McLaren officially unveils the new MP4-12C
The newly formed company, McLaren Automotive, officially took the wraps off it's new supercar, the MP4-12C. Sporting a McLaren designed and built 600HP/443TQ twin turbo, direct injection V8 mated to a dual clutch gearbox and a curb weight of just 2,800lbs, it should certainly live up to the McLaren name. It will also feature much more comfort than the previous supercar to wear the McLaren name, the F1. Fully adjustable suspension can be tailored to fit the track or the street making it everyday usable..
McLaren hopes to sell over 1,000 cars in 2011 and expects that to grow to over 4,000 in a few years with the addition of more models. The final pricing and performance numbers are expected later this year.
Here is a video from the unveiling.
