MP4-12C First Vehicle Designed & Built Entirely By McLaren

What’s in a name? Well, the name ‘MP4’ is derived from the title McLaren Project 4. It has represented all McLaren Formula 1 cars since 1981 when the Project 4 Organization of Ron Dennis’ creation merged with McLaren. The ‘12’ is the rating of the car on the internal McLaren Vehicle Performance Index and the ‘C’ simply refers to Carbon-Fiber. Hence the name McLaren MP4-12C.

In a word, the McLaren MP4-12C is stunning. With its minimal ground clearance, wide athletic stance, deeply etched lines, and dihedral doors, the McLaren MP4-12C was introduced to the world in 2009 and launched in 2011.

Other related models include the McLaren MP4-12C Spyder, a convertible version. In 2014 the McLaren MP4-12C and McLaren MP4-12C Spyder were succeeded by the McLaren 650S.

One of the many things that make the McLaren MP4-12C so unique is the use of a carbon-fiber ‘Monocell’ chassis. Carbon fiber composite can be found throughout the McLaren MP4-12C. It aids in weight reduction and looks amazing.

The MP4-12C, a rear mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive car, is the first vehicle designed and built entirely by the McLaren Group.

At the heart of the McLaren MP4-12C is a longitudinally-mounted 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Despite its small size, the McLaren (M838T) engine is capable of churning out 592hp (7,500 RPM) and 443 lb.-ft. of torque (5,600 RPM). With minimal modifications, the McLaren MP4-12C can be retrofitted to produce 616hp with no increase in harmful exhaust emissions. The engine is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Top speed for the McLaren MP4-12C is 215 mph (Spyder) and the typical 12C can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8-seconds. A road car at heart, the McLaren MP4-12C uses Formula 1 technology such as inside wheel brake steer. This has proven to increase stability during fast cornering.
