Monterey 2010: McLaren MP4-12C and Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport

By Updated on

Two cars made their North American debut yesterday at Monterey 2010, the much-anticipated McLaren MP4-12C and Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport. Both cars are capable of mind-blowing speeds, with one being able to leave the other standing, but it’s not all about brute force.

Although the new Veyron SS holds the title of the fastest production car once again, you cannot take it away from the new McLaren, its sexy design and all of its technology straight from F1. The British company was on hand too not only talk about selling the MP4-12C in the U.S. but also other projects that they have coming up.

Autoblog were on hand for both debuts and Frank Filipponio noted that McLaren could be launching a new flagship vehicle as early as 2012, let us hope that this comes packed with their famous KERS technology.

As for the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, this car was last seen on Top Gear topping 268mph and getting its crown back as the fastest production car. This is certain to be a huge selling point for the vehicle, we do not know how many will be built, but we know that it is to cost $2.4 million – give me the MP4-12C any day.

If you had to choose what would it be the McLaren MP4-12C or the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport?

    "Their" KERS technology? KERS unit on the McLarens last year was manufactured by Mercedes-Benz and will definitely not be supplied for road car use given the current relationship between the two companies as far as road cars are produced! Some journalism wouldn't go astray….

      no their kers was not manufactured by mercedes…paid for by perhaps, but it was a third party that manufactured the technology. both mclren and mercedes input was the incorperation of the technology into a race car, not the technology itself
