But fair warning – it won’t be cheap, because this race car is just like any other race car, expensive. Muscle car fans that believe this type of vehicle also belongs to the circuit – not just the drag strip – will need to prepare to shell out a cool $259,000.
But paying that amount of money will net you a Chevrolet Camaro prepared for according to the GT4 class regulations – so you can strap in the harness and start flexing your driving skills in series such as the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Series and the Pirelli World Challenge Series, presuming you live in the United States. Pratt & Miller Engineering, a well-known Corvette race car builder, has been tasked to complete the transformation into the GT4.R, and the modifications are apparently well worth the buck. The stripped vehicle gets new doors and front end complete with carbon fiber, the inside gains a FIA-approved safety cell and under the hood resides a competition-ready version of the 6.2-liter V8 with different camshafts.
Power is delivered to the wheels via a six-speed Xtrac sequential transmission, and there’s also a limited-slip differential at the back complete with adjustable traction control and anti-lock brakes. Pratt & Miller also tested in the wind tunnel the new body kit, with new splitter and diveplanes at the front, plus a massive, adjustable wing on the tail. The Öhlins coilover suspension will also lend assistance to the Camaro GT4.R, which faces plenty of competition – including from its classic rival, the Mustang.
