McLaren is bringing an especially patriotic MP4-12C GT3 to Goodwood this year.
Earlier this month McLaren announced that they'll be giving their MP4-12C a modest power boost of 25 horsepower in response to customer feedback. Even though 600hp was a lot, new owners felt that their cars needed some fine tuning such as more power, lighter paddle shifters and an improved engine note. McLaren listened and has delivered. Now with a total of 625hp, the updated and improved MP4-12C will be making its official debut this weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
In addition to the previously mentioned updates, McLaren points out that there's now a range of styling options available such as Volcano Yellow paint, an exclusive interior trim comprised of perforated leather and Alcantara, and a new diamond cut finish for multiple wheel designs. At last year's Goodwood, the MP4-12C GT3 race car was unveiled and this year the automaker will also be displaying a bespoke livery version designed by McLaren Racing's own graphic design team. The car will feature a Union Jack wrap and in another form of British patriotism, it's being called the "Great" 12C GT3.
This is being done in support of the Great campaign that was launched this year by the Prime Minister's Office and the Department for Culture, Media, and Sport.
