McLaren has unveiled the track-only 2014 McLaren 12C GT Sprint ahead of its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.

It is built around the same lightweight carbon MonoCell chassis, and with developments to systems such as ProActive Chassis Control, (PCC), Brake Steer and the McLaren Airbrake.

It is powered by the twin-turbo 3.8-liter engine delivering 625 HP (459 kW) mated to a seven-speed twin-clutch gearbox. The PCC suspension system has been tuned and recalibrated to suit the cars lower ride height and racing slick tyres.

The 2014 12C GT Sprint has three unique handling modes which allow the driver to select their preferred damping, roll stiffness and ESP settings. It features optimised aerodynamic and cooling upgrades. It gets an aggressive front bumber, GT3-inspired bonnet with radiator exit ducts and front wing louvers.

It is fitted with track-focused braking system with carbon ceramic (CCM) brake discs sitting behind the 19-inch center-locking OZ alloy wheels wrapped around in Pirelli racing slick tires.

Inside the cabin, it comes with an FIA-approved rollcage and integrated fire extinguisher system. It also has a fully adjustable HANS-approved, lightweight composite racing seat with full six-point harness, with a lightweight air-conditioning system. A carbon fibre dash houses the race developed digital display and key vehicle controls.

Bespoke options include carbon fibre rear wing and front splitter, and further lightweight components including a polycarbonate windscreen.

An initial batch of 20 cars will be delivered in 2013, with a price point below GBP £200,000 (without taxes and duties).
