McLaren MP4-12C GT3 Promo Video: Competition Debut
The GT3 race car is built around a carbon fiber MonoCell chassis with aluminum front and rear frames and bespoke carbon body panels. Power comes from a 3.8-liter V8 twin turbo McLaren M838T, though output varies from series to series.
Over the standard road car, obvious aerodynamic improvements include front and rear diffuser, front splitter, dive planes and adjustable rear wing.
“Production of the 12C GT3 has been deliberately limited, as McLaren GT plans to develop close relationships and provide ongoing engineering support to its customers racing in 2012 and beyond. This limited production run of race cars will be distributed among private owners and race teams for racing in Europe next year,” the automaker said in a statement made in October 2011.
