The MP4-12C was released in 2011 as the first McLaren production car fully developed by the company, and their first road car since the legendary McLaren F1. Built over a carbon composite chassis, the MP4-12C is powered by a 3.8L twin-turbocharged V8 producing 592 HP mated to a Graziano seven-speed Seamless-Shift dual-clutch gearbox and is also the first drivetrain fully designed by McLaren. This 2012 example is finished in black over a black leather/Alcantara interior with red contrast stitching and was optioned with carbon fiber exterior options such as a carbon fiber front splitter, rear diffuser, and side mirrors, an MSO sport exhaust, lightweight Stealth-finished forged wheels, the Stealth Package, carbon fiber interior trim, parking sensors, and more. Having recently received a full service in December of 2021, this MP4-12C is now being offered at auction by its seller in Virginia showing approximately 39k miles on the odometer.
The carbon fiber composite bodywork is finished in black, built around a Carbon MonoCell safety tub. Equipment includes an optional carbon fiber front splitter, rear diffuser, and mirror casings, painted red brake calipers with white McLaren logos, and a dual-exit exhaust and airbrake mechanism finished in Satin Black as part of the Stealth Pack. The seller reports the front bumper, passenger door, and rear bumper have been refinished due to an accident, though the title remains clean. The 19”/20" lightweight forged wheels are finished in Stealth and mounted with Pirelli P-Zero tires from 2019.
The interior is trimmed in black leather and Alcantara, featuring power-adjustable and heated seats with McLaren logos on the headrests. Alcantara upholstery extends to the dashboard and center console, accented with red contrast stitching and carbon fiber trim on the center console, steering wheel spokes, door sills, and door panels. Amenities include dual-zone automatic climate control, a 7” portrait format touchscreen infotainment display, a Meridian sound system, front and rear parking sensors, and cruise control. A K40 radar detector was fitted by a previous owner.
The MP4-12C is equipped with a 3.8L twin-turbocharged M838T V8 that produces up to 592 HP and 443 lb.-ft of torque, sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed Seamless Shift dual-clutch transmission by Graziano. Acceleration from 0-60 MPH occurs in around 3 seconds with a claimed top speed of 207 MPH. Performance features include the ProActive Chassis Control suspension with adaptive dampening and hydraulic roll control, launch control, an Active Dynamics Panel with three settings, Normal, Sport, and Track, a factory MSO sport exhaust, an active airbrake, and an F1-inspired Brake Steer system, which mimics the action of a torque vectoring differential. The seller reports the vehicle has been recently serviced, a new battery has been installed and notes that the TPMS warning light is present.
This sale will include a clean title and some service documentation.
