The McLaren Artura Trophy is the GT4 racer you can buy

Ever wanted to become a GT4 racer but liked to take some experience on an actual McLaren racer? Well now’s your chance!

The McLaren Artura kick starts a new era for the British supercar maker. It is the new entry-level McLaren supercar that will lay down the path for upcoming high-level models with its hybrid tech and new platform. However, if you want McLaren’s entry level supercar to be racey then it can be: meet the Artura Trophy.

The Artura Trophy is basically a GT4 race car which doesn’t have to abide by any motorsport regulations. It’s a GT4 racer that even you and I can buy (only if we have a Swiss bank, of course) and then race it in a “relaxed and sociable” one-make series. We’ll talk about the one-make series later.

Now, the biggest difference between the Trophy and the Artura GT4 is that the former doesn’t have any electrical hybrid assistance. It has got a mad 120-degree V6 that produces 577 horsepower. Unlike the GT4 car, the Trophy’s delimited so that “amateur GT drivers and aspiring professional drivers” can get the full taste of how a GT4 car feels, unleashed.

Let’s move on to the one-make series in question – the McLaren Trophy Championship. This racing series will start in mid-2023 and take place across iconic circuits, namely, Paul Ricard, Misano, Spa, Hockenheim and Catalunya. The Artura Trophy and old 570S Trophy will take part in the series with the teams sponsored by Pirelli to support the tire supply.

“We are excited to announce the McLaren Trophy, featuring the new Artura Trophy race car; an elite motorsport championship with a premium paddock experience that is the epitome of the McLaren brand. As the world of Pro-Am GT racing continues to grow, we look forward to welcoming both old friends and the next generation of McLaren drivers to our paddock and many exciting seasons of racing with the spectacular new Artura Trophy race car,” said Gareth Dunsmore, Chief Marketing Officer at McLaren.

Oh, and don’t you worry, you will get all the lime light one needs to become an elite racer as McLaren will stream the races “in professional broadcast.”
