Widebody mid engine honda cr-z ?

Did a search, couldn't find anything on it


Widebody, mid-engine Honda CR-Z coming to SuperGT?

The GT Channel crew have snagged a handful of shots of a widebody Honda CR-Z being built for an unknown venue, and while it could just be an elaborate show car for this January's Tokyo Auto Salon, it's possible Honda is prepping the CR-Z for a run in Japan's SuperGT touring car series.

With one of the Honda HSV-010 teams holding down second place in the GT500 class this season, HoMoCo could be looking to capitalize off its success and the popularity of the hybrid hatch in Japan by fielding a CR-Z is the GT300 class. The engine and chassis restrictions are less rigid compared to the top-tier SuperGT racers, so the mid-mounted V6 (or V8?) shown in the gallery below is a-okay with JAF (the regulating body behind SuperGT) even with a set of turbos.

If the build is taking place now (check the carbon fiber doors coming out of the autoclave), Honda or one of its racing affiliates is likely to start testing the CR-Z racer this fall before the new season kicks off in March of 2011.

why do you think i've been calling your sister lately?

But on a serious note, If wider wasn't better. Then why would they have done it? To accommodate power? To give it more control perhaps? or to make it flashy ?

Looks so guys like Arash and typernammer would try to duplicate it. You really thing that under powered pos is going to be lacking anything in terms of grip with a set of race rubber under it? As a race car without the hybrid BS traction could be a problem but thats not relavent to any road going hybrids.

They need to fit regulation meeting racing slicks on them....Which comes typically on 18x12JJ or something ridiculous these days at superGT.

Correct me if i'm wrong but that cr-z is a mid engine v6. A short wheel base + mr setup will make that car oversteer. And as hk2000 said, they need to run race regulation rubber that probably needs those wide fenders.

Who said anything about putting it on a road car?

btw, you should probably check what you typed. I'm having the hardest time trying to figure out wtf your saying
