New Vehicle Close-Up: McLaren MP4-12C

The British automotive manufacturer introduced this spiritual successor to the legendary McLaren F1 in late 2009. Set to launch this year, the McLaren MP4-12C design follows similar principles to McLaren's Formula 1 cars and McLaren F1, where everything is for a reason and all lines, surfaces, and details are designed with a job in mind as much as styled. With a twin-turbocharged 3.8 litre V-8 churning out 592 hp, the MP4-12C will be capable of reaching speeds in excess of 200 MPH!
