U.S.: McLaren MP4-12C starts at $231,000 image

McLaren has recently announced the starting price for the MP4-12C supercar in the United States, which has been set at 231, 000 USD.

After the car manufacturer was releasing a video with the McLaren MP4-12C arriving in the United States more than a month ago, the supercar is once again highlighted, this time by the company announcing its official starting price over-seas, which has been set at 231,000 USD. Even if the McLaren MP4-12C now has an official starting price in the United States, the car manufacturer still didn’t release extra details on it and we don’t actually know anything about its features.

As a small reminder, the 2012 McLaren MP4-12C is powered by the 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8 engine which is producing a total output of 592 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and it has a peak torque of 443 lb-ft, available between 3,000 and 7,000 rpm. The engine is allowing the supercar to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds before stopping at a top speed of 205 mph. McLaren says that the Corsa tire option cuts down 0.2 seconds from the 0 to 62 mph acceleration and the supercar can do a quarter mile in 10.9 seconds at 134 mph.
