The Honda NSX Super GT race car has finally been revealed at Suzuka Raceway, as the teams begin testing their vehicles for the 2014 season.
The Japanese automaker has already confirmed that it’ll be replacing its HSV-010 GT race car with the NSX in the GT500 class for the 2014 Japanese Super GT Series. As we know, starting with the 2014 season, competitors in the GT500 class and all cars racing in DTM will use common technical regulations.
While the road car is expected to use a V6 hybrid setup and the HSV-010 GT was powered by a 3.4-liter V8 engine, the new car is powered by a mid-engine 2.0-liter direct-injection turbocharged 4-cylinder, mated to a hybrid system.

One thing to note however is that the HSV-010 GT was a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive race car and Honda has expressed a desire to run a mid-engine setup for its NSX. The race car is expected to make around 500 horsepower, similar to the rest of the GT500 field.
