McLaren has confirmed the final specification details of its upcoming sports car – the MP4-12C.
The McLaren MP4-12C’s twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 will enable the ultra light car to accelerate from zero to 60 in less than 3.3 seconds, with a top speed of 205 mph, the company said Monday. With only 1,336kg its lightness will stand out between the competition, such as the Ferrari 458 Italia.
The car offers a fuel economy of 24.2mpg combined and C02 emissions of 279g/km.
More to the point, the 12C will let you explore these outer limits in relative safety and considerable comfort. It’s a proper two-seater, rather than a compromised two-plus-two, with usable luggage space and thoughtful touches such as coat hooks behind the front seats.
Following are some technical specs of MP4-12C;
- Compression Ratio – 8.7:1
- 32 valve DOHC dual VVT
- Engine maxes at 8,500 rpm displacing 3,799 cc, 600 bhp and 600 Nm torque
- 7 speed SSG transmission with Pre-Cog structure
- Carbon fibre frames
