It was announced on October 16, 2012 that the Super GT championship and the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters will unify technical regulations for the 2014 season.[10] The previous GT500 engines of 3.4L V8 in capacity will be replaced with 2.0L Turbocharged Inline-four engines.[11] With the new rule changes, all 3 manufacturers will run the 2014 season with new cars, the Honda HSV-010 GT and Lexus SC430 will be replaced with the new mid-engined Honda NSX-GT and the Lexus RC-F respectively. Nissan will continue to use Nissan GT-R for 2014, but with a new car built for the new regulations. All 3 cars were unveiled at the 2013 42nd International Pokka Sapporo 1000km.[12][13]
