Honda CR-Z SuperGT Racer Shows Off at Honda Meeting



Every year, Honda brings members of the media in from all over the world, to Japan for the annual Honda Meeting. The press get a sneak peek at the latest and greatest innovations developed by Honda. At this years event the automaker showed off two Super-GT racecars, one of which is a CR-Z.

While the CR-Z that is raced by Mugen in collaboration with Honda is indeed a hybrid, it does not use the standard car's engine. This uses a 2.7 liter, twin-turbo V6 that makes an epic sound. It can even be heard over the thunderous V8 from the second racecar in the video.

Autoguide was at the Honda Meeting and has some tasty video from the trip. To watch it, head over to Autoguide.com.

Honda builds incredible engines. Always have.

So, I take it the 3.4 liter v8 is basically 2 B17's spliced together sort of lol.
