The McLaren MP4-12C, later known simply as the McLaren 12C, is a sports car designed and manufactured by McLaren Automotive. It is the first ever production car wholly designed and built by McLaren, and their first production road car produced since the McLaren F1, which ended production in 1998. The car's final design was unveiled in September 2009 and launched in mid-2011.
The MP4-12C features a carbon fiber composite chassis, and is powered by a longitudinally-mounted Rear mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout McLaren M838T 3.8 L; 231.8 cu in (3,799 cc) twin-turbocharged V8 engine, developing approximately 600 PS (592 bhp; 441 kW) at 7500 rpm and around 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque at 5600 rpm. The car makes use of Formula 1-sourced technologies such as "brake steer", where the inside rear wheel is braked during fast cornering to reduce understeer. Power is transmitted to the wheels through a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. It is fairly consuming at 11.7l/100km, which is not a lot for a supercar like this one. This is a great model worth checking out.
