McLaren has unveiled its new 650S GT3 track weapon at this week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Teased with a single shadowy image earlier in the week, the new racer is of course based on the company’s latest supercar, the 650S.
The British supercar and racing company’s latest creation is the work of its GT arm, developed to the FIA’s racing standards for a track-only application.
The 650S supercar’s lightweight carbon-fibre Monocell chassis remains the centrepiece of the GT3, but McLaren GT has added a host of racing tricks to the package.
There’s now a new splitter up front beneath enlarged intakes, and fat new carbon-fibre guards and aero parts can also be seen through the profile.
A huge fixed wing takes pride of place at the rear, above high-set guards new diffuser setup.
The 650S GT3 gets a 52mm wider track than its roadgoing sibling, and a new racing suspension and brake package is also featured.
Meeting FIA standards, power is provided by a race-tuned version of McLaren’s 3.8 litre twin-turbo V8, producing 367kW - the same output as the earlier 12C GT3.
The 650S GT3 will go on sale in Europe in the coming months from £330,000, but McLaren will also offer an upgrade pack for 12C GT3 owners to upgrade their racer to 650S standard.
