The McLaren 12C, otherwise known as the MP4-12C was the first ever production car wholly designed and built by McLaren, and their first production road car produced since the McLaren F1. There were multiple model versions produced, such as the 12C HS, and the 12C Spider.
Alike to the F1, the McLaren 12C used plenty of carbon fibre – including a carbon fibre composite chassis. It was powered by a longitudinally-mounted McLaren M838T 3.8L twin turbo V8 engine – generating 592 hp and 600 N⋅m of torque. The car makes use of Formula 1-sourced technologies such as “brake steer”, where the inside rear wheel is braking during fast cornering to reduce understeer. Power is transmitted to the wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission Seamless-Shift gearbox, and it uses a unique hydraulic configuration to suspend the vehicle as opposed to more traditional coil springs, dampers and anti-roll bars.
The 12C HS (High Sport) featured different wheels, and revised aerodynamics and power was increased by 75 hp. The 12C Spider was the convertible version of the 12C with a retractable hardtop.
