Mugen, Honda’s little-brother modification company for Honda products started by a Honda family member, has a long history of “classic” JDM design modifications. For Tokyo Auto Salon 2017, Mugen threw all of that right out the window for its S660, which looks like it belongs cruising the Death Star or Imperial Coruscant.
OK. I know in the past we have joked on several occasions about this or that concept car being along the lines of “Lord Vader, Your Vehicle Is Ready” and it isn’t even the first StormTrooper reference, but if I was going to make a car design based on on the StormTrooper helmet, especially that of the First Order, well, damn, Mugen’s S660 comes pretty close.
i have to say, that is actually one of the closer “stromtrooper” type cars i’ve seen… puts those nissan “rogue” one editions to shame, really.
wonder if they did anything with the engine or is it purely cosmetic? because i know those japanese “kei” cars are limited to something like 63 horsepower if i remember right — which would never fly here in the states… i can just imagine all the laughs and snickers when guys around here saw that on the window sticker.
