McLaren has announced plans to introduce the track-focused 650S Sprint at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Described as a "stripped-out racer," the 650S Sprint is based on the 650S Coupe but features a GT3-inspired exterior with a ventilated hood, revised air intakes and a prominent rear wing. The model also has a track-tuned suspension, an improved Brake Steer system and 19-inch center-locking racing wheels with Pirelli tires. There's even an onboard air jacking system for lightening quick tire changes.

The track-focused theme continues in the cabin as it has been stripped of almost all non-essential equipment. Designers then added an FIA-approved roll cage, an integrated fire extinguisher system and a carbon fiber racing seat with a six-point harness.

The twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine carries over from the standard model but it has a "unique engine and transmission calibration to further enhance on-track drivability and driver engagement." There's no word on specifications but the standard engine develops 650 PS (478 kW) and 678 Nm (500 lb-ft) of torque. This allows the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.0 seconds before hitting a top speed of 333 km/h (207 mph).

The McLaren 650S Sprint is currently available to order and pricing starts at £198,000 (excluding taxes).
