McLaren MP4-12C

This is one press launch that I think both Kurt or myself would have donated a body part to have gotten an invite to. The new McLaren MP4-12C utilizes a mid-mounted 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 that pumps out 592 bhp and around 443 lb-ft of torque. It also weighs under 3000 lbs, will rocket from 0-60 mph in just a tick over 3.1 seconds, and with the right tires will also run the quarter mile in under 11 seconds. Ladies and gentlemen, if those numbers don’t get your heart rate up then there is something seriously wrong with you. To top it all off, McLaren enlisted the help of British Formula One Driver Jensen Button so the journalists would get a proper feeling of exactly what the McLaren MP4-12C was capable of. Cars like this are in a class all their own and push the limits of suspension and tire technology. As with all things exotic, the McLaren MP4-12C will not be cheap, in fact its starting price will be well over 200K for the U.S. market. This places it firmly in line with offerings from Ferrari and Lamborghini. Click through for the video.
