|The first McLaren GT race car since the F1 GTR finished production in 1997, the new 12C GT3 is based on the MP4-12C McLaren carbon-fiber chassis production sports car. The 12C GT3 is designed to allow any driver to reach the car’s performance limit. In conjunction with CRS Racing, development has been pursued with the level of detail equal to that of an F1 car. In fact, the 12C borrows technology from F1, such as the steering wheel. Because the road car’s 3.8-liter, V8 twin-turbo has so much power, it has been de-tuned for the GT3 to make it more tractable, leaving it with 539 hp. To save weight and to accommodate race-specific gearing, the 12C also features a Ricardo six-speed sequential-shift gearbox instead of the seven-speed of the road car. McLaren’s goal is to build strong relationships with their buyers, so the car will be a very limited production. Demand for the initial run of 12C GT3’s was high, 20 more are planned for 2013 and 2014. Finally, a McLaren is back in GT3 racing!|
— Official descripion (for #59 variant) 
Based on the McLaren 12C, the 12C GT3 was built to compete in the FIA Group GT3, making it the first McLaren car to compete in sports car racing for the company since the McLaren F1 GTR. It made its competitive debut in 2012 and was replaced in 2015 by the 650S GT3.
Powered by a downtuned variant of the M838T 3.8L (3,799 cc) twin-turbocharged V8 engine, the #59 12C GT3 produces only 493 hp (368 kW) and 369 ft·lb (500 N·m) as a result of homologation. The #59 variant produces 539 hp (402 kW) and 463 ft·lb (628 N·m) instead.
The 12C GT3 uses a new bespoke six-speed gearbox that is 176 lb (80 kg) lighter than the road-going 12C's seven-speed gearbox, developed with Ricardo. The steering wheel is used directly from the MP4-24 F1 car.
The weight for the #60 variant was brought down to 2800 lb (1270 kg), although the #59 variant weighs 2712 lb (1230 kg).
