We are proud to present for sale this remarkable example of a McLaren MP4-12C. Revealed in 2009 and launched in 2011, the 12C was the car that the brand returned to the road car market with to rival the likes of the Ferrari 458 Italia and Porsche 911 Turbo S.
With the legendary McLaren F1 being the previous road car the marque produced in the 1990’s, the 12C had lots expected from it, and that was certainly delivered. Presented with the very latest technology at the time along with game-changing aerodynamics, the car offers serious performance when in combination with the 3.6 Litre twin-turbo V8 engine, which later was the engine used for the rest of the McLaren models in the future.
The carbon fibre tub in the car was revolutionary, making the car super light but also very strong. The cabin is also completely unique compared to any other brands, offering a clean but minimalistic design with a slim central screen and no buttons on the steering wheel, making you feel immersed in driving and totally engaged with the car.
This 12C is finished in Fire Black Metallic paintwork with the most amazing gold/red fleck, which looks especially amazing when the sunlight hits it, in combination with those iconic diamond-cut alloys and McLaren Orange brake calipers. The car has had just two owners in its life, with the second owner being McLaren Test Driver and British GT racing driver, Joe Osborne. So the car has been in great care, showing McLaren history including two services at the McLaren Technology Centre and certainly drives as well as it looks.
