The track only McLaren GT Sprint, revealed in July, will cost £195,000 plus VAT, making it £234,000 in the UK.
Back in July, McLaren revealed the 12C GT Sprint – and debuted it at the Goodwood Festival of Speed – a track only 12C that fills a gap between the regular road car and the 12C GT3 and Can Am. And now we have more details, and a price.
McLaren intimated in July that the 12C GT Sprint would cost ‘under £200k’, and indeed it does. But the price is actually £195k plus VAT, making the 12C GT Sprint nearly £60k more than the road-going version.
With the same 616bhp 3.8 litre twin-turbo engine as the road-going 12C, the GT Sprint gets new cooling systems for oil and water, new chassis control mapped for its lower ride height as well as stuff from the GT3 including a roll cage and digital dash.
To make the 12C GT Sprint stickier McLaren has fitted Pirelli slicks and to make sure it stops it also gets ceramic brakes optimised for track use. There are also a number of aerodynamic tweaks borrowed from the GT3.
McLaren are only going to build 20 12C GT Sprints and they are now open to orders. The default colour is McLaren’s trademark orange, but if you want to spend a bit more McLaren will paint it any colour you want.
