The 2011 McLaren MP4

This supercar is very light as a result of it is made of carbon fiber composite and is claimed capable of driving up to 400 kph or equal to the McLaren F1 – 390 kph. This supercar acceleration takes only a 0-200 kph in under 10 seconds. Instead, time stopped 200 to 0 kph less than 5 seconds.

On the 2011 McLaren MP4-12C’s heart lies a carbon fibre monocoque (a tub light enough for 2 males to lift), a structure that McLaren insists means new standards in handling, ride, performance, safety, economy and practicality. Behind the rear seats sits a 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 with 600bhp, that is driven through a McLaren seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, controlled via steering-wheel mounted paddles.

McLaren Automotive claims that “12C is the most environment friendly of V8 super cars, most drivable high-performance sports car on the earth”. The engine revs to 8,500rpm; 80 per cent of the torque is available below 2,000 rpm. Though no official fuel economy figures are available yet, the car should end up with a CO2 g/km emissions figure somewhere in the 200s.
