The McLaren MP4-12C is costing between £125,000 and £175,000 because offers performance and technology that transcends the world’s most reliable and modern supercars. The 12C will be produced by McLaren in the UK.

The advantages of carbon composite – lightweight, high durability and torsional rigidity, and endurance. It has been created to provide a much more linear structure overall which in turn gives to a more dense car that is more manageable to position on the road and more pleasant to drive.
