McLaren 570S GT4 and 570S Sprint are the “tamest” track-prepped cars


McLaren has just unveiled two track-day specials of the 570S – the 570S GT4 and 570S Sprint. These two machines, built based on the road-going Sports Series model are designed and engineered primarily for their motorsports foray.

The 570S GT4, as its name suggests, is developed with GT racing in mind. It receives race-spec goodies such as adjustable dampers with coilovers, full aerodynamic package, centre-locking magnesium wheels and an FIA-approved roll cage.2016 McLaren 570S GT4 - AutoBuzz.my

At the back of this GT4 lies the same 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, but it’s slightly detuned (down from 562 hp and 600 Nm) to promote fair racing. A seven-speed seamless shift gearbox is tasked with transferring all the power to the rear wheels.

The 570S Sprint on the other hand, is specially built for enthusiasts. It features most of the GT4’s racing components, but comes with added creature comforts such as air conditioning and leather seats. Buyers can choose to spec-up to the GT4 trim though, should they see fit.

Not much information on the Sprint has been released up to this point, but what we do know is that the GT4 will cost some £159,900 (approximately RM954,000) and will be making its maiden race debut at the British GT championship in April 2016.

Any cars will do fine, not so for big MPVs which he loathes...
