Honda Performance Development (HPD) has announced a new race-ready version of its 3.5-Litre V6 engine that serves in the production Accord sedan. The Honda HR35TT twin-turbocharged V6, as the engine is known will debut in the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship (USCC) at the 2014 Mobil-1 12 Hours of Sebring. The engine will be used in both a Riley Gen3 prototype chassis campaigned by Starworks Motorsport and a prototype class HPD ARX-03b Honda race car by Extreme Speed Motorsports. 

The all-aluminum, direct fuel injected V6 displacing 3.5-litre runs on 100 octane E-10 fuel and has been derived from Honda’s J35 engine, which has seen tremendous success in racing circuits, totaling 24 wins in individual races since its debut in 2011. Competing in the prototype class at the USCC means that the engine must produce between 450PS and 650PS of max power, while the cars must be limited to a top speed of 306 kmph. A version of the Honda HR35TT twin-turbocharged V6 engine could also end up powering the upcoming Acura NSX.
