McLaren MP4-12C Sprint, The British surprise at Goodwood
|   Tuesday, July 16, 2013
The McLaren guys will exhibit at the Goodwood Festival the version of MP4-12C Sprint which will be positioned between the serial and the circuit GT3model.

To fill the gap between the serial version of the McLaren MP4-12C and the variant destined for the circuit, the MP4-12C GT3, but also to give those present at Goodwood an important premiere, the British manufacturer will expose on the grass of the famous festival the special edition MP4-12C GT Sprint.


As the name suggests, it is a dedicated circuit model, built around the same MonoCell chassis. The power is supplied by a twin-turbo 3.8-liter engine capable of delivering no less than 625 horses, assisted by a box with dual clutch and seven-speeds.

Along with the new resources, the McLaren engineers have modified the suspension to reduce the ride height by 40 mm and make the perfect team with the competition tires. Pirelli slick tires mounted on 19-inch OZ wheels, behind which are hiding carbon ceramic discs.

Inside, the driver interacts with the car through three different modes of operation. These change ESP's intervention, adjusting of dampers and stiffness. Reinforcements required by FIA clamshell seats with six-point seat and air conditioning system are not missing and are extremely easy to use. The carbon fiber inserts are also present in the board, which hosts an informative digitized display.

At an aerodynamic level, the public will meet a new front spoiler, a retouched hood inspired by its older brother, GT3, and a large rear spoiler.
McLaren announced that the MP4-12C GT Sprint will be priced at 200,000 pounds, the equivalent of over 230,000 euros. The production will be limited to only 20 copies per year.
