    Japan's 3rd super sport compact?

    http://www.mugen-power.com/concept/dominator/

    The Civic Dominator with 295.9 hp. More power to the ground than an evo, and a lot lighter. However, it is expected to remain FWD.

    Looks hot, but no thanks to 300 supercharged horses in a FWD application. Supercharger will dump all that torque at lower RPM's than a turbo, unless they've done some programming.

    Probably the same way the Impala SS handles 303 HP.

    I like the way the front end looks and the way the rear door handles are located to give a coupe look to it.

    They would sell a ton of them. I think the S2000 would be a much better application for that supercharger.

    Actually I bet it is much harder to handle since there is less weigh over thinner tires. Basically it would be a pain in the but to get it going in a straight line much less in a tight high speed turn.

    If they put that front on the NA one, I think we might see a few more sales.
