iRacing – MP4-12C Development Preview
The content of iRacing is constantly expanding with the addition of both tracks and cars. A while back the iRacing team announced the licensing deal with McLaren to bring the McLaren MP4-12c GT3 to iRacing, since then the team has been working hard to model the car ready for us iRacers to get our hands on the new content.
Today one of the iRacing staff released a spy shot of the development work on the MP4-12c that has happened so far, the screenshots show a highly detailed model which is currently still being created.
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.
