Honda Performance Development division will display the CR-Z at the 24hr Le Mans endurance race.

Honda will be taking this CR-Z Racer to Le Mans but the car will not compete in the 24hr endurance race there.

The car will be a part of a display put up at the historic racing event called "Le Mans vers le Futur" (Le Mans towards the future) but the CR-Z Racer will run a few demonstration laps around the track.

The CR-Z Racer is a creation of Honda Performance Development, a division of Honda USA. It is a FWD hybrid vehicle powered by a 1.5 liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol/gasoline unit coupled to an electric motor fitted between the engine and the 6-speed manual gearbox. The electric motor is fed juice from a 7 kWh/173 volt lithium-ion battery. Total output is 200 PS (147 kW / 197 bhp) and 237 Nm (175 lb-ft) of torque.

The Honda Performance Development CR-Z racer did compete in the 2010 Thunderhill 25 Hours race in Napa, California in December of last year.
