McLaren Introduces the Track-Only Artura Trophy Customer Race Car

Quite possibly more so than any other manufacturer, McLaren’s history is deeply rooted in motorsport competition. As such, it’s frankly unsurprising that the British brand sells a wide range of ever-more capable turnkey, track-only race cars, culminating in McLaren’s newly-revealed Artura Trophy.

The Artura Trophy is a circuit-only, non-road-legal race car that’s built for use in the upcoming McLaren Trophy Europe season — a Pro-Am single-make championship consisting of 10 50-minute races held over the course of 5 weekends. Racing alongside the Fanatec GT World Challenge series — including one round supporting the iconic 24 Hours of Spa — the series’ first two rounds begin next year on June 2nd, at France’s Paul Ricard Circuit. No longer hampered by regulatory restrictions surrounding power, weight, or downforce, the Trophy-spec Artura sees the regular Artura’s 3.0-liter V6 lose its hybrid system in favor of pure petrol-power, with the Artura Trophy putting down 585hp. The vehicle also gains a pronounced carbon fiber aero kit with a new front splitter and canards and an extended rear wing.

Interestingly, after the completion of this ten-race Pro-Am series, the Artura Trophy can actually be converted back to a regular GT4-spec race car, too. And, just like with previous Trophy-spec models from McLaren, the purchase of the Artura Trophy includes the track-only car itself, plus a robust concierge package that includes hotel stays and transportation to and from each race weekend, a seat in the exclusive McLaren paddock, and support from the factory’s race department.

Pricing and availability have yet to be revealed for the McLaren Artura Trophy race car, though you can sign up to receive more info on the company’s website.
