The Artura GT4 will be priced from £200,000 – roughly £10,000 more than the road car. However, McLaren says options can take this notably higher, with a comprehensive list to “support a range of competition and track environments”.

These include the fitting of a passenger seat, a tyre-pressure monitoring system, a collision-avoidance radar system, additional lights for night racing and a drinks system.

All cars will be built to order, and prospective buyers are invited to register their interest now.

“The Artura GT4 is the second race car to be built from the ground-up by McLaren Automotive’s motorsport division,” said Ian Morgan, director of motorsport at McLaren.

“Based on the revolutionary new McLaren Artura, it represents a significant step up from the outgoing 570S GT4, itself a hugely successful competition car which 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’re already seeing from our extensive test-and-development programme.”

McLaren’s newest addition joins a number of other GT4 cars you can buy. These include the Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport, Mercedes-AMG GT4 and recently released BMW M4 GT4.
