How hard-core is the GT4.R? Under the hood is a dry-sump lubricated 6.2-liter V8 developed by Chevrolet Racing to make up to 480 horsepower. That gets bolted to a six-speed Xtrac sequential gearbox with Magaline pneumatic paddle shifters.
The 3,131-pound racer also features two-way adjustable Ohlin dampers, adjustable antiroll bars and Brembo Motorsport six-piston front calipers. Out back there are Brembo four-piston calipers taken directly from the Camaro ZL1 street car. The package rides on 18-inch Forgeline wheels.
Aerodynamic alterations meet global GT4 race class specifications with a 21-way adjustable carbon fiber rear wing, front dive planes and front splitter. To further help save shave weight, the doors and front fascia are also constructed from carbon fiber.
Inside the cabin, it's all business with a motorsports steering wheel with adjustment controls for the Bosch Motorsports ECU to alter the car's antilock brake and traction control behavior. Sorry, there's no fancy infotainment or Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability here.
