The McLaren 570S GT4 Race Car Is More "Enhanced" for 2020

The kit's development has already undergone it final test, and was already installed on both 570S GT4 competing entries in the Gulf 12 Hour event. This new alternative is accepted for racing from 1st March 2020, and is on hand for racing from March 1, 2020. It also has a factory-fit option, and can be ordered as a retrofit item.

The endurance braking system integrates bespoke suspension uprights together with a new 6-piston front caliper design joined with uprated brake pads. These features allow excellent braking consistency and trimmed down deterioration.

The 570S GT4 was introduced for Customer Racing teams during the 2017 season, with 2019 its most successful year of race wins and podium finishes where it competed. The 570S GT4 model became the most successful GT model for McLaren, bagging 140 podium finishes by the Customer Racing teams during the season in Scandinavia, UK, and North America.

Boasting of rigid core and optimised occupant safety levels, the 570S GT4 offers its popular lightweight carbon fiber MonoCell II chassis--a first in the GT4 lineup. The race car has an impressive seven-speed seamless-shift transmission and a 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 M828TE engine similar with its cousin, the 570S Coupe.
