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

    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.

    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.

    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
