Although Honda Racing released a bit of info and a single image of the car they intend to run in the Super GT's GT500 class next year, little was known about their NSX replacement or its prowess as a racing car. But now thanks to an eager Super GT fan, we have a handful of images and a bit of video of Honda's new GT500 race car, what they have dubbed the HSV-10.

The HSV, which stands for Honda Sports Velocity, is powered by a front mounted 3.4-liter V8. Power is transfered to the rear wheels through a six-speed sequential gearbox and the HSV is said to make somewhere around 500hp.

Based on Honda's press release, the Japanese automaker will campaign the HSV-010 in the 2010 Super GT series, and although a driver lineup has not been announced, the cars will bear the numbers 8, 18, 32 and 100 when they make their racing debut at the Suzuka Circuit on May 21st.

According to our sources, Honda has no plans to sell a road going version of the HSV, and has instead found a loophole in the Super GT regulations which allows the automaker to run a car that is 'production feasible.'

That being the case, it appears your only chance of seeing the HSV-10 before it is covered in racing livery and tangled up with a handful of other Japanese supercars, is in the videos featured below.
