Meh the F1 would still be my choice...

Quote :
McLaren's presence at the Paris motor show was limited to a 'behind the scenes' appearance of the new 12C for French media and potential customers, but a new set of photos has been released of the all new 12C

The pics were taken during recent 'extreme weather testing' in Arizona, which is the latest round of an intensive programme that began in 2007, and during which more than 40 prototype vehicles have been built to undertake real world testing.

The latest iteration of 12C concept-phase vehicles is codenamed Validation Prototype (VP), they tell us, and McLaren VP and XP (Experimental Prototype - the previous phase of 12C concept car) 12Cs are being continuously tested in the UK and across Europe.
With temperatures peaking at 46 degrees Celsius (115 degrees Fahrenheit), a 28-strong team of engineers, technicians and vehicle development partners ran two VP cars and one XP car day and night over three weeks on a mixture of driving surfaces between Lake Havasu City - where the team was based - and the town of Flagstaff, further west in Arizona.

The 12C prototypes began testing on a dynamic handling platform and high speed circuit at a proving ground near Yucca, and then completed the programme at high altitude on public roads in Flagstaff.

Pleasingly, the guys also decided to record the event for posterity with an 'official snapper' - these images are the result.

Looks like it's the new generation of 12 year olds dream car.

Looks like a cross between a Murcielago, F430 and a Tesla.

I like them, but as said, not a proper replacement for the F1. No car ever will be IMO.

Still, I'd have one, in proper McLaren orange please. You can also spec the interior so that the driver's seat and everything on the driver's side is colour coded differently to the passenger. Which looks pimp Very Happy

Rear end does it for me though, like an R8 but 10 times better

My old work kicked crysler out along with 90% of the staff so they could sell and service these.

Worked out well for me though thanks to jamesy

As for the car l dont think it looks like anything special.
