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.
The car is a much more complicated issue and it demands a much more sophisticated level of repair, service and performance modification than most vehicles. Brenton Brown (the Exotic Car Doc) and his team of factory trained technicians at Forza Tuning and Performance posses the skills and technology needed for top quality McLaren MP4-12C service, repair and modification.

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