McLaren details track-dedicated 570S GT4 and 570S Sprintby Justin King
The Sprint edition is geared for private track days, though it can be upgraded to GT4 spec to compete.
McLaren has detailed two track-dedicated models that will be added to the company's Sports Series lineup.
Based on the entry-level street-legal model, the new additions include a 570S Sprint for private track days and a 570S GT4 (pictured) to compete in the British GT Championship racing series.
The company's motorsports division and GT racing specialists CRS GT Limited have already started work with customer team Black Bull Ecurie Ecosse to develop the race car, which will eventually be eligible to compete in all GT4 homologated championships globally from the 2017 season.
The 570S is said to be the first GT4-spec car to take advantage of a carbon-fiber chassis architecture. An FIA-approved roll cage and fire extinguisher system have been added, while the body has been tweaked to cover a wider track both front and rear. Other track-focused tweaks include twi-way adjustable dampers, a redesigned rear wing and a high-temperature radiator.
The 570S Sprint will be introduced in the coming weeks. It will be upgradeable to meet the GT4 spec if a buyer eventually decides to graduate from track days to amateur competition.
