McLaren is making its way back into the sports racing scene with the releas of their first GT qualifying road car, the McLaren MP4-12C GT3. The car takes it styling cues from the legendary McLaren F1 GTR.
The MP4-12C GT3 is based on the legendary MP4-12C sports car and has been adapted by engineers from McLaren so the carbon fiber chassis can withstand the sustained speed and performance needed for professional racing. The exterior is much more imposing than the regular MP4-12C and the interior is bare in order to save weight.
These models will be designed and developed by McLaren and CRS Racing, and should make their first racing debut in the 2012 European FIA GT3 Series.
