2012 McLaren MP4-12C by Gemballa Racing Team

After an eventful 2010 year that saw their founder kidnapped and killed in South Africa, 2011 has been a relatively quiet year for German tuning company, Gemballa .

The new brass over at Gemballa is determined to turn over a new leaf and investor, Steffen Korbach, is initiating a new chapter in the company’s history by starting a new Gemballa racing team that hopes to begin competing in the 2012 motor racing season. With a new team in hand, Korbach wanted a car that can be competitive from the get-go and they seemed to have found it in a pair of McLaren MP4-12C GT3 models.

"We deliberately went for the McLaren MP4-12C GT3 for our motor sport commitment, because we think the car has enormous potential to be among the season’s leaders," Korbach said.

Powered by the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine found on the production version, the MP4-12C GT3 comes with a de-tuned output of only 500 horsepower at a limited 7,500rpm. The engine is then mounted to the car’s carbon fiber MonoCell chassis and tuned to racing specifications.

In addition to scoring a pair of MP4-12C GT3s, Korbach also tapped race vet, Sascha Bert, to serve as team manager with the names of prospective drivers scheduled to be announced soon.

UPDATE 12/27/12: The Gemballa Racing Team McLaren MP4-12C is now on sale for an "affordable" price of just €350,000, which is around $460,000 based on current exchange rates.

I can’t find the words to say about it, but to say that McLaren is such the best for the production of racing super cars.

Another destined car to give pleasures and best car concept for supercar. McLaren always surprise us to their new model. And that’s totally awesome.

The engine is then mounted to the car’s carbon fiber MonoCell chassis and tuned to racing specifications. Nicely concept for the best sports car ever made of McLaren.

This car is so aggressive. The style and the designs are obvious a race car and also the door of the car is great.

I saw a lot of versions of Mclaren MP4-12C and in my opinion, it is the most gorgeous among them. The main highlight of the car is the folding door. I also like the color because it really fits to the car.

Oh yeah, I have to say that I’m really impressed with the figure performance of this vehicle. I would say that this is just an awesome production.

I like the aggressiveness of the car. I’m really impressed with the speed performance of the 12C. The deliver power of the v8 is kind of powerful.
