Limited Edition 2008 Mugen Honda Civic Si paralyzed in dealer's open lot

I posted earlier that Honda Civic topped the list as the most stolen car---which is not good news at all. Today’s news is a little bit different. The car has been robbed of its parts, rendering it to be unavailable for interested buyers. What’s worse though, limited edition Mugen Honda Civics are not always easy to get. So when this Honda dealer saw what happened to one of their exclusives, they learned a very valuable lesson: do not leave a precious Civic out in an open lot.

There are only 1,000 units of the 2008 Mugen Civic Si that reached stateside. With the report from Autoblog though, it looks like we are short of one. A very eager thief just couldn’t wait to get his hands on this baby, which was why he “smashed a window, took the wheels, seats, badges, and shift knob among other miscellaneous items” according to Autoblog. He will probably sell it to his gang of dreamers who don’t have the chance to experience the power of this Honda. It was such a disturbing sight, seeing this blue Civic Mugen standing on its front rotors and two jackstands. What will make of this poor baby now? Those nasty “businessmen” really need to learn their lesson immediately. In the meantime, for all of you who are lucky enough to drive this Mugen Si, you now know that the hounds are out to get you. Be careful, and avoid parking in dimly-lit open lots. As for the thieves, we all hope that you’ll get run over by a bulldozer. (Source: Autoblog)
