Power comes from a 6.2-liter, supercharged eight-cylinder engine. Output is pegged at 640 horsepower, with no mention of torque at this time.

It's track-ready out of the box, packing 11 heat exchangers to keep the operating temperature nice and low during extended track driving.

Many of the car's exterior bits are engineered to manage airflow, including the hollowed-out "Flowtie" badge up front.

Naturally, the standard transmission is a six-speed manual. This one's got automatic rev-matching on downshifts, in case you can't heel-toe.

If you're not a fan of swapping cogs yourself, there's also a 10-speed automatic transmission on offer. Yes, that's a lot of gears.
