AUSTIN, Texas — The McLaren 12C GT Can-Am Edition is bound for production with a sticker price of $596,492, McLaren confirmed at the 2012 United States Grand Prix.

The production version of the McLaren 12C GT Can-Am Edition will be limited to 30 units.

McLaren calls the special model the most powerful 12C ever built, with the twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 engine churning out 630 horsepower.

The production version, which will go on sale in March, is virtually identical to the concept vehicle unveiled at the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. The 12C GT Can-Am Edition was conceived as a tribute to Bruce McLaren and Denny Hulme, who successfully raced a series of McLaren models in Can-Am during the 1960s.

The 12C GT Can-Am Edition gets a striking carbon-fiber rear wing.

"This forms part of a unique high-downforce aerodynamic package which has been honed by McLaren Racing using Formula 1 technology and simulation," said McLaren in a statement.

Other details differentiate it from the McLaren 12C GT3 racecar. They include door mirror mounts and covers, engine cover vents, side radiator intake vanes, sill covers and badges.

Rounding out the package are black satin-finished forged lightweight racing alloy wheels.

The cabin gets an FIA-approved roll cage, two bucket seats and a unique McLaren GT steering wheel carried over from the 12C GT3.

Edmunds says: The only downside is that this is a track car. So buyers won't be able to show it off on the highway.
