McLaren has rolled out with a “refreshed” version of its 570S GT4 car for 2020, which features a new optional endurance brake kit.

The British manufacturer, which took over the GT4 project from CRS Ltd. in 2018, produced a so-called Evo kit to the car last year and has since made further updates that were recently proven in December’s Gulf 12 Hours.

The endurance brake kit, which will be homologated for competition beginning on March 1, includes bespoke suspension uprights and a new six-piston front caliper design combined with uprated brake discs and pads, offering improved braking consistency and reduced degradation.

The 570S GT4 had its most successful year to date in 2019, with 140 podium finishes achieved by it customer teams worldwide.

The price of car has been increased to £180,000 ($234,300) but includes the previously optional removable quick-release steering wheel.

A ‘Sprint Power Upgrade’ for £600 ($781), meanwhile, will increase the engine output to 532 horsepower to drive outside of the car’s SRO GT4 homologation.
