The GT2 receives electric power steering and a six-speed sequential paddle-shift gearbox. The MC20’s twin-turbocharged V-6 engine will power the GT2-spec version as well. The carbon-fiber central monocoque and lightweight, full composite bodywork have quick-release panels in case they need replacing mid-race.
