Toyota, Honda And Nissan Unveil New Supra, NSX And GT-R Super GT Racers

Toyota, Honda and Nissan have pulled the wraps off their new Super GT GT500 race cars that are set to compete from 2020.

Super GT and DTM are merging their regulations from the next season, resulting in a number combined races held in the respective championships. Under these regulations, vehicles must use 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engines mounted up front and delivering no more than 620 HP.

First off we have the new Supra. The launch of the racer marks the first time the Supra name has been used in the Japanese racing championship since 2006. Adorning the racer is bold and aggressive bodywork in exposed carbon fiber, sporting a number of radical aerodynamic parts, including a towering rear wing.

Next we have the Honda NSX-GT. Everyone knows that the road-going NSX is mid-engined, and so is the outgoing race car. To comply with the new regulations, the company had to move the engine to the front but retained the vehicle’s mid-engined proportions.

Last, but not least, is the updated Nissan GT-R Nismo GT500 also fitted with the required 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and eye-catching aerodynamic parts.

Before the respective 2020 Super GT and DTM championships kick off next year, two special races will be held at the end of this year. In November, a special ‘Super GT x DTM Dream Race’ will be held where current Super GT manufacturers join Audi, BMW, and R-Motorsport Aston Martin for a race at Hockenheim. A fleet of 12 cars from DTM will then travel over to Japan to compete against the current field of Super GTs.
