Tearing past the competition with an ear-shattering roar in a blur is what the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE does best. In fact, it performs well enough to top Ferrari at the world’s most notorious track.

General Motors is rolling with the “go big or go home” motto when it comes to the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro. It wasn’t long ago that Chevrolet revealed the Camaro ZL1 1LE performance model, but now the American automaker is upping the ante. The new Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R is a racing model designed to compete with the best of the best.
The new Camaro GT4.R is the first GT customer car from General Motors that’s available to the global market. Chevrolet joined forces with Pratt & Miller to create the track-ready model. The GT4 build means it can take to the track in the IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenges Grant Sport class and Pirelli World Challenge’s GTS class.
“The Camaro GT4.R is a true racing customer car that Chevrolet is proud to support,” said Shawn Meagher, Chevrolet’s Program Manager for the Camaro GT4.R.
Under the hood of the Camaro GT4.R lies a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that delivers a heart-pounding 650 hp. It comes perfectly complemented with Brembo brakes, adjustable traction control, and much more.
The track-oriented model is set to make its official debut at the Pirelli World Challenge. Two Camaro GT4.Rs will take the track with Tony Gaples and Lawson Aschenback behind the wheels.
