McLaren 12C GT Can-Am Edition the Ultimate Track Car

McLaren GT have announced that will they be putting the stunning 12C GT Can-Am into production and making a limited number of 30 the track focused 12C GT following the successful premiere of the one-off design study at at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance earlier this summer. The limited edition track-special pays tribute to Bruce McLaren and Denny Hulme who successfully raced a series of McLaren models in the Can-Am series, claiming a string of championships between them for Bruce McLaren Racing.

Andrew Kirkaldy, Managing Director of McLaren GT explained: ‘The 12C Can-Am Edition concept shown at Pebble Beach earlier this year was purely that, a one-off design study. However, the reaction and response following the unveil was remarkable. It is a real testament to the performance and results of the McLaren GT customer teams this year, still only in the debut competitive season, that there is such a strong demand for this type of track-day special.’

Each will be fitted with an unrestricted version of the familiar 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine with a unique engine calibration, and optimised 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. From the huge carbon fibre rear wing to the satin polished lightweight alloys  the whole package that McLaren are offering is a true blood racing machine using F1 racing technology and full simulation software to increase the downforce by 30% on this limited edition. Not only do you get the car when you purchase the 12C GT but you get a full support team every time you turn up at the track which shows you how serious this machine is.
