McLaren GT Sprint will cost $315,000

McLaren is offering up some details on its latest car called the GT Sprint. The car was originally seen at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and uses the 3.8 L 660 hp V-8 engine and dual-clutch transmission from the standard version of the car.

After starting with the base package, McLaren removes everything from the car that's unnecessary such as creature comforts like power windows and more. The car does keep the AC system so drivers can enjoy the vehicle on hot days.

The GT suspension is 40 mm lower than standard versions of the car and the car has racing seats with six point racing harnesses. The car will cost about $315,000.
