McLaren’s sleek 2011 MP4-12C Supercar

Today, McLaren dropped the curtain to display a novel vehicle that has the mission to bolster their position in the tough supercar market, and this time with the smoothest chassis they’ve ever produced. The officially titled MP4-12C clarifies from the first glance that its roots lie close to the impressive F1, thus it necessitates the vehicle to feature few top-notch innovations. Besides the low curb weight of 3,000 pounds, the seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox jostles into spotlight with bearing the promising acronym SSG, which concisely phrases a system that is touted to drastically shorten the shift times. A twin-turbocharged 3.8L V8 works in the core of this McLaren, and produces over 600 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque – certainly a decent dignitary for the storied marque.
