How many sporty CR-Zs have they done? And they've all been slow. Sure, it looks the part, but that's about it.

For a tuner car, I think it looks great! It's clean and even looks purpose-built, not too flashy. Mugen always do pretty nice work.
But sadly, it's still a hybrid.

I doubt the supercharged euro one is what you'd call slow. This on the other hand doesn't seem to have any performance upgrades at all, except for some carbonfibre.

Bigger brakes at least...
They just basically serve to point out where the basic CR-Z is lacking....

Looks ok, do i prefer it over the supercharged one? I prefer the look but that's it.

Can someone just rip out the hybrid system, stick a S2000 engine in there and just call it a CR-Z Si? I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

Seriously? Because downforce only helps in a straight line right?

yep, you wanna keep the rear of a FWD car down when racing ... even if "only" 200hp

BUT ... this is a Mugen "special" for the Japanese market so is definately there for the looks
