Honda CRZ

2010 Honda CRZ Type R Concept Car

In stock form, the 2010 Honda CRZ will produce 102 horsepower from a 1.5-liter four-cylinder mated to an electric motor good for an additional 20 horsepower. It is rumored that with the help of Mugen, the much anticipated 2010 Honda CRZ Type R will produce 150 horsepower from the 1.5-liter four cylinder and a stronger electric motor will add an additional 50 horsepower for a total of 200 horses. Honda also plans to reconfigure the suspension, upgrade the brake calipers and make some body modifications to the exterior. Another cool feature the 2010 Honda CRZ Type R will have is the “Sport Plus” mode which is said will modify the steering, the throttle response, the start-stop system and the electric motor assist.

Car News, Scion FR-S

2011 Scion FR-S Concept Car

The AE86 Corolla was well known for its lightweight chassis and superb balance without having a lot of power under the hood. With this philosophy in mind, Scion created the radical new 2011 Scion FR-S which is supposed to be Scion’s homage to the infamous AE86 Corolla. The 2011 Scion FR-S, which stands for Front-engine, Rear-wheel-drive Sport, will house a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter flat-four Boxer engine which can be paired with either a six-speed automatic with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters or six-speed manual transmission. The 2011 Scion FR-S will feature Toyota’s DS-4 injection system, which uses both direct and port injection. The use of both direct and port injection results in increased horsepower and torque throughout the entire power-band without sacrificing gas mileage. The FR-S’ design is inspired by the legendary Toyota 2000GT and design hues of the Lexus LF-A can be seen in the angular shapes that blend with smooth sleek curves. We can’t wait to see the production model in 2012.

Honda CRZ

Mugen Honda CRZ Prototype

Sketches have been released by Mugen Euro featuring a one-off, Honda CRZ prototype. The Mugen Euro Honda CRZ prototype will debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July 2011. The Mugen Honda CRZ will be powered by a 1.5 liter i-VTEC gasoline engine and Mugen will use the Honda’s IMA system to boost power and torque. The Mugen Honda CRZ will be fitted with larger brakes, a stiffer suspension and features that will improve chassis dynamics. Mugen believes that despite having more power, their Honda CRZ prototype might actually offer increased fuel economy as well as reduced CO2 emissions. Unfortunately, Honda’s factory tuner says that there are no plans of selling their Honda CR-Z prototype as this time. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
