McLaren 12C GT Sprint 04

This may not be as hardcore as the all-out McLaren 12C GT3 and 12C GT Can-Am Edition, but it still has the capability to melt your face when let loose on the track. Named 12C GT Sprint, the track-only supercar is built by its performance arm, McLaren GT. 

With 616 hp on tap from the 3.8-litre V8 twin turbo, the 12C GT Sprint keeps itself together on the track with the help of carbon fibre MonoCell Chassis, complemented by ProActive Chassis Control (PCC), Brake Steer and McLaren Airbrake. Handling is further improvised by a lowered stance (by 40 mm) and three handling modes that offer different dampings, roll stiffness and ESP setups.

The car then gets centre-locking 19-inch OZ wheels wrapped in Pirelli slicks and, an on-board air jacking system. Braking power is provided by large carbon ceramic brakes.

Aesthetics-wise, the 12C GT features an aggressive front bumper, GT3-inspired bonnet, front wing louvres, carbon fibre rear wing and front splitter as well as a polycarbonate windscreen. Going into the air-conditioned cockpit, it has FIA-approved rollcage and an integrated fire extinguisher system. The driver will find himself comfortable in a fully adjustable HANS-approved, lightweight composite racing seat, strapped with a full six-point harness.

The new 12C GT Sprint will have a ‘meet-and-greet’ session with the public at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
