There aren't many names more closely associated with racing than MacLaren, but since the mighty F1 was retired they have been sorely missed in GT3 racing. The MP4-12C will change all of that. Powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8, the MP4-12C has 600 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque. That power is sent through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and allows the MP4-12C to get to 62mph in just 3.8 seconds.
A race prepped MP4-12C GT3 will be taking part in the 2012 European FIA GT3 Series. There's no doubt that quite a few fans of the old F1 will be holding their breath watching to see if this new McLaren GT3 car can live up to legacy of the F1.
