Don't know for sure, but it could be due to rules or waiver requirements. They almost certainly had to seek some sort of accommodation to run the larger engine, and there are likely many, many, many regulations they need to adhere to.
Smaller throttle bodys or putting in restrictors are a common method of equalizing horsepower in racing series with different displacement engines. IMSA and the FIA call it BOP "Balance of Performance".

It is a lot easier than V8 Supercars old equivalency formula of using the sum of data points every 50RPM on a control engine dyno.

Definitely has some aggressive lines and a stout power plant but I'll have to settle for my lowly 14 GT.

Man it looks killer! I can't wait to see the s650 in the wild. Street version with some of the style of this car might make me get one. Once you see it lowered on cool wheels opinions start to change.
