have received several modifications in terms of chassis and aerodynamics in order to prepare the cars for the high demands of competition. While the 570S GT4 is a purpose-built racer that’s been developed by McLaren GT and motorsport specialist CRS GT Ltd, the 570S Sprint has been created as a trackday vehicle.

570S GT4
 
The 570S GT4 is a track car that can be homologated for several world GT categories. To do so McLaren GT and CRS GT Ltd introduced a race-focused chassis, which includes djustable dampers and coilovers, centre-locking magnesium wheels and a roll cage approved by FIA regulations.
 
To prepare it for the track, the 570S GT4 received a full aerodynamic package, including reshaped aluminium and carbonfibre bodywork, a larger front splitter, a smoothed floor assembly and an adjustable rear wing.
 
The track car gets the same 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine from the road car, with a 570hp output and 600Nm of torque. Race restrictors may force these numbers to decrease.
 
570S Sprint
 
Although it shares many parts with the GT4, the 570S Sprint is more of a trackday car that retains certain creature comforts to make it more usable. No exact specifications have been released yet, but it also gets a road-specification engine and receives its very own aero-package.
 
The 570S Sprint will allow its buyers to upgrade it GT4 spec if at some point they feel the need of a more potent package.
