Dutch firm Hansen has released details for its new GT-R track car that’s set to be launched later in the year as well as news of a milder GT version designed for road use. The GT-R is a mid-engined two-seater featuring a semi-monocoque chassis constructed from aluminum, steel and composite materials to reduce weight while maintaining high torsional stiffness.

Body panels are made from carbon fiber and with a window also made from plastic the entire vehicle weighs in at just over 2,400 pounds. The suspension system features independent front and rear double wishbones with anti-roll springs and dampers, and the brakes include six-piston aluminum alloy calipers up front and a four-piston setup in the back.

Power comes from a 5.0-liter V10 developing 500 horsepower. It is mated to a 6-speed gearbox sending drive to the rear wheels. Part of the design goal for the Hansen GT-R was to create a car with no electronic aids and with as little compromises as possible. The first prototype should be completed by the end of the year and should be competing in its first circuit races by then.
