Back in February some sketches were released of a wild CR-Z Super GT car that Mugen would be entering in the GT300 class this year. Today that car has officially become a reality! This wild take on Honda’s eco-sports car will take part in its first race at the end of the month in Sugo. The little electrically assisted 4-cylinder engine has given way to something a little more serious, a 2.8L twin-turbo V6 boosted by Honda’s racing hybrid system developed especially for this car. Power will be limited to 300 HP as GT300 class regulations stipulate, but the CR-Z is sure to have superb acceleration and response at any rpm with a set-up like this. Great to see Honda and Mugen not forgetting that there are tons of fans out there waiting to see the great brand dip its feet in motorsports a little more!
