McLaren MP4-12C: New British sports car enters production

We first saw the McLaren MP4-12C last year when it was officially introduced at the 2010 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The highly anticipated sports car has finally gone in to production according to McLaren.

Auto Week are reporting that McLaren have said that there will be as many as 1,000 MP4-12C’s built this year. The car, McLarens’ first since the mighty F1will sell for $231,400 in the US, and £168,500 in the UK. Made from a one-piece carbon fiber shell, the MP4-12C is said to be able to accelerate from 0 to 200 km/h in less than ten seconds.

It is powered by a 3.8-liter V8 which produces 592hp, which will give it a top speed in excess of 322 km/h. It is due to go on sale in late summer around the world in 35 markets, including ten in North America.

Once you have purchased your McLaren MP4-12C, you will need to accessorize it. The supercar is set to get its own special edition Tag Heuer watch according to a report on Auto Guide. Only 1000 of these are going too made and will be available towards the end of 2011. Check a video of the McLaren MP4-12C in action below.
