If you attended Autosport International 2014, then McLaren was the place to go. On display from the British manufacturer were a couple of stunning McLaren 12C Spiders as well as a very rare McLaren 12C GT Sprint.

Also displayed was this one-off McLaren 12C police car for the British police force. This unique police cruiser would be more than capable of outrunning the vast majority of cars in the U.K. Unfortunately however, the car is simply being used for publicity and is on loan from a local McLaren dealer.

As for the 12C GT Sprint, it is powered by an M838T 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 powerplant which generates 625 hp coupled to a seven speed twin clutch gearbox. The car retains features of the road car including brake steer and the McLaren air brake, yet a recalibrated Proactive Chassis Control (PCC) system and optimised oil and cooling systems will make the car feel significantly different.

There are of course many other changes and owners will pay £195,000 including taxes and duties for their cars. The first car was recently delivered to UAE racing team Dragon Racing 88 and a second will be headed to an undisclosed Swiss owner soon.

Completing the McLaren display was a former Vodafone McLaren-Mercedes Formula One car!
