McLaren will produce road-going GT4 racing cars, a kit that will be offered to customers by invitation only

McLaren has confirmed that the car will build road-going GT4 race cars based on the 600LT, dubbed the 620r.

Spotted while testing for the first time, the 620p design features are linked to last year's ultra-exclusive MCO X 570S, with an aerodynamic package clearly adapted from McLaren's racing program.

Alongside the prominent rear spoiler and front splitter layout, there's a rooftop air intake and new air intakes cut from the hood. Further changes include exhaust feeding through the bumper in place of the top exit points of the 600LT, a feature that is featured in Absolutely Woking GT4 Cars.

A special wheel design, most likely made from super-light materials such as magnesium, can also be seen. While this prototype doesn't seem to sit lower to the ground, we can assume that the 620p will feature custom suspension settings compared to the 600LT. Whatever the race-bred clearance setting remains to be seen.

Running registration plate shows that this 620p is powered by the same twin turbo 3,8-liter V8 like the 600LT, but judging by the car's name, expected to be bumped up to 620hp (612bhp) - more regulation than the limited racing models.

The interior remains to be seen, but expect race-specific details such as bucket seats, six-point seat belts and the removal of unused gadgets and features.

McLaren is yet to reveal any details about the car, but when asked, a spokesperson confirmed availability and said: “This is a car that will be offered to select customers by invitation only.”

It will be built in severely limited numbers, although probably not as exclusively as the 10 MCO 570S x wagons built for US customers, and will cost significantly more than the 600LT. More details should follow next year.
