At this weekend's Spa 24 Hours, Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren all announced brand-new racing cars. The Ferrari 296 GT3 represents the biggest departure from the norm. It is the first modern Ferrari GT racer powered by a V6 engine and also the first not built by long-term partners Michelotto. Instead, the twin-turbo machine has been developed together with French specialists Oreca. The spectacular 296 GT3 will debut at the Daytona 24 Hours in January and from 2024 will also be eligible for the FIA WEC and Le Mans.
One of the Ferrari's future rivals will be the Porsche 911 GT3 R. Based on the 992-generation 911, it features a new, 4.2-litre naturally aspirated flat-six engine. Although subject to Balance of Performance, the engine is rated at 551 bhp. With the GTE category being wound down, the 911 GT3 R will be the top-level Porsche GT racer going forward.
The latest competition car created by McLaren Automotive is the Artura Trophy. Sharing many components with the recently launched GT4 car, this new Artura is due to compete in the one-make McLaren Trophy from the 2023 season onwards. Owners of the Artura Trophy can also opt to compete in GT4 races with only a handful of changes.
With the Concept Aceman MINI has offer a first glimpse of a new compact SUV due to enter production in the coming years. It will be the first electric-drive only MINI in the line-up.
