Video: McLaren MP4-12C GT3 proves its a real flame thrower

During the qualifying session at the 2012 Blancpain Endurance Series at Monza Circuit, there were a few McLaren MP4-12C GT3 models that definitely earned the right to be called Hell on Wheels and Youtube user 19Bozzy92 was there to witness it. A few MP4-12C GT3 models were actually able to throw out flames during their high speed run. Check out the video to see what an MP4-12C can really do when pushed to its limit!

As a reminder, McLaren has announced that a total of 25 new MP4-12C GT3 cars will race across Europe in the FIA GT1 World Championship in 2012. The GT3 version will be powered by the same 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 as found in the standard model, but tuned to racing specifications. The exterior was also provide with a new aerodynamic package in compliance with GT3 regulations, incorporating a new front splitter, door blade, rear wing, diffuser, and louvers in the front fenders.

It’s a clear boasting of what it can do. I’d rather rely on its performance though.

If the sole point of this flame thrower is for showing off, I’d rather not have it as it looks quite hazardous.

Isn’t that dangerous? As much as I’d like to be impressed, there’s something off about it. Like, those flame throwers don’t look good on them.
