UK-supplied MP4-12C, one owner, 22,880 miles in Azure Blue...
Details Specification

The MP4-12C is McLaren's first production car since the legendary McLaren F1. Unlike the F1, the MP4-12C is powered by a 3.8-litre V8, twin-turbo engine that can propel the car from 0 to 124 mph in an incredible 8.9 seconds. Designed by Frank Stephenson, who also styled the Ferrari F430 and the new Mini, the MP4-12C was launched in 2011 and is built using a great deal of technology from McLaren's Formula One program. For example, a Formula One style carbon tub, known as a 'carbon monocell', forms the basis of the car's chassis and weighs only 80 kg. In addition, the engine is mated to a seven-speed automatic dual-clutch gearbox allowing for seamless gear changes. Even the name 'MP4-12C' is an homage to McLaren's Formula One history, as every chassis since 1981 has been labeled MP4.  Reviews of the model confirmed that McLaren had achieved what they set out to do with their new car. Evo Magazine stated: "It's faster than a Ferrari 458 Italia, has more useable performance, rides better, has more mechanical grip and is much, much more useable."    This particular McLaren MP4-12C was ordered new by its one and only owner on 31st July 2012 through McLaren London. Finished in Azure Blue with a full red leather interior, additional options include; parking sensors front and rear, branded floor mats, Meridian sound system, Iris upgrade with Sat Nav, McLaren vehicle tracking and electric and heated memory seats. The car has been back to McLaren for its second and third-year full services and will go back there prior to the sale for another service. Now showing just 22,880 miles from new, this one owner car is striking in its colour combination and represents an opportunity to own one of the world's most competent and seamless supercars.
