The Gold Rush Rally has recently performed a victim, in the shape of a McLaren MP4-12C, which has been crashed.
McLaren may have stopped producing the MP4-12C recently, in order to make room for its successor, the 650S, but that doesn’t mean that the supercar is good for the scrap yard. Sadly, every once in a while, the info that comes to us regarding such a model is instantly adding it to our Car Crashes category. This is the case with the white example of the MP4-12C pictured above which, according to Wrecked Exotics, has hit a storage unit during the Gold Rush Rally, in California.
The McLaren MP4-12C has been produced between 2011 and 2014 in Woking, Surrey, England, and it was offered in two body styles, Coupe (MP4-12C) and roadster (12C Spider). Both supercars shared the same 3.8 liter twin turbo mid-mounted engine, which is also found on the newer 650S, on the more expensive P1 and also on the upcoming entry-level Sport Series. On the MP4-12C, the unit was rated at 592 HP (441 kW) and 601 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the supercar needed just 3 seconds and top speed stood at 328 km/h (204 mph).
