McLaren MP4-12C Supercar
Lighter greener and more powerful than either the Ferrari 458 or Mercedes SLS
Lighter greener and more powerful than either the Ferrari 458 or Mercedes SLS the McLaren MP4-12C supercar can accelerate from 0-124 mph in less than ten seconds.
There have been 1600 genuine orders already made for the McLaren MP4-12C; it comes with a seven speed twin clutch gearbox, switchable driving modes, seven inch touch screen, electric diff and F1 type airbrake. The engine is a 3.8 litre twin turbo V8 with 592bhp and a maximum speed of 200 mph.
A million test miles have already been completed on the McLaren MP4-12C and the McLaren organisation is gearing up to sell the first in early 2011 for a price of £175,000. McLaren boss Ron Dennis said “this is not a volume car, this is simply the most exclusive motoring experience money can buy”. Like every McLaren car the McLaren MP4-12C is likely to go up in price rather than down.
