McLaren has introduced a production version of its 12C GT Can-Am Edition, limited to 30 units.

McLaren plans on making 30 units of its 12C GT Can-Am Edition. Production starts in March 2013 and each car costs 375,000 GBP.

Based on the concept shown at this year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, Mclaren is offering a track-only racing version of the MP4-12C. Power comes from the familiar V8 3.8-liter twin-turbo engine but this is an unrestricted version and has received an optimized cooling system and special calibration. As a result, the engine is capable of producing 630 hp (470 kW).

The new aerodynamic package brings a huge rear carbon fiber wing that increases downforce by 30 percent. Other carbon fiber parts include the engine cover vents, door mirror mounts and covers, sill covers and side radiator intake vanes.

Inside it gets an FIA-approved race-spec rollcage with two black race seats and six-point harnesses. The steering wheel is borrowed from the GT3 version, while the built-in air conditioning system keeps the driver cool while racing.

Further details are available in the attached press release.
