McLaren MP4-12C, rolls off the tongue, doesn't it? That's the formal name of the $250,000, 200 MPH+, seven-speed, gull-wing-doored, maybe-Mercedes-V8-powered super car once known as the P11. We'll be getting more details tomorrow, and hopefully a first look. [TimesOnline]

It doesn't look like it's going to be gullwinged from the door shutline. I could be wrong.

It's got a nice stance, like the Ascari KZ1, which this car reminds me of.

But what the hell is up with the name? MP4-12C? With the F1 team in crappers, I don't think a direct connection to it will do any good. If anything, just call it the Senna and be done with it. Or better yet, The Bruce.
