on the RZ and it has some pretty awesome upgrades, I wonder what bag of tricks they've got sitting in the RR.
Also, you think we'd be able to swap those seats in and not have to worry about the sensors going nuts?
