More about the car

Under the racing livery, the 12C GT3 shares the same 75kg carbon MonoCell chassis as the 12C road car. The GT3-ready aero package features a new front splitter, door blade, rear wing, diffuser and louvres in the front fenders.

Testing in McLaren’s Formula 1 simulator has fine-tuned the engine calibration, power steering, spring rates, weight distribution, gear ratios and differential settings of the MP4-12C GT3.

McLaren GT is a smaller operation than McLaren Racing, but the intention is to apply Formula 1 methodology in every possible area, as shown with the MP4-12C GT3. Formula 1 suppliers past and present have been brought in to help develop the car, including Akebono, Mobil 1, McLaren Electronic Systems, Ricardo and Michelin.
