I was going to run a story about the latest M12C McLaren if for no other reason than it provides an excuse to run a photo of a McLaren M8D Can-Am car. However, as I looked over the press release on the McLaren 12C GT Can-Am Edition, I noticed a link to a YouTube video (below). Curious, I went to the site to see what it contained.
I expected rolling footage of the new car — which has an unrestricted version of the engine in the 12C GT3 race car, as well as a passenger seat and an optimized aero package — and maybe some film of the Can-Am car. Unfortunately, it didn’t contain any video of the race car, but the beginning segment reminded me of a program I had forgotten; my idea for a series of commercial-like videos for Lotus.
