British supercar maker may build a limited edition series of just 20 units of a road-going version of the MP4-12C GT3.
McLaren may be bringing the MP4-12C GT3 racer to the streets.
As part of the company's plan to introduced a new product every year (either a new model or a new derivative), the British supercar maker is considering offering a road-going variant of its GT3 racer.
The plan would be to build a limited edition of just 20 units which would sell for about $512,000/€345,000.
According to Inside Line, McLaren Managing Director Antony Sheriff says the automaker "won't over-egg it" like Porsche does will all the variants of the 911, but the report suggests that a road-going variant is in the pipeline.
What kind of power the new variant will feature is an open question since McLaren just announced the specifications for the MP4-12C GT3 racer which actually gets 100 less horses than the standard model (500 PS / 368 kW).
The standard MP4-12C comes with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with an output of 600 PS (441 kW / 592 bhp) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque. 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) comes in at 3.3 seconds (3.1 with special Corsa racing tires) while the 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) sprint is accomplished in 9.1 seconds (8.9 with the Corsa tires). Top speed is 330 km/h (205 mph).
