Overview

McLaren GT, the race car manufacturing arm of the McLaren Group, will produce no more than 30 examples of the 12C GT Can-Am Edition. Billed as the ‘ultimate track car’, these will not be subject to the usual racing regulations of the successful 12C GT3 racer on which it is based. Each will be fitted with an unrestricted version of the familiar 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine with a unique engine calibration, and optimized cooling system to increase the power output of up to 630hp, making the 12C GT Can-Am Edition the most powerful 12C produced to date.

The dramatic appearance of the 12C GT Can-Am Edition is dominated by the large carbon fiber rear wing. This forms part of a unique high down-force aerodynamic package which has been honed by McLaren Racing using Formula 1 technology and simulation, and offers an increase in down-force by 30 per cent. Further carbon fiber components enhance the styling of the track car, further differentiating it from the GT3 racing version. These include door mirror mounts and covers, engine cover vents, side radiator intake vanes, sill covers and badges.

Completing the exterior look, the 12C GT Can-Am Edition sits on black satin-finished forged lightweight racing alloy wheels, shod with Pirelli racing tires.
Sharing the same carbon fiber MonoCell chassis as the groundbreaking 12C and 12C Spider, the 12C GT Can-Am Edition is also fitted with a full FIA-approved race-specification roll-cage. Inside the cockpit are two black race seats, complete with full six-point harnesses, and a unique McLaren GT steering wheel carried over from the 12C GT3 race car. The shape and grip of the steering wheel is derived from the McLaren MP4-24 Formula 1 car. An integrated motor-sport air conditioning system is incorporated into the bespoke lightweight carbon fiber dashboard adding a touch of racer comfort.

The car has only been announced and production has not yet commenced therefore specific performance numbers are currently unavailable.
