Video: PH Drives The Mugen Civic Type R


A trip to Japan isn't necessarily a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but the chance to go out and drive a Mugen-tuned Honda Civic Type R prototype - before anybody else in the world- is.

So when PH got the call from Honda we - rather obviously - said yes please, trying not to sound too over-excited. Honda also asked us if we would like to bring a PHer along - another no-brainer.

Said lucky PHer was competition winner Nick Ashby, who flew out with Riggers to Tokyo a couple of weeks ago. You can read our track test of the Mugen Civic Type R here, but this video is the story of Nick's Japanese odyssey.
