The Honda NSX Concept-GT has been unveiled in Japan, previewing the brand’s challenger for the 2014 Super GT racing series.

Destined to tackle the GT500 class of the domestic racing series, the Honda NSX Concept-GT was revealed at the Suzuka Circuit ahead of this weekend’s fifth round of the 2013 season.

A dedicated racing machine based on the NSX concept seen at the 2012 Detroit auto show, Honda says the Concept-GT complies with 2014 GT500 regulations by being powered by a mid-mounted turbocharged 2.0-litre direct-injection four-cylinder engine equipped with a hybrid system.

Earlier this month, a prototype of the new-generation NSX appeared on track at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, giving us our first opportunity to hear the new Japanese supercar.

Production of the Honda NSX, badged as an Acura in North America, is set to start at the newly established Performance Manufacturing Centre in Marysville, Ohio in 2015.

      10 years too late…Gone the glory days of the TypeR era!
      Honda use to be a premium japanese car maker, now has the worest looking car range. Except the aging Accord Euro.

        For car manufacturers, it’s only too late when they’re already on the verge of bankruptcy, which I don’t think Honda is.

        As long as they can still make great cars, people will come back.

        my thoughts exactly! the new cr-v, civic, city, crz blah… IMHO the accord euro is the last thing they have going for them in the looks department.

        • Dave W

          I thought the CR-Z is actually a pretty good looking hatchback. Which makes it even harder to accept the gutless hybrid engine.

          With a proper high revving 2.0L VTEC or a turbo, it could’ve been right up there with the rest of the hot hatches as most reviews seem to point out how good the handling is. A wasted opportunity.

    This thing is going to be outdated by the time it hits public roads. Styling has definitely moved on from all the sharp edges. They’ll have to smooth it out before release.

    Emission regulations should not be in place for sports car racing. It restricts the large engine sounds and it doesn’t make much difference to world emissions anyway.

    The new NSX looks good, Lamborghini good. Coupled with Honda’s engineering it will also be a supercar without the ownership headaches. This car will boost Honda’s image and this can only be a good thing.
