McLaren GT will build 30 units of its Can-Am track-special, which pays tribute to the company’s founder Bruce McLaren and legendary racer Denny Hulme.
Ever since the third-generation MX-5 appeared in 2005, we’ve been pleading with Mazda to build one worthy of being the hot-hatch killer that so typified its 1989 forbearer.
When Simraceway announced their landmark agreement with McLaren earlier this month, we decided to delve a little deeper behind the story before sharing our thoughts.

Special Editions. Sometimes they’re really special, whilst at other times it’s just a way of freshening up a familiar model which has been on sale for a few years.
