McLaren MP4-12C hits GT3

McLaren MP4-12C Signs Up for GT3

McLaren have finally announced a motor sport version of their capable MP4-12C. Built to GT3 specifications, it will face a wide-array of existing supercars on the track including the upcoming 458.

McLaren will likely use 2011 as a development season and sell a competitive package to customer teams in 2012. The new car features an updated aerodynamics package with a large rear wing and prominent fender flares.

This year we visited the opening round of the GT3 championship at Silverstone. Prospeed Competition Porsche beat Callaway’s Corvette by just 10 points to take the 2010 Team’s Championship. For the upcoming 2011 season, there are planned stops in both Russia and China.
