Video: McLaren MP4-12C GT3 Racer

Motorsport

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.
