    15 years since a McLaren F1 GTR famously won the gruelling Le Mans 24 Hours race on its debut, McLaren has begun development work to turn the new MP4-12C into a limited volume of GT3 racing cars. These will be available in time for 2012 GT3 championships.

    With its revolutionary, carbon fibre MonoCell, the 12C is proving to be a natural platform on which to develop a race-winning car.

    I wonder what it brings new to the table, if its another high hp light chassis then it isnt accomplishing anything that a pagani hasnt already. Its going to take a lot to match what the McLaren F1 did in 1994. I am skeptical, seems like another Zenvo to me.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Why another Zenvo? This is a GT3 racecar, Pagani has nothing like that.

    I think that the Zonda R would actually be faster than these GT3 cars. They could make a spec GT3 car easily, based on what they have made so far.

    I don't think the Zonda R would compare to actual race cars around the track.

    Plus, the Zonda really has nothing to do with this but GT3 cars will whoop its ass.
