Artura-GT4

McLaren Automotive looks to wow audiences at the Goodwood Festival of Speed as the British marque announces that it will bring the race-ready Artura GT4 to the said motoring event. The Artura GT4 is based on the all-new McLaren Artura luxury supercar and builds on the huge successes of the multi-championship-winning 570S GT4 and 720S GT3 competition cars.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What engine powers the McLaren Artura GT4 race car?

    The McLaren Artura GT4 is powered by a twin-turbo V6 paired with an Axial Flux E-Motor.
  • Who will drive the Artura GT4 as it takes on the Goodwood hill cimb?

    Commandeering the race car will be last year’s Timed Shootout Final winner and McLaren Factory Driver, Rob Bell.
  • Powering the McLaren Artura GT4 is a compact twin-turbo 120-degree V6 gasoline mill paired with an Axial Flux E-Motor and is mated to an optimized seven-speed gearbox. The new V6 engine features fast-responding twin turbochargers which offer improved throttle response and fuel economy. A Bosch Motorsport ECU controls the V6 powerplant and fine-tunes the Balance of Performance management.

    Other notable features include the fixed FIA 8862-spec driver’s seat with adjustable pedals for reach, the GT3-inspired illuminated steering wheel, and the Bosch DDU instrument display inside the cockpit.

    “The Artura GT4 is the second race car to be built from the ground up by McLaren Automotive’s Motorsport division. Based on the revolutionary new McLaren Artura, it represents a significant step up from the outgoing 570S GT4, itself a hugely successful competition car that has achieved many race and championship wins with our customer racing teams. With lighter weight, extremely precise handling characteristics, and enhanced durability — as well as the packaging and efficiency advantages and all-round serviceability for mechanics of the new V6 powertrain — the Artura GT4 will set new class standards, as we are already seeing from our extensive test and development program,” said McLaren Automotive Director of Motorsports Ian Morgan.
