More information on this new addition to the McLaren Automotive range will be released in the next few days when ordering commences across the company’s network of retailers.

McLaren Automotive has launched a full range of high performance sports cars manufactured at the new McLaren Production Centre. The first model in the range is the MP4-12C. Other models and derivatives will join the 12C in this range, all of them inheriting the technology and know-how developed in Formula 1, with the main objectives being energy efficiency and high performance.

These aims are partly achieved by the one-piece moulded carbon chassis, using a new manufacturing process. All McLaren models are based on this technology.
