McLaren 12C 2013: The new reference
With the unveiling of the McLaren 650S (which is heavily based on the MP4-12C), many wonder what is henceforth instead of 12C, now it appears in the bottom of the standings in the English manufacturer. The 650S is more advanced, more powerful, more agile and in the same price range (if you are in search of such a car, a difference of "barely" 25,000? $ Does not really scare you). Firm Woking we had however ensures that the car would remain in production for at least the next year.
Following an announcement last month, McLaren that the production of the MP4-12C would have been missed to build more 650S, the ax just fell: 12C is no more.
McLaren communicates the new featured current owners of 12C in a letter, explaining that the 650S was the future of the MP4. It is after all based on the same architecture, and the engine roared grace that it even.
To help get the pill, the manufacturer will provide free of charge to owners of 12C an upgrade of aerodynamics software, which uses some innovations found on the 650S including airbrake system and device for the reduction of trainee high speed. This upgrade should be available in June.
According to McLaren, sales of the MP4-12C were no longer what they were. In return, those of the 650S are better than ever, with a waiting list of almost 6 months.
