It seems that the McLaren MP4-12C will be as successful as the McLaren F1, which is a true legend and according to many proffesional pilots - "The best handling car in the world".

Once again, the engine is 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8 mounted in the middle of the car. It delivers 600PS (441 kW) and 600Nm (443 lb-ft), which means 3.3 seconds to 100 km/h and 9.1 seconds to 200 km/h. The quarter mile is covered in 10.9 seconds, which as fast as a big motorcycle. The top speed is way lower than F1's - "only" 330 km/h (205 mph).

The engine is mated to a 7-speed SSG gearbox with three driving modes: Normal, Sport and Track. There is also an adjustable roll control, which replaces mechanical anti-roll bars. It also has a suspension control module with 3 modes too, Normal, Sport and Track. The most staggering in MP4-12C is its weight - 1301kg.

The price - $229 000.
