The 12C GT Sprint has been designed by McLaren GT, the race car building arm of the McLaren Group, and retains many of features of the 12C road car, including the carbon fibre composite MonoCell chassis.
|McLaren GT was launched as a new brand within the McLaren Group early in 2011. It is based in Woking, UK, at the former home of McLaren Racing. Following a development year, McLaren GT supplied more than 20 examples of the 12C GT3 for racing in Europe in 2012.|
The GT Sprint track-only model signifies the continued development of the 12C model, and bridges the gap between the 12C, which can be used on both road and track, and the racing 12C GT3 and 12C GT Can-Am Edition models.
A range of bespoke options include a CFD (computational fluid dynamics) developed aerodynamic package including carbon fibre rear wing and front splitter, and further lightweight components including a polycarbonate windscreen.
The 12C GT Sprint, finished in heritage McLaren Orange as standard, will make its world premiere at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed motor sport event on 12-14 July at Goodwood, UK.
An initial batch of 20 cars will be delivered in 2013, available from McLaren retailers at a price below £200,000 (excluding tax).
