McLaren has announced two new track-dedicated models will join the Sports Series range - the 570S GT4 and the 570S Sprint.
Developed in conjunction with McLaren GT motorsport division, the 570S GT4 will now enter a season-long development programme in the British GT championship with customer team, Black Bull Ecurie Ecosse.
Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Automotive explained: ‘As with road-going models wearing a McLaren badge, the 570S GT4 and 570S Sprint models are about being an engaging and exciting drive. The launch of the Sports Series has broadened McLaren to a new audience, introducing technologies to the sports car market and to a new group of customers. The 570S GT4 is doing the same in the motorsport world, and will bring the opportunity to own and race a McLaren – previously limited to a very small number of people – to a much wider group.’
The track-only 570S GT4 shares the carbon fibre MonoCell II chassis architecture with the other models in the Sports Series. The bodywork is formed over wider track both front and rear to accommodate centre-locking cast magnesium alloy wheels shod with slick Pirelli racing tyres. Two-way adjustable motorsport dampers with coil-over springs are fitted front and rear, and an on-board air jacking system is fitted as standard.
With a 'pure focus on laptimes', the 570S GT4 features a unique aerodynamic package which includes a GT4-specification high level rear wing, mounted on aluminium pylons, a larger front splitter and reprofiled floor assembly. An additional front centre high temperature radiator sits below a GT3-inspired bonnet with radiator exit ducts. These upgrades have been designed to optimise the aerodynamic performance and cooling of the 570S GT4 to ensure it is able to perform in the ‘harshest race conditions’.
The McLaren designed and developed 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 M838TE engine is carried over from the road-going Sports Series model. The seven-speed shift gearbox is also familiar to the other models in the range, transferring power to the track via the rear wheels.
Black Bull Ecurie Ecosse will run one example of the 570S GT4 alongside the confirmed entry of the 650S GT3 with Factory Driver Rob Bell alongside Alaisdair McCaig. Driver details for the season will be announced shortly.
The 570S GT4 will make its public development debut at the opening round of the British GT Championship at Brands Hatch, UK over the weekend 16-17 April. It will be eligible for all GT4 homologated championships globally from the 2017 season, and is priced from £159,900 (ex works).
Further details for the 570S Sprint, including pricing, will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
