McLaren 570S GT4

The McLaren 570S GT4 race car has the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8, gearbox and carbon fiber Monocell II chassis as the road-going supercar. The bodywork, however, features both aluminum and carbon fiber, while the street car just utilizes aluminum.

Other race car features include two-way adjustable dampers, a roll cage, center-lock magnesium wheels and an air jacking system.
The McLaren 570S GT4 features a 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 which produces 641bhp and 500 lb ft of torque. Zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) takes three seconds and its top speed is 204 mph (329 km/h).
British team Black Bull Ecurie Ecosse will race a 570S GT4 in the British GT championship alongside its 650S GT3.

This nine-race run will serve as development for the 570S GT4 before it's offered to customers. The 570S GT4 will cost roughly $226,853.
