Video: Chris Harris Drives the McLaren 12C GT3 Racecar

Posted on by  

We all know that Chris Harris often is one of the first to get his hands on the latest and greatest road-going cars in the world. However, he does occasionally get a crack at a racecar. And in the latest episode of Drive he got the chance to drive one of the best race cars in the world, at least according to him: the new McLaren 12C GT3 .

The MP4-12C GT3 is powered by a race-prepped 3.8-liter, V-8 twin-turbo engine featuring McLaren Electronics ECU interfacing with Bosch ABS and Shiftec transmission control units. When compared to the road-going version, the GT3 version received a revised aerodynamics package that includes a new front splitter, front and rear diffuser and a huge, fully adjustable rear wing.

The MP4-12C GT3 is priced at $500,000, and according to Chris, it is the best toy to play with. Check him out testing the new GT3 on a race track in Woking, UK.
