The phenomenal Civic Mugen RR was so hotly anticipated that all 300 sold within 10 minutes of their September 2007 release in the Japanese domestic market.
Enthusiasts and collectors seeking a Mugen Civic can more easily obtain a highly respected Civic Mugen Si in the US market. But it pales in comparison to the Civic Mugen RR, which can periodically be imported from secondhand car auctions and dealers in Japan with assistance from specialists like Japan Car Direct.
Mugen is to Honda what Alpina is to BMW. When Mugen engineers were given free reign to boost the performance of an already hardcore JDM Honda Civic Type R (FD2), they trimmed off 10.4 kilos, added 15 PS of horsepower and significantly improved the handling and aerodynamics. Not only did this shave off two seconds from the Tsukuba Circuit lap time, but it made the driving experience much more exhilarating.
Exclusivity is the Civic Mugen RR’s middle name. Production was limited to 300 units and Mugen prevents the creation of counterfeits by only selling replacement parts to the 300 registered owners. This helps make the Civic Mugen RR a very sound investment and partially explains why some were already sold at nearly twice their original price.
The Civic Mugen RR is powered by a heavily modified version of Honda’s 2.0-liter K20A DOHC i-VTEC inline four engine, which was already extremely responsive. To bring out the engine’s full potential and deliver extremely sharp throttle response to the driver’s smallest input — with power coming on strong at lower rpm — Mugen replaced the camshafts, valve springs, exhaust manifold and intake manifold cover with higher performance, lighter weight components. It also carefully tweaked ECU mapping and significantly improved intake and exhaust performance by adding a ram air intake from the front grille, larger intake box, higher flowing catalytic converter, straight silencer and dual exhaust pipes. The impressive result is 240 PS (180 kW; 243 hp) at 8000 rpm and 218 N·m (161 lb-ft) torque at 7000 rpm in an extremely lightweight car.
Many components both inside and out are fully or partially constructed of lightweight carbon fiber. This includes the front seats, engine cover, front bumper and rear wing. The hood is lightweight aluminum and other parts like the side skirts and rear under spoiler that were added to improve aerodynamics are also lightweight.
Handling is sharper with more predictable, higher precision steering, more solid stability, a firmer ride and fantastic grip that keeps you in control when pushing it around corners. In fact, the ability to enter corners at higher speeds is this model’s main advantage over the stock Civic Type R. Mugen’s suspension features stiffer springs and five-way adjustable dampers that can be manually adjusted with a special tool kept in the tool box beneath the trunk room floor. Wider 18-inch Mugen 7-spoke aluminum wheels are fitted with sticky Bridgestone Potenza RE070 225/40R18 tires and the stock Civic Type-R Brembo calipers feature lightweight slotted Mugen rotors for controlled, predictable deceleration that is truly top class. Carbon air ducts help keep the front brakes cool even during spirited driving.
A supremely sporty red and black interior redesigned by Mugen further enhances the driving experience. Its sporty, minimalist Mugen instrument panel has a purpose-driven design with large central tachometer. There’s a small red digital speedometer above it and other gauges (water temperature, oil temperature and oil pressure) are placed off to the side above the audio system.
Special-edition carbon reclining Recaro SP-X seats with body-hugging contours practically urge you to press the pedal and test their support around corners. The sporty aluminum pedals provide a great pedal feel and instant response whether accelerating or decelerating. A sporty short-stroke shifter delivers somewhat light-but-sure shifting of the stock 6-speed manual transmission, which is supported by the stock helical limited slip differential from the Civic Type R FD2.
This 2007 Civic Mugen RR sourced by Japan Car Direct and on its way to the UK is in fantastic condition with only 26,980km on the odometer. From vibrant Milano Red finish to serious rear spoiler and twin chrome pipes, every detail has been well cared for.

A few months ago I set out on my goal of importing a vehicle from Japan through an auction. After tons and TONs of research and countless emails, I decided to use Japan Car Direct as my exporter in Japan. From the beginning of my interactions with JCD, I was thoroughly impressed. My contact, Yoshi, was amazing...definitely a huge asset to the JCD team. He answered all of my questions promptly, translated dozens of auction sheets for me, and advised me of what to watch out for when looking for a vehicle. He was beyond helpful! I picked up my Kei truck at the port in Newport News a few weeks ago and couldn't be more pleased. Since then, the truck has made it to its final home in Charlottesville, VA on my farm. Yoshi and the other guys at JCD are now my go to team for more of these soon. Thanks again JCD and keep doing what you guys do! You all are the real deal.

Since a kid the FD RX7 has always been a dream car but i didn't pursue it till i graduated high school but the prices just for the shell over here in california was over 15k!! I kept looking around until I decided i would just import one. I found JCD while looking for the top 5 importers you could trust and they stood out more than all the other ones, and for a couple months of more research on their page until I ultimately decided I would go through them. Although this was my first time getting a car from Japan and having an endless amount questions spanning a couple hundred emails until it would freeze up and i had to make a new email thread .. Mathew always answered every question and helped me though every step. I didn't have all the funds in the beginning but they were very patient with it until i was fully ready, then after a month of having Matt give his thought on some of the FDs i was looking at we finally won the auction for a 94 Efini type R Fd3s. As we picked it up from Long Beach till the drive home I couldn't believe that it was here and soo much better just looking at the picture but i defiantly would recommend JCD to anyone looking to import their dream car too and and want to thank matt and the whole team with getting me my RX7.
