Independent artist designs McLaren MP4-12C GTR

Jon Sibal is a quite well known independent artist that has in the past worked on a bunch of very interesting projects. His latest project consists of a series of renderings in which we can see his idea of how the McLaren MP4-12C GTR would look like. Jon admitted he is a big fan of the Gordon Murray design for the McLaren F1 and the GTR version that followed afterwards (you can see those photos below too). Thus, what Jon was really trying to do is to catch the essence of the McLaren F1 GTR done by Gordon Murray and put it in a GTR version of the yet to be launched McLaren MP4-12C .

The independent artist rendered a number of versions of the McLaren MP4-12C with different popular logo designs, including the GULF logo design, the LARK logo design, the Tokyo Ueno Clinic logo design, the Chassis ``10R`` logo design, the Harrods logo design, the FINA logo design as well as the Marlboro logo design. Practically, the car looks ready for FIA GT Championship or other popular series, having already commercials on it. Jon Sibal also said that he will continue his work with a Long Tail version of the McLaren MP4-12C GTR, as homage to the McLaren F1 GTR 1997 Long Tail.

On his website, Jon Sibal said that ``I gave the car wider fenders to house four OZ wheels (with some lip) the previous F1 GTR ran back in the days``. He continued by saying that ``I also added splitters in the front and rocker panels to keep the air moving underneath as fast and clean as possible``.

Take a look at the photos below to see the work done by Jon Sibal.
