The Honda NSX Super GT race car has finally been revealed at Suzuka Raceway, as the teams begin testing their vehicles for the 2014 season.

The Japanese automaker has already confirmed that it’ll be replacing its HSV-010 GT race car with the NSX in the GT500 class for the 2014 Japanese Super GT Series. As we know, starting with the 2014 season, competitors in the GT500 class and all cars racing in DTM will use common technical regulations.

Unfortunately, little is known about the powerplant that Honda will be using for its NSX GT car. While the road car is expected to use a V6 hybrid setup, the HSV-010 GT was powered by a 3.4-liter V8 engine that was taken from Formula Nippon and optimized for use in Super GT.

One thing to note however is that the HSV-010 GT was a front-engine, rear-wheel-drive race car and Honda has expressed a desire to run a mid-engine setup for its NSX. The race car is expected to make around 500 horsepower, similar to the rest of the GT500 field.
