McLaren GT3 cars prove popular
The new Mclaren MP4-12C GT3 cars are fast becoming the car of choice for European GT Championship rankings next season.
So far, McLaren GT has already sold half of its batch of 20 allocated GT3 cars for competition use.
The McLarens will be pitted against other entries using high profile GT3 cars including Ferrari, Porsche, lamborghini, Aston Martin, Audi, BMW and AMG Mercedes.
The MP4-12C GT3 features a twin turbocharged 3.8 litre V8 engine with a bespoke 6-speed sequential shift transmission and a unique carbon fibre 'Monocell' chassis and body. The F1 steering wheel from the McLaren MP4-24 F1 car is also used.
Teams including British squad CRS Racing, Gulf Racing and Von Ryan Racing are choosing the racing car based on its performance and strong signs of reliability during testing.
McLaren GT's Andrew Kirkaldy said: "We're delighted with the strong interest. We want to have one MP4-12C GT3 racing in every major European GT category next year."
