Ever Heard The Term “Homologation Special?” This Is What It Means

How many times have you heard the saying “racecar for the road?” It’s usually just that—a saying—because racing cars are so much faster and more focused than cars certified for street use. Even hypercars such as the McLaren Senna won’t quite stack up against something like the ostensibly “lesser” 650S GT3. But some streetable metal is at least race bred—or, more accurately, bred to race, and you can thank the homologation clause in certain racing regulations for some of the sportiest cars to ever hit the road.
