Mugen Honda CR-Z GT Revealed With Twin-Turbo V6


Earlier this year, Honda announced it would enter a CR-Z race car to compete in Japan’s Super GT Series, and now the hybrid is set to make its race debut at the upcoming Round 4 Sugo GT on July 28-29, 2012.

The Japanese automaker announced its technical support to Team Mugen, operated by M-TEC, by supplying a 2.8-liter V6 twin-turbo engine along with the racing hybrid system developed exclusively for the race car. The car recently went through its testing paces at the Twin Ring Motegi race track with Hideki Mutoh behind the wheel.

When the CR-Z makes its race debut, Formula Nippon driver Daisuke Nakajima will be the one behind the wheel and we look forward to seeing how it performs on the track.
