Honda showcased the Mugen edition of its midsize sedan, the CIty, in Philippines last week. The special edition features a new front sports grille with the Mugen logo instead of the Honda's, front under spoiler, side spoiler, and rear under spoiler among other aerodynamic parts, and 17-inch eight-spoke aluminium wheels.  

The prototype's Taffeta White colour is complemented by the traditional Mugen tri-colour scheme in red, gold and black along the left C-pillar, the right A-pillar, and across the top of the front windshield. 

Honda had launched the previous edition of this car in Philippines last year in very limited numbers (only 20 units were made available). The car produced a measly (by Mugen standards) 120 horses so it can be inferred that it was just a just a cosmetically enhanced version.   

The latest edition of the car will be launched in Philippines in the third quarter of this year and Honda says that the car will get engine and suspension upgrades too by that time. Mugen is to Honda what AMG and M are to Mercedes-Benz and BMW, respectively. Honda had first introduced factory-installed Mugen accessories in the Philippines car market in 2011 and Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) has since been the number one Mugen products distributor outside of Japan.  

Honda also announced that after the launch in Philippines later this year the car would be available in other countries too. Though it is highly unlikely that this car will come to India, but if it does then Honda car fans in India will be overjoyed at the prospect of owning a Mugen Honda, even if the prefix does not guarantee an addition of ponies under the hood.
