SPOON CR-Z
Just as Honda is shifting its sports car line-up from petrol engine to hybrid cars, SPOON SPORTS has been struggling to find a way to tune hybrid cars. SPOON CR-Z is their first tuned hybrid car. Through development, they had found lots of blackboxes in the components related to electric motors, making hybrid car tuning a more difficult task compared to traditional petrol engine cars. So first they have thought of taking off the electric motor and swap the engine to K20, but the conclusion was to leave the electric motor as it is. It is obvious there will be more hybrid cars coming from Honda in the future, and it was time Spoon needed to face it and find a way to deal with it. Development is still going on, but in one of the latest HotVersion videos, SPOON CR-Z succeeded to beat stock condition Civic TypeR Euro (FN2) driven by Keiichi Tsuchiya. Their tuning method was simple - besides the electric motor, they had done everything they always did with petrol engine cars. Take unnecessary things off from car and make it light, tune intake/Exhaust parts, and equip with ground-hugging suspension system.
