The McLaren 12C. The supercar that gave the established supercar manufacturers such as Ferrari and Lamborghini something to worry about. The 12C burst on to the scene as the first production McLaren for a number of years and instantly proved to be one of the fastest and technically capable cars on sale.
The car was created to be as precise and aerodynamic as possible. As a result the styling is not to everyone’s taste and McLaren addressed this with the release of the MSO packages which brought various visual and aero-changes.
However, this owner in Singapore opted to have a custom kit produced for their 12C and it certainly is striking! The most drastic change is the rear diffuser that is much larger than the standard part. The roof of the car has been wrapped black for some additional contrast and the rear wing has also been swapped for a much more pronounced part with a larger flick.
The McLaren 12C hides a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine delivering 616 hp at 7,000 rpm and 443 lb-ft of torque between 3,000 and 7,000 rpm under the bonnet. Those performance figures offer a sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds (3.1 seconds with corsa tires). As a result the car certainly earns itself supercar status.
