About McLaren MP4-12C

McLaren cut its teeth on the great racetracks of Europe so, in 2012, when it decided to produce a street-legal car worthy of wearing its name, the whole world knew it was going to be something special. The MP4-12C supercar for 2014 continues to astound its owners and confound long-time greats Ferrari, Bugatti and Lamborghini. The MP4-12C easily ranks among the top ten great exotic cars for 2014, delivering 616 horsepower from its mid-mounted V8 engine for blistering performance both on and off the track. And, British tastes being what they are, McLaren’s MP4-12C is fitted with an elegant interior for two and a price tag befitting its lofty status.

2014 McLaren MP4-12C

McLaren has halted – perhaps temporarily – production of the 2014 MP4-12C to make room for the 650S. However, if you really want one, odds are the Special Operations team can likely build one for you. Nice, huh?

2013 McLaren MP4-12C

2013 marks the second year of production for the MP4-12C coupe and the first for the MP4-12C spider (convertible) variant, which has a retractable hard-top roof. It returns with a more powerful engine – now tuned to make 616 horsepower – revisions to its transmission responsiveness, and expanded paint, leather and wheel options.

2012 McLaren MP4-12C

The McLaren MP4-12C is an all- new car, and the first proper, street-legal McLaren since the fabled, million-dollar-plus F1 of the 1990s (the more recent McLaren SLR was built in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz). The 2012 MP4 uses copious amounts of carbon fiber for its strength and weight-saving properties, and a compact V8 engine that makes almost as much power as the F1’s big V12.

"This is the most complete and refined super car i have ever owned/driven. I currently own a ferrari f430 scuderia, a lamborghini gallardo, a porsche gt2 rs, a noble m600 and this Mclaren, and i must say this is either the best or a close second behind the gt2 rs"

"The McLaren MP4-12C is truly an amazing supercar. You get 99% of what the new McLaren 650 has but at half the price and with less turbo lag than the new 650."
