Tuning Honda Civic in Dodge Challenger style

The Japanese firm Mitsuoka, renowned for its automotive customizations, recently unveiled its latest project. This unique vehicle, based on the 11th generation Honda Civic hatchback, is named Mitsuoka M55. It is perhaps the boldest project in the company's history, styled after the Dodge Challenger and dedicated to Mitsuoka's 55th anniversary. The car impresses with its appearance, reminiscent of muscle cars from the 70s.

The concept car combines elements of the Honda Civic, retaining the original shape of the roof, windows, doors, and glass. However, it also features distinct American attributes: enlarged front and rear overhangs, sporty alloy wheels with white lettering on the tires.

The front of the car fully replicates the Challenger style: four round headlights, a rectangular grille, and a small splitter. The rear is adorned with a special gridded window, custom taillights, a modified rear bumper, and a hood with a spoiler.

The interior predominantly reflects the design of the donor vehicle, but with the addition of blue leather upholstery in a retro style and the Mitsuoka emblem on the steering wheel. It features a 1.5-liter turbocharged Honda engine with 180 horsepower and 240 Nm of torque, paired with a 6-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive system.
