Track-only McLaren 12C GT Sprint revealed

McLaren GT has unveiled a new track-only high performance variant of the 12C, named the 12C GT Sprint.

The 12C GT Sprint is bridged between the road going 12C and the all-out racing 12C GT3 and 12C GT Can-Am Edition models.

Power comes from the standard 616bhp 3.8-litre twin turbo engine linked to seven speed twin clutch gearbox that includes a unique oil system, and cooling system which features a 12C GT3 developed central front radiator.

The 12C GT Sprint has three unique handling modes which allow the driver to select their preferred damping, roll stiffness and ESP settings.

Other updates include recalibrated PCC suspension system, track-focused carbon ceramic brake discs, lower ride height by 40mm, centre locking 19-inch OZ wheels and racing slick tyres.

Aerodynamic updates include a more aggressive front bumper, GT3-inspired bonnet with radiator exit ducts and front wing louvres.

Interior features an FIA-approved rollcage, integrated fire extinguisher system, lightweight composite racing seat fitted with full six-point harness, a lightweight air-conditioning system and race developed digital display.

The 12C GT Sprint, finished in heritage McLaren Orange as standard, will make its debut this weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

First 20 cars will be delivered in 2013 with pricing set below £200,000 plus taxes.
