Salon Privé London 2012: McLaren presents the MP4-12C.
The story of the McLaren MP4-12C is one of revolution. Free from the constraints of convention and empowered by the skills gained from decades spent at the pinnacle of Formula One™, we knew that to create the world's first no-compromise sports car we had to form a visionary new sports car company.
The first and most important decision we made was to equip our team of designers and engineers with the ultimate creative resource: a clean sheet of paper. Underpinned by considerable investment, some of the brightest and bravest minds in the automotive industry set to work on creating a sports car like no other.
Designed from scratch around the driver, with nothing carried over from an existing car, the 12C has a unique breadth of ability. Carbon fibre construction ensures it is both light and strong. A bespoke, small-capacity, twin-turbo V8 engine delivers tremendous power and outstanding efficiency. Radical thinking and intelligent design have minimised exterior dimensions and maximised interior space, while a revolutionary suspension system delivers exhilarating dynamism and exceptional ride comfort.
The innovative design of the 12C not only offers a truly groundbreaking combination of performance, roll control and grip, but also delivers ride comfort more akin to that of an executive saloon car.
A true sports car should feel like it was designed specifically for whatever road or track you happen to be on. And the 12C delivers this. In short, it is 'Pure McLaren'. We look forward to showing you the 12C in detail at Salon Privé 2012.
