Another McLaren MP4-12C has been crashed, this time in Germany, after its driver lost control of the wheel due to speeding.
The McLaren MP4-12C may have recently left the production line in order to make room for the 650S, but that doesn’t mean that this isn’t one hot ride and when you own such a hot ride, the only thing you can do is push the throttle and spin like crazy. Eventually you will end up crashing your “baby”, which is exactly what happened in this case. Speed is to blame, not the driver. The incident took place in Wessling, Germany, and it seems that no one was injured.
McLaren Automotive has produced the MP4-12C for just 3 years and it had a carbon fiber composite chassis and a rear mid-engine, rear-wheel drive layout. The supercar stood at 4,509 mm in length, 1,908 mm in width and 1,199 mm in height, weighing in at 1,434 kg. The 3.8L twin turbo engine debuted on the MP4-12C, with its 592 HP (441 kW) and 601 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque, available at 8,500 rpm. Power was sent to the RWD through a dual clutch 7-speed automatic transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint took 3.1 seconds and top speed stood at 333 km/h (207 mph).
