McLaren reveals details of new GT Sprint

McLaren has revealed more details of its new 12C GT Sprint (2013) model, which is set to be released later this year, carmagazine.co.uk reports.  

Buyers with deep pockets will be able to get their hands on the 616bhp supercar when it is made available sometime before the end of 2013, and although specific details on price haven't yet been revealed, McLaren says it will be "below £200,000".

Any prospective owners will have to be quick, however, as the first run will only comprise of 20 units.

In a bid to make the track-going version a little different to its workaday, non-GT version, McLaren has added a new oil and cooling system, re-tuned the PCC suspension so the car sits 40mm lower, fitted Pirelli racing tyres and enabled drivers to pick out of three different handling modes. It also has a more aggressive front bumper, larger radiator exit ducts and front wing louvres, not to mention carbon ceramic brake discs.

The car itself would be something of an expensive toy for any prospective buyer, autocar.co.uk claims, as all the amendments would mean it isn't road legal, so can only be driven on the tracks. This needn't stop owners from fitting vehicle tracking systems, however, as they can offer information on just how much a driver managed to squeeze out of every track day session. 

Despite the high-end, top-of-the-range features, the one which has set most tongues wagging is a rather everyday component: air conditioning. Unlike most other track cars - but just like countless new road-legal ones - the GT Sprint is fitted with a full air conditioning system, albeit a high-tech, very lightweight system.
