I’m pretty impressed by the elegant not too loud bodykit that Mugen has put on the Honda Fit. It looks really great in it’s orange colour too, but what really makes the Mugen Fit Spec D special compared to the other kitted up Honda Fits (Honda Jazz in our markets) out there?
Yup, it’s supercharged. Mugen has already made one pocket rocket Honda Fit previously with their Mugen Fit Dynamite powered by the same Honda K20A engine in it’s Civic Type R and Integras.
This Mugen Fit Spec D runs the same L15A SOHC 1.5 litre engine in the original Honda Fit, but it is equipped with a supercharger just like the Civic Dominator. This results in a nice 145 horsepower harnessed by a 5-speed manual gearbox on a small city car.
The gauges are also new, with the center dial being replaced with a combination of a boost gauge and a digital speedometer. I’m really not sure why one would need such a huge boost gauge. IMHO they should have put the RPM gauge in the middle and the boost gauge on the left.
