13:30McLaren GT is to produce the 12C GT Sprint
The track-only model signifies the continued development of the 12C
model, and bridges the gap between the 12C, itself fully accomplished on
both road and track, and the all-out racing 12C GT3 and 12C GT Can-Am
Edition models. It has been designed and developed by McLaren GT, the
race car building arm of the McLaren Group, and retains many of the
unique systems from the 12C road car, on which it is based.
Built around the lightweight carbon fibre MonoCell chassis, and with
developments to systems such as ProActive Chassis Control, (PCC), Brake
Steer and the McLaren Airbrake, the latest model from McLaren GT has
been honed to deliver a more track-focused GT racing experience whilst
retaining the balance and precise characteristics much praised in the
Generating 625PS, the optimised 3.8-litre twin turbo engine includes a
unique oil system, and cooling system which features a 12C GT3
developed central front radiator. The GT Sprint retains the 12C’s seven
speed twin clutch gearbox.
The PCC suspension system has been tuned and recalibrated to suit the
cars lower ride height and racing slick tyres, providing a firmer and
more circuit-orientated setup. The 12C GT Sprint has three unique
handling modes which allow the driver to select their preferred damping,
roll stiffness and ESP settings.
Externally, the 12C GT Sprint features optimised aerodynamic and
cooling upgrades. At the front is a more aggressive front bumper,
GT3-inspired bonnet with radiator exit ducts and front wing louvres.
Lowered by 40 mm, the 12C GT Sprint is fitted with track-focused braking
system with carbon ceramic (CCM) brake discs. Tyre changes are made
easier through an on-board air jacking system and centre-locking 19-inch
OZ wheels, shod with Pirelli racing slick tyres.
Inside the cabin, the 12C GT Sprint is fitted with an FIA-approved
rollcage and integrated fire extinguisher system. A fully adjustable
HANS-approved, lightweight composite racing seat fitted with full
six-point harness provides the optimum driving position, while an
air-conditioning system is retained, albeit a lightweight version,
offering added comfort.
A carbon fibre dash houses the race developed digital display and key
vehicle controls which interface with a McLaren GT developed steering
Further enhancements are available through a range of bespoke options
including a CFD (computational fluid dynamics) developed aerodynamic
package including carbon fibre rear wing and front splitter, and further
lightweight components including a polycarbonate windscreen.
The 12C GT Sprint, finished in heritage McLaren Orange as standard,
will make its world premiere at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
