McLaren MP4-12C Price Confirmed

mclaren mp4 12c at McLaren MP4 12C Price Confirmed

Although McLaren had announced the pricing of the new and amazing MP4-12C Compact Supercar a couple of times before, but today they confirmed the official MSRP of the car for UK and Europe. Based on that, the MP4 starts at £168,500 in UK and from €200,000 in EU. So, if you ordered a Ferrari 458 recently, feel free to regret it!

The McLaren MP4-12C costs less than the Ferrari, looks just as good – if not better – has more power, and it’s also just as advanced technologically. I’m not suggesting for a minute that this is better than the Ferrari, but it’s just as good, and that’s high praise. It’s really a matter of taste choosing between these two. Some go for the British and some for the Italian.

12C prices in UK and European markets, inc. VAT:

United Kingdom £168,500*
Germany €200,000
France/Monaco €201,000
Italy €201,680
Belgium €203,360

The MP4 features a MonoCell carbon fiber chassis and body which result in a dry weight of just 1,300 kg. So it’s very capable, given the 600 PS weapons-grade 3.8-litre V8 under the hood which produces less than 300g/km CO2.

The 12C can be specified with a wide range of personalisation options, pricing for which will be confirmed at launch. There are 17 high-grade exterior paint finishes, including ‘McLaren Orange’ – a solid hue that was made famous by the McLaren racing cars of the 1960s and ?70s.

A choice of 14 interior trims can be specified inside the cabin. Performance upgrades include a sports exhaust system, carbon ceramic brake discs, polished-finish callipers and two lightweight forged wheel options. The ‘standard’ 12C features just one piece of carbon – the MonoCell – but carbon fibre options will include mirror casings, engine bay panels and engine cover.

Antony Sheriff, Managing Director of McLaren Automotive said: “When we embarked on this challenge to design, develop, build, sell, and service the world’s most exciting and high-quality high-performance sports cars – from a brand new factory at our Formula One headquarters – we knew expectations would be high. To deliver a true McLaren sports car, and, frankly, a reason to exist amongst great competition, it was clear we needed a unique concept that offered tangible advantages.  With a unique carbon chassis as the foundation, and a powerful, but highly efficient McLaren engine at its heart, the 12C offers staggering value: no other carbon-based car can compete at this price-point, or with the 12C’s technology and performance.
