Honda Performance Development (HPD) has come up with a racing version of the Honda CR-Z hybrid which they will show at this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours.

This CR-Z Racer has a totl output of 200 hp and 237 hp, which is not that sporty to be honest. It is the sort of power that the road-going version of the car should have had. The displayed cars, including the CR-Z hybrid coupe, will also run demonstration laps around the track, driven by famous drivers before the start of the official race. In Europe, the CR-Z Racer is used as a pace car as part of Speed EuroSeries.
