iRacing – McLaren MP4-12C Preview
Recently an iRacing engineer took a special trip to England to visit united autosport in order to scan the much awaited McLaren MP4-12C which is due to be released for iRacing members to enjoy very soon. Today Steve Myers of iRacing has brought us a sneak preview of the recent laser scan data they took of the MP4-12C.
The 3.8-litre McLaren V8 twin turbo ‘M838T’ engine remains in place, but it’s been de- tuned to 500 PS and combined with a new, 80kg lighter six-speed sequential shift gearbox for optimal power and balanced performance. Under the McLaren Orange skin, the 12C GT3 shares the same 75kg carbon MonoCell chassis as the 12C road car. The GT3-ready aero package features a new front splitter, door blade, rear wing, diffuser and louvres in the front fenders.
