McLaren 650S GT3 brings a more aggressive look, improved safety and handling

In addition to revealing a bespoke MSO 650S Spider at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, McLaren has also unveiled the new 650S GT3 track only racer, as a follow-up to the 12C GT3 but with a more aggressive carbon fibre body kit that includes an aggressive front splitter, larger air intakes, and a fixed carbon fibre rear wing working in tandem with the large carbon fibre splitter.

In addition to a new P1 supercar inspired look, the 650S GT3 also has increased engine and gearbox rebuild intervals, and re-designed components and systems to reduce parts costs.

The cockpit features a new redesigned and lighter FIA-approved rollcage, providing a greater degree of driver comfort, with increased leg and headroom.

There is also a bespoke motorsport digital dash display, a unique 650S GT3 steering wheel and FIA-approved McLaren GT-developed race seat, fitted with a six-point race harness as standard.

To date, the outgoing 12C GT3 has secured three championship titles, 51 race victories and 71 further podiums with current 12C GT3 owners able to upgrade their cars to the 650S GT3 specification.

Power continues to come from the 3.8-litre McLaren V8 twin turbo ‘M838T’ engine producing around 500 horsepower as controlled by the FIA’s Balance of Performance regulations.

McLaren plans to build around 15 cars for the 2015 season with pricing set at £330,000 plus tax.
