Ludacris buys McLaren MP4-12C image

Famous American rapper and actor Ludacris has recently added a brand new ride to his garage, a McLaren MP4-12C.

When it comes to American singers or actors and their cars, most of them prefer the Tesla Model S, the Toyota Prius and so on, but every once in a while, one of them steps out from the crowd with a brand new exotic supercar. The example in this case is Ludacris, Christopher Brian Bridges by his real name, who has recently added a brand new McLaren MP4-12C to his garage. Some of the other rides owned by Ludacris include the Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe, the Ferrari FF, the Ferrari 458 Italia, the Bentley Continental GTC, the Range Rover, the Rolls-Royce Phantom or the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid.

The McLaren MP4-12C has been in production ever since 2011 and the model is rivaling the Ferrari 458 Italia and the Lamborghini Aventador. The model is getting two body styles, coupe and roadster, and a rear mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout. Power is being provided by a 3.8L twin turbo V8 engine, which is producing a total output of 592 HP (441 kW) and 601 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque. In October 2012, McLaren has updated the supercar and its unit is now good for 616 HP (459 kW). Power is sent ot the wheels through a 7-speed automatic dual clutch transmission.
