Autocar took the new McLaren MP4-12C GT3 out for a spin on the race track. Andrew Frankel takes to the track to sample the raw delights of McLaren’s endurance racer. Check the video to see what the British magazine things about the famous race car and let us know if you agree with them!
The MP4-12C GT3 is powered by the same 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 as found in the standard model, but tuned to racing specifications. The engine is mated to a 7-speed SSG dual-clutch Graziano transmission operated by a bespoke paddle-shift system developed specifically for racing.
Compared to the standard MP4-12C, the GT3 version has received a new aerodynamics package in compliance with GT3 regulations, incorporating a new front splitter, door blade, rear wing, diffuser, and louvers in the front fenders.
