We’re still in awe over the HSV-010 and now there’s even more testosterone pumping video of Honda’s new race car on track at Suzuka. Reportedly powered by a tiny 3.4-liter V8 engine, we can only assume it revs to typically Honda heights to achieve all 500-hp. It certainly sounds like a screamer and we’d argue has an even more Formula One-inspired sound than the Lexus LFA. After all, Honda is known for its engines.

Little else is known about the car other than it will be a race only model and will run in Japan’s Super GT series, with the first race of the season on May 20-21.

We can only hope Honda will bring a street version of this car to market.

    Well, it definitely sounds like a screamer...but a 3.4L pushing 500hp will probably have a stroke 1/4 compared to the bore of the engine and rev beyond 12krpm to achieve that power (1/2 joke). In essence, a Formula One engine that doubtfully will find never itself in a street version of the car.

      You're right. It's most likely the exact same engine Honda developed for its ALMS Acura race cars.
