McLaren MP4-12C hits guardrail in the U.S. image

Another example of the McLaren MP4-12C has been crashed recently, this time in the United States.

It may have left the production line in order to make room for the 650S, but that doesn’t mean that the MP4-12C has showed what it is capable of and it is now returning into our attention with a crashed example. The silver-finished supercar has hit the guardrail in the United States, on a canyon road, after the driver lost control of the wheel. The vehicle has been crashed at high speed and if it hadn’t hit the guardrail, than it would have tumbled down an adjacent cliff. The damages sustained are significant and chances are the model has been completely destroyed. We’re not sure what the condition of the driver is but it has been confirmed that there were no fatalities.

McLaren has assembled the MP4-12C for just 3 years, between 2011 and 2014, in Woking, Surrey, England. The model has been designed by Frank Stephenson and it was offered in two body styles, the coupe, the MP4-12C, and the roadster, the 12C Spider. Both of them were carrying the same 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine under their hood, rated at approximately 592 HP (441 kW) and 601 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque, connected to the 7-speed dual clutch transmission. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the McLaren MP4-12C needed just 3 seconds and the quarter mile was run in just over 10 seconds. The official top speed was 333 km/h (207 mph).
