You can now buy a McLaren 12C for what you might spend on a desirable Porsche. Matt Farah over at The Smoking Tire tested a high-mileage example of the company’s late, great mid-engine sports car to see if, well, you should.
If you’re the kind of person that wants to buy a brand new McLaren, you’re looking at shelling out more a third of a million of our finest American freedombucks. However, you’d be a complete dope to do that because examples of the automaker’s spectacular MP4-12C have arguably reached the bottom of their steep…
A rare and valuable 2014 Nissan Sentra was involved in a 3-car accident on Houston’s Southwest Freeway, suffering fairly serious damage. Luckily, no one was seriously injured. Oh, and the other cars were a Rolls-Royce Wraith and a McLaren 12C.
One of the joys of owning a McLaren is that when you have routine warranty work done, the manufacturer picks it up from you, does the work, and drops it off with no problem at all. And to transport it, they even put it on a truck for you. And that’s great, until that truck stalls out on train tracks, and a train…
The McLaren 12C has love-it-or-hate-it looks. Not that it's particularly ugly, it's actually a rather handsome car. Some people just compare it to contemporaries like the Ferrari 458, instead of comparing it to, say, a Toyota Camry. But if you compare it to nothing else, it looks pretty good.
Quite possibly the most absurd car in GT racing the world over, the Bentley Continental GT3 won at Silverstone against a field of Ferraris, Audi R8s, Aston Martins, and McLarens that are not lard-ass luxury coupes for the Paris Hiltons of the world.
It turns out that when it comes to crappy New York City winters, the McLaren 12C has a backup propulsion system – two lovely young ladies.
These days McLaren is doing whatever a British brand can to compete with Ferrari. And you can bet your sweet, speed-loving ass that their 12C isn't about to be outdone by the Ferrari 458 Speciale. No, sir! Not on your life!
Look, if you're going to test out a car built from racecar technology, it should probably be on a racetrack. Because...racecar, or something like it. Here's a McLaren 12C Spider. It'll cause you to make highly awkward facial expressions of glee.
The McLaren MP4-12C is already an unbelievable driving experience and one of the fastest cars money can buy. And for 2014, it's getting more powwwerrrrrr. (Update: Actually not.)
You'd think adding ice to a McLaren 12C would make it cooler. And you'd be wrong. Ice only makes it hotter.
McLaren, the proverbial new kid on the block in terms of supercars, has made a pretty amazing splash over the last couple of years.
The McLaren MP4-12C remains the highest rated vehicle we've reviewed for one major reason: it was built with the driver in mind. This new Can-Am Edition racing "concept" seems to be built with the gentleman driver in mind. We like.
Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton were recently filmed walking through the McLaren Formula 1 team's warehouse of old cars. This video is rumored to be unscripted. Get ready to geek out on some serious Senna.
