This past weekend McLarne GT, the motorsport arm of McLaren Automotive, fielded two McLaren 650S GT3 racers at the Total 24 Hours of Spa. The even wasn’t really a success in terms of race results, but it did provide us with some awesome shots of the race cars in action.

So this post has nothing to do with the actual race and how the two McLaren 650S GT3 of Von Ryan Racing managed to start from the front row and then struggle to get into the top twenty in the end. That doesn’t matter. What we care about is how unbelievably cool these bad boys look doing their thing on the race track, especially when they are bruised and patched up like boxers!

So this is the McLaren 650S GT being merely an eye candy. The McLaren orange #58 650S GT3 was driven by Kevin Estre (FR), Rob Bell (UK), and Shane Van Gisbergen (NZ), and the white #59 650S GT3 by Alvaro Parente (PT), Bruno Senna (BR) and Adrian Quaife-Hobbs (UK).
