McLaren MP4-12C

Published August 6th, 2013

I was lucky enough to be able to shoot the new McLaren MP4-12C in August 2013 and I relished every moment of it.

The car itself comes with a staggering price tag "starting from £168500 or roughly $250000. You can imagine I was rather careful around the car!

A little technical blurb to follow but please enjoy the photos and if you have one of these in the real world I would love to hear how the car performs.

**The MP4-12C features a carbon fibre composite chassis, and is powered by a mid-mounted McLaren M838T 3.8-litre V8, twin-turbo engine developing approximately 616 bhp (459 kW; 625 PS) and around 443 lb·ft (601 N·m) of torque. The car makes use of Formula 1-sourced technologies such as "brake steer",[4] where the inside rear wheel is braked during fast cornering to reduce understeer. Power is transmitted to the wheels through a seven-speed seamless Shift dual-clutch gearbox.

The MP4-12C is largely considered one of the most distinguished sports cars available
