McLaren Unveils the 630HP MP4-12C Can-Am GT

First seen as a design study at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, McLaren has announced that the MP4-12C Can-Am GT will now be put into limited production. Developed by McLaren GT, the racing offshoot of the British car firm, the Can-Am GT is a more extreme, track-focused version of its road-going brother. The car’s bodywork is updated with new, lightweight parts and an aggressive new aerodynamic package that increases downforce by 30 percent. Inside is a FIA-approved race spec full rollcage, six-point harnesses, and a racing wheel taken from the McLaren GT3 Racer. The engine boasts a unique calibration that, when coupled with the optimized cooling system, will pump out 630 hp, making it the most powerful MP4-12C to date. Unfortunately, the Can-Am GT is not homologated for road use and will be relegated to just track use. McLaren has stated that just 30 examples of this monster machine will be produced with prices starting at £375,000 GBP (approximately $600,000 USD).
