|   Friday, June 29, 2012
The McLaren MP4-12C has become more usable and power packed after its enhancement. Its output has been boosted by additional twenty five horsepower to increase it to a max of 616 hp. There is going to be no loss of efficiency even when it is stretched to its limit. The enhancement has been done on the features and the drive train of the car.

The performance aspect has been worked on. It has been made over. Many upgrades have been announced to this already substantial super car.
The 12C will be upgraded with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine. McLaren was emphatic that the mapping of the engine and the subsequent boost to its output will in no way affect the efficiency of the engine. The fuel economy will be sustained at twenty four miles per gallon and the carbon dioxide emissions will remain at 279 grams per kilometer.

The seven-speed SSG (SuperSmart Grid) transmission has also been looked into. It will now give a crisp throttle report with a much improved clutch movement for gear changing which can be smooth and swift. No changes have been done to the exterior design. Only the badge has been redesigned. There is also a new five-spoke design for the wheels. An additional yellow tone has been thrown into the paint mix.

The Innovative Intake Sound Generator will enable programmable sound effects inside the cockpit of the 12C.The sound can be programmed across three stages in all three modes of the power train. This will allow the driver to choose the impact of the sonic drama that he or she is comfortable with on different road conditions.

McLaren Automotive are going ahead to make the 12C into a high end sports performance car that will be a power to reckon with when it is taken out for a drive. The engine is going to be remarkably energetic at track speeds without losing any of its efficiency.

The interior of the 12C has got more options on its trim. There are going to be seats which can be heated along with a revised climate control system. There will be `one touch seat return' function that will set back the driver's seat to the position it was in during the car's previous drive session.

McLaren MP4-12C is going to set a benchmark among all its rivals for the consideration of efficiency and power with its leading technology. It will go into production sometime later this year and it will be priced at $239,400 in the United States of America. People who have already signed for delivery of the 12C will be given a consideration and all of them will be given the choice of a whole host of upgrades that include even the extra engine power boost without additional charges. This move is a reflection of the commitment of McLaren Automotive to its loyal customers to make sure that they receive the full pride of possessing an MP4-12C.

McLaren Automotive holds a heritage worth two decades in the manufacture of high performance sports cars. The McLaren F1 road car was first launched in 1992 and it set the world record in the land speed category for a production car. It is still considered to be one of the icons among sports cars of the modern era.
