New Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R is the brand’s first turnkey GT4 racer

The recently unveiled road-going Chevrolet Camaro – the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE track-capable sports car – is simply amazing in terms of performance. Already boasting an array of aerodynamic technologies, the 2018 Camaro ZL1 1LE is powered by the LT4 supercharged engine that could offer up to 650 hp of output as mated to a manual six-speed transmission.

But it seems General Motors isn’t finished yet with the Chevrolet Camaro. While we were getting amazed on how dynamically incredible the new Camaro car would be, GM jumped the gun and fired another surprise – a more powerful Camaro that is built to race on the track. GM is announcing the arrival of the new Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R and as its name indicates it is a racer with GT4 specifications.

The new Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R is actually the brand’s first turn-key racecar – a complete GT4 vehicle straight from the factory – built to comply with global sporting regulations. It is engineered by Pratt & Miller, the same outfit that built the Corvette C7.R and the Cadillac ATS-V.R. Chevrolet has also designated Pratt & Miller to be in charge of production of the new Camaro GT4.R.

Mercedes-AMG GT4 Concept may debut at 2017 Geneva Motor Show

Could we expect a new premium performance vehicle from Mercedes-AMG that would compete directly against the Porsche Panamera? If Autocar’s sources are to be believed, Mercedes-AMG would soon unveil a concept version of the much rumored Mercedes-AMG GT4 performance luxury four-door sedan at the upcoming 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.

This design study will preview Mercedes-AMG’s new GT4 offering, serving as the main attraction at Mercedes-Benz’s booth at the Geneva Motor Show. The unveiling of the AMG GT4 Concept would form part of the German premium carmaker’s 50th anniversary celebration this year. According to Autocar, the production version of the AMG GT4 would be launched next year (2018) in Europe. It would be pitted against the likes of the Panamera of Porsche, the 6 Series Gran Coupé of BMW and the A7 and RS7 of Audi. Once it achieves its final form, the AMG GT4 would become the performance brand’s third dedicated series production model line, after the AMG SLS and the current AMG GT. It is said to be the replacement for the CLS Shooting Brake.

Tobias Moers, chief executive of Mercedes-AMG, cryptically indicated in January that the Mercedes-AMG GT4 could be really coming. Moers was answering several questions from automotive Web site Motoring when he gave an ambiguous declaration about the performance sedan – saying that speculations of an upcoming AMG GT4 are not necessarily wrong. This tells us that at least some of the rumored details are true.

Just recently, an accident happened at the Autobahn involving two private vehicles and two trucks – with one carrying seven Porsche Cayman GT4 units. The incident, which happened near Dortmund, Germany, has resulted to injuries both on the passengers and the vehicles.

According to reports, the transporter was hit from behind by another truck while traversing the Kamen area of Dortmund. The transporter was forced to break because of the traffic but the dutch lorry that was following it closely from behind failed to hit the breaks. The latter then crashed into the rear end of the transporter. To make things worse, another car in an adjacent lane that swerved to avoid the two trucks unfortunately got entangled with another car. All four vehicles were blocking the entire autobahn causing heavy traffic affecting all the motorists. The road had to be closed.

There were no casualties in the said accident but the drivers had injuries and had to be admitted to the hospital for treatment. The injuries did not stop there, though. It’s most unfortunate what happened to the seven Porsche Cayman GT4s that were quietly sitting in the transporter.

McLaren Automotive is introducing two new track-dedicated models of the Sports Series -- the 570S GT4 and the 570S Sprint. Interestingly, owners of the 570S Sprint could have their track racer upgraded to GT4 specifications. The McLaren 570S GT4 is underpinned by the carbon fiber MonoCell II chassis architecture that also underpins other Sports Series models.

This will mark the first time for this technology to be adapted for the GT4 category, where race-derived material could prove very advantageous because of its strength and light weight nature. Moreover, the McLaren 570S GT4 comes with an FIA-approved rollcage and fire extinguisher system, thereby helping ensure that the driver is protected from harm.

The track car’s re-profiled bodywork – makes use of carbon fiber and aluminum – that is formed over wider track on both front and rear, thereby provides room for the center-locking lightweight cast magnesium alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli racing tires. The front and rear axles of the McLaren 570S GT4 feature two-way adjustable motorsport dampers with coil-over springs. An on-board air jacking system is fitted as standard on the McLaren 570S GT4.

The Porsche GT family just got a little bigger as the German manufacturer introduced the all-new Cayman GT4. According to Porsche, it is for the first time when they are introducing a GT sports car based on the Cayman, which features components of the 911 GT3. What’s even more interesting is that the Cayman GT4 is able to lap the Nurburgring in just 7 minutes and 40 seconds.

Under the hood, there is a 3.8-liter flat-six petrol engine that produces 385 hp (283 kW), derived by the 911 Carrera S engine. As a result, the Cayman GT4 is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds, while top speed is 295 km/h or 183 mph. Fuel consumption is 10.3 l/100 km.

The first visual impact with the vehicle shows that this is no ordinary Cayman as it features three inlet openings at the front as well as a large fixed rear wing.

We already know that Porsche is preparing a successor of the Cayman R, dubbed the Cayman GT4. What we didn’t know is that the upcoming Porsche Cayman GT4 will get the 3.8-liter twin-turbo boxer engine that will generate around 450 hp. This means that the Cayman GT4, will get the same engine that powers the 2014 Porsche 911 (991) Turbo.

As a result, the vehicle will also receive extra cooling vents, lightweight alloy wheels, centered exhaust pipes as well as a more efficient braking system. In addition, the Cayman GT4 will get a new rollcage in order to protect its passengers even better.

Regarding the design, we expect a new body kit but also a big rear wing. In the Porsche 911 (991) Turbo, the twin-turbo 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine delivers 520 hp and can push it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds, while top speed is limited at 318 km/h (197.5 mph).

Porsche has just introduced the Cayman GTS, which is the most powerful model of the entry-level coupe, but it appears that the German manufacturer is still considering a hardcore version of its sports car. Dubbed Cayman GT4, the new Porsche will arrive in the next three years and it will be more powerful but also more expensive as it will be comparable to the 911 GT3.

The GT3 currently costs $125,000 but according to our sources the new coupe will bring many features found on the more powerful model. As a result, the Porsche Cayman GT4 will come with a transmission similar to the modified PDK found on the GT3.

The engine that will power this model remains the big question mark because if everything goes well at this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race, the new Cayman GT4 will receive four-cylinder plug-in hybrid powertrain.
