McLaren has revealed its track-only 650S Sprint, ahead of a global debut at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.

The new model is based on the 650S Coupe, and comes hot on the heels of the 650S GT3 which broke ground at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in June.

The Sprint gets a sharpened ‘Brake Steer’ system, improved aerodynamics and a race set-up for the ProActive Chassis Control (PCC), while sharing some of the GT3’s racing goodies.

McLaren says despite the track-focused modifications which provide a “more engaging GT racing experience, the Sprint hasn’t lost the “refinement and balance found in the road car”.

The 3.8 litre twin-turbo V8 from the road-going 650S is unchanged - producing 478kW of power and 678Nm of torque – but McLaren has altered the calibration between engine and transmission for the Sprint.

The ‘regular’ 650S will hit 100km/h from rest in 3.0 seconds on its way to 200km/h in just 8.4 seconds. McLaren is yet to reveal if all its tweaks result in faster acceleration times for the Sprint.

Inside, the Sprint is a ‘stripped-out’ affair with an FIA-approved roll-cage, HANS-approved racing seat with six-point harness and no doubt driver-approved air conditioning system.

Shared with the GT3 are a motorsport fuel ‘bag’ in place of a tank, a larger front radiator and front wing louvres along with an on-board air jacking system.

The Sprint gets a lower ride-height, upgraded brakes and 19-inch centre-locked wheels wearing Pirelli slick or wet weather rubber.

The 2015 McLaren 650S Sprint is priced from £198,000 (AU$359,100) for UK customers, and will be joined by the new P1 GTR at Pebble Beach.
