McLaren Automotive hasn’t forgotten its racing roots, recently the brand officially revealed two new track-only models with the introduction of the McLaren 570S GT4 and the 570S Sprint. The track-only 570S GT4 shares the carbon fiber MonoCell II chassis architecture with the other models in the Sports Series, magnesium alloy wheels and Pirelli slick tyres, a GT4-spec aero package including a high-level rear wing and is powered by the familiar twin-turbo, 3.8-litre V8 mated to a 7 Speed SSG transmission.
’I am extremely pleased to welcome Ansar to McLaren Automotive in such a key role.’ commented McLaren’s CEO Mike Flewitt. ‘Motorsport is part of the lifeblood of the McLaren brand, and this role will be key to our long-term plans as we continue to expand the product range and customer-appeal around the world.’
Priced from £159,900 the 570S GT4 is set to debut at the British GT Championship race at Brands Hatch next month.
