Sensational, time less, elegant, poised, contemporary. All words I think I could and would happily use to describe the new McLaren MP4-12C.
McLaren has one of the most historically relevant and successful pasts in terms of Motorsport Heritage and has managed to create history before when it comes to the creation of legendary road cars. Gordan Murray’s epic Mclaren F1 will go down in history as a pioneering vehicle that has no equal! Even to this day it might have been pipped to a top speed record by the technical tour de force encapsulated in a Bugatti body; the Veyron, however the F1 still stands with its head held high. From a relevance and a technical stand point it eats the Veyron alive and it is this out look and mission that McLaren are clearly heading again with the MP4-12C. Lightweight, compact, rigid, timeless design and speed.
I love listening to people like Anthony Sherriff the Global Automotive Managing Director for McLaren Automotive discussing product with so much passion – I hope you enjoy this 3 minute video as much as I did.
