McLaren is expanding its lineup with the addition of two new track-focused models: the 570S GT4 and the 570S Sprint. They're based on the automaker's existing 570S sports car, which went on sale late last year.

Drivers familiar with the idea of GT3 Porsche models or Superleggera Lamborghinis will already get the gist of the 570S GT4 and Sprint, as they're lighter, faster and more exciting than the standard road car. But there's a big difference: The 570S GT4 and Sprint are designed purely for track use rather than any sort of road driving.

Although McLaren has not yet announced details about the 570S Sprint, the brand says it'll be focused on private track days rather than a specific racing series. That's different from the GT4, which is designed to compete at sanctioned GT-class events globally.

As for modifications, the track-oriented McLarens are loaded with them: The brand has already announced that the 570S GT4 touts Pirelli racing tires, a full roll cage, a wider track and an improved motorsport suspension, and we expect similar upgrades for the Sprint model. Meanwhile, the 3.8-liter turbocharged V6 engine and the slick-shifting dual-clutch transmission are carried over from the road car.

While McLaren has not yet announced whether these models will be available in the United States, we'd love to see them here, and we suspect many racing-obsessed drivers agree. The 570S GT4 will make its European debut at the British GT Championship at Brands Hatch next month.
