This car, this piece of work truly deserves in own thread. I'd buy this in a heartbeat over any V8 for that matter. :bowdown:

Mugen Legend Max

This is a "combination of racing technology and tuning philosophy." A Mugen Le Mans V8 engine fitted to a further evolved Mugen Legend M1 equipment package. Debuting in the 2002 ALMS (American Le Mans Series), this 4 liter V8 engine has seen action every year since then. In 2004, it was used in the JGTC Series by the VEMAC RD408R GT500 class racing machine.

Type - V8 Naturally Aspirated
Displacement - 4000cc
Power - 500bhp+ @ 9500 RPMs
Torque - 323lb/ft @ 7500 RPMs
Configuration - DOHC 32V
Drivetrain - Front Engine, Rear Wheel Drive
Transmission - 6 Speed Manual

There is a snorkel box that goes over the top to direct air into the ITBs.

Mugen is Honda's motorsports arm on a higher level compared to AMG/M/STi/Nismo/RalliArt etc. All Honda F1, F3, GT500, GT300 engines and chassis development are strictly Mugen. Talk about high level exposure and technical expertise, Mugen is not easily matched.

Mugen needs to make more of a presence in Acura cars over here...

I guess I can keep dreaming :(
