If the epitome of an ideal woman is a combination of style, grace, elegance, power, mystique and dangerous beauty – well meet McLaren MP4-12C. This sexy ride should be the next Jame’s Bond vehicle of choice when saving the world. The McLaren Group recently launched its latest arsenal in which the new sports car will set the new standards in the world of luxury high-performance sports cars. Not that it’s meant to replace the McLaren F1, the new model is a testament to the McLaren Group’s business savvy of bringing a new force to the market to compete with rivals Ferrari and Lamborghini. If anything, the concept is the younger cousin to the F1 family. The MP4-12C makes use of McLaren’s legendary Formula 1 racing components, can accelerate from 0 to 60mph in less than 3.5 seconds, its top speeds reaches up to 200 mph, and has a light weight carbon-fiber chassis which explains how the MP4-12C can pick up that much speed and cornering performance. It made its first debut at the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance, with a starting price tag of between $225,000 to $250,000. The website itself is nothing short than amazing as it truly reflects the jaw-dropping beauty and performance of the McLaren MP4-12C. The photo gallery truly does it justice.
So, if you ever plan on driving the car in the deserts of Nevada – go ahead. It’s been tested in the extreme desert heats of Qatar to ensure performance and durability. Feel smug once you get this baby.
