McLaren GT, the new race car manufacturing arm of the McLaren Group, is set to reveal the all new track-based concept at the Pebble Beach Concours. It is being dubbed the 12C Can-Am Edition, and is poised to shake up the racing world.
The 12C Can-Am Edition sports a striking shade of the McLaren Orange, in tribute to cars of Bruce McLaren and Denny Hulme. Contrasting with the bright orange are the roof, doors, and bumper sections, which are finished in satin black. Also, the wing mirrors, engine cover, and radiator veins feature carbon fiber. The MLaren badges on the front and rear are also finished in varbon fiber. Of course, the Can-Am Edition still has the famous carbon fiber MonoCell chassis as the MP4-12C.
Now on to the goods. The familiar 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 has been tuned and calibrated for optimal performance. After the tuning and cooling system, the Can-Am produces 630hp, making it the most powerl 12C model to date. If the raw power wasn’t enough, this car also only weighs 2,645.5 pounds.
