2013 McLaren MP4-12C Features
The exterior of 2013 McLaren MP4-12C has been kept subtle though its size is its most prominent aspect. 2013 McLaren MP4-12C is impressively long at 177.4 inches. Also, it is almost 8 inches shorter to Aston Martin DBS. At 75.2 inches, MP4-12C is definitely wider than Lamborghini Gallardo. It has been designed by Frank Stephenson of the fame of MINI Cooper and Ferrari F430.
The back design of this supercar is more appealing than its front. Although its height and width matches up to those of its Italian rivals, it lacks that much expected dramatic look that every supercar is associated with.
The most striking aspect of 2013 McLaren MP4-12C is the absence of door handles. Instead the door works through a key fob and opens when it senses you approaching towards the car. All you have to do is to slide the hand exactly in the place where normally the door handle is fitted. Smaller may trouble you while getting in or out but remember that it’s a supercar.
But once you are inside it MP4-12C welcomes you with all the geeky stuffs ready to blow your mind. Interestingly, the smaller entrance does not cut down on headroom and space for legs. Rather, even a very tall person can sit comfortably and concentrate only on driving.
McLaren’s desire for innovation and uniqueness will give you tough time with all the controls and switches. Center console has been narrowed down and climate control switch has been moved to driver’s side door. The center console is mostly consumed by flat screen with stereo and navigation features. Another unique feature of 2013 McLaren MP4-12C is that the parking brake automatically disengages once the engine is started.
2013 McLaren MP4-12C is powered by twin-turbo 3.8L V8 engine, which is the first of its kind from McLaren. The engine renders 592 horsepower and 443lb-ft of torque. By the time this model is launched, McLaren will come up another superior model that would render as high as 625 horsepower.
The best thing about the engine is that a reconfigured ECU will be included that accounts for that extra grunt that sends power to the rear wheels. 2013 McLaren MP4-12C sports 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. However, absence of manual transmission is surely going to disappoint enthusiasts.
2013 McLaren MP4-12C does not sport heavy clutch and hence can be easily maneuvered even at low speeds. When the MP4-12C moves at low speeds, the steering gets light and the driver can easily make his/her way through congested traffic and parking lots. The new MP4-12C sports a bunch of controls that make driving real pleasure. 2013 McLaren MP4-12C offers three driving modes each for performance and handling.
