SPOON CR-Z - under the hood
Just as Honda is shifting its sports car line-up from petrol engine to hybrid cars, SPOON 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.

CR-Z my first ride
My first test drive on Honda CR-Z.
Because the ride was so comfortable, and with 120ps engine, it's not a sports car... But I totally agree this is a "SPORTY" car, or more than that. It's fun just riding it all around, even on low speed. I liked it a lot!

complete Mugen CR-Z (無限CR-Z)
This is the coolest Mugen aero dynamics kit I've ever seen!
I have drove 3 stock CR-Zs so far, and honestly saying, CR-Z doesn't have the horse power as much as we all expected. It is still a 1.5L engine + alpha. But what this car brings is a fun-to-drive feeling, and one of the coolest styling of Honda's recent products. And this time, Mugen has done a really great job in brushing up the CR-Z without spoiling its original image.

Honda CR-Z Hybrid first review - What Car?
Read the What Car? Honda CR-Z review http://bit.ly/A1PSWf
The Honda CR-Z looks stunning inside and out, it's fun to drive, and every version is well equipped. The hybrid system works smoothly, gives good performance and keeps running costs low.
There's a lot of road noise at high speed and the rear seats are useless. CO2 emissions aren't as low as in some diesel-engined rivals.

2011 Mugen Honda CR-Z
A mainstream hybrid that's fun to drive. That's a novel concept, to be sure, and one targeted by Honda in the marching papers of its recent CR-Z coupe, which is offered with a sporty six-speed manual gearbox and is supposed to be the spiritual successor to the much-loved CRX hatchback from the 1980s.
We've yet to drive the CR-Z and we're already questioning if the 122 horsepower and 128 pound-feet of torque on tap from its 1.5-liter VTEC four-cylinder with Integrated Motor Assist will be enough to qualify the car as sporty.
According to Motor Trend, though, Honda has a much sportier model waiting in the wings that would use either a V6 or a large 2.5 liter four mated up with the familiar IMA hybrid system. Citing rumors from Japan, MT says the future car will be roughly the size of the Accord coupe.
In related news, that aforementioned V6 hybrid powertrain is reportedly slated for both minivans and SUVs for the American market. Further, Honda is currently working on an extended-range electric system similar to the one featured in the 2011 Chevrolet Volt except using a capacitor-based energy storage system. If true, we can expect to see that system featured in a future Accord.
Supercharged Honda CR-Z MUGEN in action
Watch the prototype Honda CR-Z MUGEN, developed in conjunction with MUGEN Euro, make its first appearance on the road.
Performance figures already look promising for this supercharged Honda CR-Z, as early tests with a prototype car based on a standard CR-Z and a mid-tune engine giving 0-60mph times around that of the Civic Type R.
2011 NAIAS Honda CRZ Hybrid Coupe Type R
Honda brought out its new CRZ Hybrid Coupe for the Autoshow this year. The exterior styling really stands out with its widebody front bumper, hood scoop, carbon fiber spoiler, rear diffuser, and its center placed dual Exhaust. The Dunlop Performance tires and 19in wheels also compliment the look they're going for. Under the hood you'll find a 1.5L turbocharged Inline 4 I-VTEC engine. The sign next to the car said it had an "estimated" output of 175hp and 155 ft lbs of torque although I suspect its lower. What do you guys think of the new model?
