Here is a modified old Honda Civic with Mugen RR body kit, updated exterior and interior and an air-suspension that allows ride-height adjustment
Saintgits College of Engineering, Kottayam, is a premier Institute for higher education in Kerala. The college serves as the Research Centre of APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University. It also serves as the host for an annual Auto Show!
The Association of Royal Mechanical Students of Saintgits College of Engineering is responsible for organising Mechnius, an Annual Tech-Fest, which includes different events like quiz competitions, presentations, and even mechanical assembly and fabrication contests. The highlight of the fest though, is the Auto-Show. Auto enthusiasts from all over the country bring in their prized rides to be displayed at the event.
In this video by YouTube channel “nitro _ street”, you can check out a beautiful, bright green Honda Civic wearing Mugen RR body kit. The car is built by 360 Motoring, and features air-suspension from N1 Concepts.
As seen in the video, the Civic features some heavy modifications to both the interior and exterior. Let’s go through those briefly. The front-end of the car features a red Honda logo, which is the official logo for Honda Mugen cars. The headlights get projector beams with corona rings, and a LED lining underneath them. There is also a blacked-out lip-spoiler. The rear-end of the car gets LED taillights with custom design, a large spoiler wing, a larger exhaust pipe, a rear splitter (aesthetic only), and a tiny “360 motoring” sticker.
The side profile is the most distinct, with custom alloy wheels, yellow disk-brake callipers, and large side-skirts. Doesn’t seem enough? Well, the front doors open upwards, like Lamborghini’s Scissor doors! Now that is a proper showstopper! It also features custom air-suspension, which help raise or lower the ground clearance of this green beast, which is quite helpful when driving around on bad roads.
As for the interiors, the colour theme can be best described as flashy. The car has an overabundance of purple, with green detailing matching the exterior. It could easily be cast as the next “Joker mobile”, if Hollywood ever needed one! Jokes aside, there are three additional dials on the A-pillar on the passenger side, but it is not evident from the video if they are functional.
First launched in 2006, the Honda Civic was an extremely popular car in India. Powertrain options included a 1.8-litre inline-four petrol engine and a 1.3-litre inline-four petrol/electric hybrid. The former could be had with either a 5-speed manual or a torque-converter automatic gearbox, while the latter was offered with only a CVT gearbox option.
Even though the Civic was a global icon, Honda was sceptical about introducing the performance versions of the car in India. As such, we never got the Civic Si and Civic Type-R, Civic Mugen, or the lighter, nimbler, and more fun to drive Civic hatchback. Also, the lack of a diesel engine had also started to hurt the brand, as Indian consumers started preferring oil-burners. The car continued unchanged since its launch for 6 years, until the production was finally ended in 2012.
