It's shaping up to be a very interesting year for Japan's Super GT series. In addition to the GT300 class Toyota Prius and Subaru BRZ cars that have already been shown, Honda will also be jumping into the fray with a new CR-Z GT300 entry. Team Mugen is planning to debut the car by the middle of the 2012 season, and word has it the GT300 CR-Z will be running a racing type hybrid powertrain.
We'll certainly be interested to see how this plays out.
Spotted over on Jon Sibal's blog
Maybe technologies from this cr-z will make its way over to the consumer cr-z. I cant wait to see some more aftermarket parts.
If only some of this performance would trickle down to the consumer. Honda could use an injection of driving passion as it's now a shadow of its former self. The production CR-Z remains a colossal missed opportunity.
SICK! You should post up the sweet ass too! A little over the top but that's the point of the GT300!

this will be very interesting. that rendering looks menacing. the real car will turn out looking great! a 300hp crz is going to be killing that track!
