The British based automaker McLaren has recently announced a milestone, after 3,000 units of the 12C have been produced over the years.
Things are working well for McLaren these days and after officially introducing its most powerful production car ever, the P1, back in March, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the British based automaker is now enjoying a milestone. According to the car manufacturer, a total of 3,000 units of the 12C have been produced.
“The celebrations were marked by current Vodafone McLaren Mercedes drivers Jenson Button and Sergio Perez, who took part in the display in the two latest models from McLaren Automotive. Perez arrived in the 3,000th production 12C – a 12C Spider finished in striking Volcano Yellow, while 2009 Formula 1™ world champion Jenson Button showcased the McLaren P1™ in front of the entire McLaren Group staff, dressed in Rocket Red t-shirts to honor the landmark occasion”, as the carmaker is saying in its official press release.
The McLaren 12C Spider is powered by the same engine as its solid roof brother, the MP4-12C, a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8, which is producing a total output of 592 HP at 7,000 rpm and it has a peak torque of 443 lb-ft, available between 3,000 rpm and 7,000 rpm. The British supercar can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 205 mph.
