Car of the day – 2013 McLaren MP4-12C V8 on Forgiato Wheels 1920×1080 HD

Engine: 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 592 hp (435 kW) at 7000 rpm, and torque of 443 lbs-ft (600 Nm) at 3000 rpm. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h or ~0-60 mph can be achieved in 3.1 seconds time limit. The car can drive a quarter mile in just 10.9 seconds. Top speed is 330 km/h or 205 mph. There will be an upgrade which will push the power up to 625 hp (460 kW).

This beautiful white McLaren MP4-12C is on F2.01 Forgiato Wheels. These wheels were initially designed for a Bugatti Veyron model. The simplistic sophistication and the diamond cut lines on the wheels fits this new McLaren just perfectly, and it definitely was a good choice for putting these wheels on this car. Featuring 20 inches at the front and 21 inches at the rear.

Car’s curb weight is 3161 lbs (1434 kg). Length is 4507 mm (177.4 inches). Wheelbase is 2670 mm (105.1 inches) long. Width is 1910 mm (75.2 inches). Height is 1199 mm (47.2 inches).

A new 2013 McLaren MP4-12C is priced at 241,500 USD ($), so it’s basically 11,000 USD ($) more than the the price of the previous 2012 model. The new model also basically has the same power engine as the previous model. Since all 2012 models are sold out, it’s definitely worth of buying this new model.

Overall it’s a very nice supercar with a powerful engine and good performances. It has one nasty minus, if you are taller than 180 cm, it will be a bit challenging to get in, because the opening is not very big. When you get inside, there will be plenty of space for your head and your legs, because this car was designed for tall people. Well, it was designed for tall people only when you are already inside, because it obviously wasn’t designed that good for getting inside the car.
