The third world premiere released by McLaren Automotive at Monterey Car Week 2012 is the McLaren 12C Can-Am Edition Racing Concept. We’ve got a gallery of photos from the event to share with you!

Designed as the ultimate track car, the 12C Can-Am Edition is not subject to the regular racing regulations, despite being based on the 12C GT3 race car. The bodywork features McLaren Orange paint while the roof, door and bumper sections are finished in satin black with carbon fibre accents for the side radiator vanes, wing mirrors and engine cover.

The 12C Can-Am features a revised version of the 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8 engine with an engine re-calibration and optimised cooling system, which allows a power output of up to 630hp, making it the most powerful 12C derivative ever shown. The overall dry weight is just 1,200kg. The aerodynamic package includes a carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber dive planes, and a carbon fiber wing.
