About: McLaren MP4-12C GT3

mclaren_logoBased on the groundbreaking McLaren MP4-12C road car, the McLaren MP4-12C GT3 marries Formula 1 and innovative road-car technology to create a state-of-the-art racing sports car. The McLaren MP4-12C GT3 utilizes the same carbon MonoCell chassis as the 12C road car, along its 3.8 liter McLaren V8 twin turbo M838T engine, albeit detuned to 500 bhp in accordance with FIA regulations. The 12C GT3 features a six speed Ricardo gearbox and an aero package developed in McLaren’s F1 simulator together with the engine calibration, power steering, spring rates, weight distribution, gear ratios and differential settings.

The MP4-12C GT3 made its competition debut in the British GT Championship at Spa-Francorchamps in July, 2012 and, with 25 models in the hands of a number of private teams, went on to score 19 victories across Europe in a variety of championships that same season, including FIA GT1 World, Blancpain Endurance Series and Avon Tyres British GT as well as the 24 Hours of Barcelona.
