McLaren 12C GT Sprint announced for Goodwood image

The British based automaker McLaren has recently announced its plans to introduce a track only 12C GT Sprint this weekend, during the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

McLaren has big plans for its models and besides pulling the wraps off the 12C Spider and developing the impressive P1, the company is also working on a new supercar, the so-called 12C GT Sprint. The model in question will fill the gap between the MP4-12C and the 12C GT3, riding on the same carbon MonoCell chassis. The 12C GT Sprint is allowing drivers to select three unique handling mode, damping settings, roll stiffness and desired ESP.

The model in question is also getting a new front bumper, a GT3-inspired hood, track-spec carbon ceramic brake discs, 19-inch OZ alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli racing slicks, a FIA compliant rollcage, a racing seat with six-point harness, a lighter air conditioning system, a carbon fiber dashboard, race-spec digital display and much more. Power is still being provided by a 3.8 liter unit producing 625 HP (459 kW), mated to a seven-speed twin clutch transmission. Prices for the model will be set at just under 200,000 GBP, without taxes, and 20 units will be made this year.
