The sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro will be proving to be quite the versatile racing platform. There are already versions for Funny Car drag racing as well as for NASCAR competition, as well as today we have official word which Chevy has created the Camaro GT4.R, a racer made for entry into GTS- as well as GT4-class racing, specifically the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge GS as well as the Pirelli World Challenge GTS.

Based on the Camaro ZL1, the GT4.R was created with Chevrolet Racing technical partner Pratt & Miller Engineering. Under the hood will be a race-tuned 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 tiny-block, which will be mated to a six-speed Xtrac transmission with paddle shifters. The GT4.R also has an Xtrac racing limited-slip differential, two-way adjustable Ohlins Racing coil-over dampers, as well as adjustable ABS with Brembo six-piston aluminum monoblock calipers up front. Downforce as well as aerodynamics were enhanced having a large rear wing as well as a brand new front end having a splitter as well as dive planes.

Fresh off his victory inside Rolex 24 at Daytona inside Cadillac DPi-V.R, Jeff Gordon stirred some more interest around the Camaro GT4.R by liking Team Chevy’s Facebook post as well as posting about the automobile on both Facebook as well as Twitter with the captions, “Just found the next race car I want to drive.”

Whether which’s a real possibility or not will be yet to be seen. If he does, though, This particular will be what he’ll be hearing when he’s ripping up the track, according to Chevy:
