These days, most car manufacturers seem to be interested in giving people top speed cars which are capable of lowering fuel consumption, without cutting the engine’s strength, when accelerating the car. Of course, we can not neglect the interest various top brands have in producing cars which cut carbon emissions that are considered to be a real threat for environment and people’s health. These days, many full-electric or hybrid cars have been released, in order to reduce the damage over nature and respond the need many people have in going green. However, if you are in favor of top-speed cars, you should know that full-electric cars are not capable of delivering the top speeds you will find in various sport cars, like the McLaren MP4-12C. If you are interested in super-cars and you want to test the engine capabilities of a car that is guaranteed not to disappoint you when it comes to aggressive look and power, you should definitely schedule a test drive on this car, produced by the McLean Automotive.

The first thing you need to know about this automobile is that it represents a two-seat coupe which also is a convertible sport car. This prototype was initially presented in showroom in September 2009, but it was released later on in 2011. The new MP4-12C represents the first car launched by McLean, over the past 15 years. In short, we can say that this super-car symbolizes the rebirth of the British company that promises, for the future, to come with new models, including the long-awaited successor of the F1.

Back to the McLaren MP4-12C, you should know that this super-car is given a 3.8 l – V8 engine which is provided with two huge turbines. The twin-turbo engine provides this sport-car with 616 hp that can make the car reach a top speed of 333 km/ h or 207 mph. Moreover, you should find out that this two-seat coupe can go from 0 to 97 km/ h (or 60 mph) in only 3 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/ h (or 124 mph) in less than 9 seconds. Full power is transmitted to the rear wheels exclusively through a 7- speed dual-clutch transmission. We can not pass forward without mentioning the aerodynamics this car has, as well as the fact that it also features adjustable suspension and innovative braking system. The McLaren MP4-12C is a rear-mid engine car that gets its strength from its aerodynamic and aggressive look, as well as from the technical characteristics under the hood.
