McLaren MP4-12C – The World’s Best Sports Car Isn’t the claim of being “the world’s best sports car” for McLaren MP4-12C too much?Aside from the fact that it is not even out in the market yet, with all the popular sports cars thathave etched a mark on the world’s racing history, this car might be exaggerating or overlooked.But, if one would recall, what is the team that has made great records then in Formula OneChampionships?

Now,the sports car manufacturer that has caused a craze in the racing tournaments – the McLarenAutomotive – will offer their latest baby that will place a winning record in world of racers, theMP4-12C.
  2. 2. If anyone is wondering, “Why McLaren MP4-12C is named that way?” then here is theanswer. Of course, bearing the name “McLaren” shows that this automobile comes in the line ofwinners. The “MP4” in the name is the chassis designation for all the McLaren Formula 1 carsever since 1981. It means “McLaren Project 4” as a result of working with Ron Dennis and his Project 4 association with the company. The number “12” stands for McLaren’s Internal Vehicle Performance Index in which the car rates key performance criteria like power, weight, emissions, and aerodynamic competency. All in all, these values give an overallperformance index that has been used as a standard during this sports car’s developmental stage.And lastly, the letter “C” points out the element Carbon stressing the exclusive application ofcarbon fiber technology to the upcoming McLaren Sports Car collection.Its scientific design is well thought and set to defy the conventional. This car only weighs 1,300kg or 2,866 Lbs and its chassis weighs only 80 kg or 176 Lbs. This car possesses the standardtwin side-by-side seating position and the vehicle’s console at the center is narrowly trimmed tomake the driver sit closer to the middle. The purpose is for the driver can focus more on wherehe is going withoutinterruptions. It is alsothe first production that isdesigned by McLarenafter the F1. The car’sfinal design has beenrevealed on September 8,2009, passed the entiretests on its developmentstage, and set to beavailable to the publicthis year.
  3. 3. If there is a sports car to watch out for, that would definitely be the MP4-12C. Speed, beautiful design, and flexibility – this will sure fire up the racing arenas again. Every inch of the car is wonderfully designed to give the drivers exactly what they needand what they want. Exceptionality, safety, and practicality – these are the attributes one shouldsee when choosing a car. And all of these can be given by this car to each person who wants tohave a car that would never let them down. To be the best, McLaren MP4-12C has to becompared first to its competitors and to its predecessors – and that is for the racers and sports carenthusiasts to decide. McLaren MP4-12C – Top SpeedMcLaren utomotive hasset to make public theirnewest addition to theirroster of winning vehiclesand that is the McLarenMP4-12C. This isdefinitely the sports carevery sports car andracing enthusiast shouldgaze at this year. Notonly that it is McLaren,the team of Formula 1winners, but also becauseit has uniquecharacteristics that cansurpass sports cars thathave set their records. It is not just designed to beat the odds but it will also make the riders
  4. 4. proud to drive this car during competitions. The secret on what makes this McLaren sports carrun fast is the fact that it is intelligently designed. The car is so lightweight that it has used theenvironment’s natural force like the wind and gravity to support its momentum. When it comes to racing, speed is the number one attribute the driver has to check outbefore buying a car or choosing a vehicle to become his racing companion for life. And when itcomes to the speed department, McLaren MP4-12C is definitely not a loser. Try to look at theengine. The engine of the MP4-12C is M838T 3.8 liter V8 twin turbo engine that builds uproughly 592 Horsepower and around 443 Lb-ft of torque. This engine is the very first enginedesigned by McLaren in their partnership with Ricardo, a specialist in engines. The MP4-12C issaid to complete 1,312.34 feet or a quarter of a mile in less than 11 seconds. That is top speed,right. Surely, this car will not let its driver down once they have laid their hands on the steeringwheel of this precious car. MP4-12C is fast and what it needs to stop it is a great braking system. This car will makeuse of the technology based on Formula 1 such as the “brake steer” that is completely computercontrolled where the inside back wheel is braked whenever fast cornering is needed which willmake the car be maneuvered easily. Imagine a car accelerating from 200 kilometers per hour intop speed to braking in to a complete 0 – it will give the driver ease of driving.
  5. 5. There will be three models to be released for MP4-12C and that would be the following:the Normal or Standard which is perfect for people who are always on the go but do not joinracing competitions; Sport for individuals who loves driving and enjoys joining carchampionship events from time to time; and High-Performance which is perfect for competitivepersons who join professional racing competitions to keep up with them each time they will jointhe race. If speed on top of everything else is what one is looking for, then that is what this sportscar will give. Beingable to ride a carthat is not onlybeautiful in theoutside but also fastand speedy on theinside is a veryrewardingexperience. TheMcLaren MP4-12Ccan be acceleratedeasily and can bestopped easily, thatis top speed at itsbest. McLaren MP4-12C – The Future of Supercar Has anybody thought that a sports car like McLaren MP4-12C can become a super car?For that to happen, it must be excellent in every aspect like appearance, speed, and overallperformance. McLaren has pushed the limits of sports cars and there is no way to stop them.How did they do it? Here’s how. McLaren’s scheme of giving MP4-12C an intelligent design defeated the old-fashionedsports car ideas. It is like mixing up the power of nature and the car’s smart design for additionalspeed. The car allows the driver to focus more on the road while driving due its seating locationbeing placed near the center and controls are narrower. The Carbon MonoCell has no seams orjoints gives the driver intense assurance of being safe when he is in the car. This part is only 80kilograms, which is less than the average weight of an adult passenger. This makes the carachieve tough fuel economy targets. It has low front cowl, long windscreen, unique side inlets,and the high rear improve the car’s aerodynamics. The radiator for the MP4-12C is placed besidethe engine to cut down the pipe work from the engine and vice-versa for added lightness. Theyhave increased the aerodynamics by using Computational Fluid Dynamics to spin the air 90-degrees to the radiators to intensify the cooling system.
  6. 6. What separates McLaren MP4-12C to the others is its efficient performance. It has acompact power train and a power efficient engine placed behind which are also lightweight foradded speed. The mid-engine design of the MP4-12C helps lessen the inertia and helps giveperfect balance and lighting speed cornering. The driver will also have a complete control of thiscar. The steering wheel, a replica of the McLaren F1, has the exact grip and thickness for bestpossible control which will make the driver comfortable on the road or on the racetracks. Thecar’s iron brake system is lighter than a carbon ceramic alternative. Combined with the advancebraking technologies, it reduces the reaction time and stopping distances. Why is McLaren keep on flaunting their Carbon fiber composite chassis? That’s becausecarbon is light which enables the car to move faster. At higher temperatures, carbon reacts withoxygen to form carbon oxides, and will reduce such iron oxide or rust to the metal. Though it isprone to oxidization, it resists oxidization more than iron. Carbon isn’t the only element theyused to alter steel. They even used magnesium and placed it on dash support beam because it is50% lighter. See, McLaren is not afraid to design and redesign the car to lessen the weight. Another thing about the MP4-12C is the high mounted exhausts which also lessen theweight of the car to generate higher levels of down force for traction and give excellent stabilitywhen going to the corners. There are plans that McLaren will also develop a convertible versionof MP4-12C wherein there would be a retractable hard top made by either aluminum or carbonfiber. In this version, the 200 mph top speed and the unique butterfly wing doors will remain.Speeding one’s way through his destination with a 360-degrees view of the clear blue sky andcool breeze is what the McLaren MP4-12C Convertible will bring to its drivers.
  7. 7. McLaren MP4-12C – Automotive Craze The craze created by automotives has become scattered all over the world and the nextone to make the sensation going on is the McLaren MP4-12C. It will not take a long time beforethis car make the sports car lovers go wild again since it will be made available this 2011.McLaren have conquered the racing world for past decades and now, they are ready to do itagain by introducing their newest production of sports cars, the MP4-12C. Racing and sports carsenthusiasts all over the globe have waited so long for the release of this new automobile but theirwait is about to end. McLaren has always been smart enough to have partnerships with people who have a good reputation in car production and only those who have good intentions to help them carry their business like Graziano for the dual- clutch gearboxes and Ricardo for the engines. And to make the craze last longer, McLaren has made partnershipwith Tag Heuer, a Swiss luxury watchmaker, to provide limited edition McLaren MP4-12C-inspired watches to its customers as souvenirs. The watch is called MP4-12C Tag HeuerChronograph that has a carbon dial (like that of the carbon fiber covering of the sports car), flyback function, an optional Titanium case, Alcantara leather strap, luminescent markers for thehands, and orange stitching on the bracelet (like the color of the model). In December 2010, McLaren Automotives has announced their interest in joining theGT3 European Championships in 2012 that would be managed by FIA (Fédération Internationalede l’Automobile). In this case, the company would only produce a small number of this sportscar. That’s because during the GT3 event, manufacturers are not allowed to alter the originalspecifications of their cars. So McLaren have to join in a ready-to-race car to their chosen driver.McLaren has stated that they will give maintenance for the cars and will begin racing in 2012with CRS Racing Team. Among the list of cars allowed in GT3 are Aston Martin DBRS9, AudiR8 LMS, BMW Z4GT3, Ferrari 458 GT3, Ford GT GT3, Lamborghini Gallardo LP600 GT3,
  8. 8. Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3, and Porsche 911 GT3R. If that would really happen, it will bethe first car to compete for the company since the Formula 1 GTR. The world willbe surprised to see thisnew car because it haspassed so many testswith flying colors justto provide theconsumers what theyneed in order to keep upwith the driving assmoothly as possiblewithout compromisingthe speed.
