Description for Honda CRX 1991

Mugen Motorsports(M-TEC Co., Ltd) (無限) is aJapanesecompany formed in 1973 byHirotoshi Honda, the son ofHonda Motor CompanyfounderSoichiro Honda, and Masao Kimura. Mugen, meaning "Without Limit", "Unlimited" or "Vast", (hence the commonly placed word "Power" after, denoting "Unlimited Power") is an engine tuner and parts manufacturer that manufactures OEM parts such as body kits and sports exhausts forHonda Motor Company.The company has a strong racing heritage, as Hirotoshi Honda began building his own racing car in a workshop at his father's house, shortly before he graduated fromNihon Universityin 1965. Masao Kimura is a veteran racer with more than 50 victories in Hondasports carsand single-seaters and worked for Honda R&D and then Honda Racing Service before helping Hirotoshi Honda establish Mugen.

The company specializes in tuningHonda engines. Beginning with the 1200ccHonda Civicengine, it went on to develop, and now designs and builds, both two-stroke and four-stroke engines, manufacturing many of the major components itself.

Mugen ultimately intends to build its own road cars and the first step towards this was the creation of bodykits for theHonda Ballade CR-Xin 1984. Since then, the company has produced a number of body kits for Honda machinery, culminating with the MugenNSXprototype in 1992.[1]

The partnership between Honda and Mugen began with the CRX. It was an inevitable collaboration given that Mugen was formed by Hirotoshi Honda – the son of Honda founder Soichiro Honda – and veteran racer Masao Kimura. The CRX, or CR-X as it is called in Japan, carried an aggressive effort to establish Mugen in the United States. At the time, any Honda dealer could order and sell Mugen parts, and a select few became Mugen Performance Centers. The program only lasted three years, but yielded a handful of uprated Mugen CRXs and many street-tuned Hondas. Dressed in the Mugen body kit, the CRX’s short, stout lines are tastefully enhanced without complicating them. A trademark feature of the Mugen CRX is the twin-pipe muffler or “Silencer Set.” With nearly 120 horsepower, a limited slip differential, and weighing in at a mere 1,800 pounds, the Mugen CRX is a thrill to drive and inspired a new generation of Honda tuners. Mugen has gone on to contribute to Honda’s racing success in Formula One and sports car racing, but it all started here with the CRX.
