Elegant and with Punch

“A track-only racing car built without the restraints of racing regulations, the 12C Can-Am is based on the 12C GT3 racer – but it goes well beyond what the [Federation Internationale de l’Automobile] FIA allows in that division,” describes Nelson Ireson for HighGearMedia.com. McLaren honoured the two New Zealand motorsport legends, Bruce McLaren and Denny Hulme, with the unveiling of the 12C Can-Am Edition in the previews ahead of the car’s debut at the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California this month. “Power comes from a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine rated at up to 630 horses. Packaged in the car’s 2,645.5-pound frame, that’s quite a bit of punch. Shod in Pirelli racing slicks on black satin-finished lightweight forged racing wheels, it should have plenty of grip, too.”
