When you hear it for the first time you can easily think it's crazy. The Honda CR-Z Mugen hybrid was compared with the fastest, most agile production car there is, the Ariel Atom. We are not talking about the traditional Ariel Atom, but a slightly modified version. Mugen is the developer also.
The Ariel Atom has a 2.0-liter supercharged engine that can produce up to 270 bhp. It's really not that much, but when you know the Atom is very, very light, you can say this is a competition.
And now let's stop at the Honda CR-Z Mugen for a sec. This model has a 1.5-liter petrol engine and to top it all, it has an electric motor as well. The two work together and this way they can produce 200 PS and 181 lb. ft. of torque.
Honda is very proud of its speed and declared that the CR-Z model can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph like the Civic Type R.
