The annual Goodwood Festival of Speed is one of the most eagerly anticipated auto shows in the world. It doesn’t have the usual expo-like feel attached to other auto shows, but it’s appeal is centered on the fact that only the most exclusive of cars are present in the event.

That and the Goodwood Hill Climb.

Ahead of the public opening of the festival this July, the annual preview day was recently held and one exotic, in particular, made quite an impression: the McLaren MP4-12C GT Can-Am Edition.

Courtesy of Shmee150, the MP4-12C CT Can-Am Edition can be seen performing some ridiculous acceleration runs to complement a steady diet of burnouts performed up the event’s famous hill climb road.

One of the most exclusive MP4-12Cs in existence, the 30-strong GT Can-Am Edition is a true spectacle of the British automaker’s renowned engineering.

Seeing it perform runs like this only adds more credence to its power, speed, and overall exclusivity.

He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
