While quite a few supercars have had fairly uninspired names, this is generally considered to be the worst. This is funny, since the car itself is without question one of the best ever made. This irony is said to be lost on the folks at McLaren, who are not generally known for having a sense of humor. What they are known for is building truly amazing cars, the MP4-12C is right along those lines, and it is clear that it was built by people who knew what they were doing. The car competes with the Ferrari 458 Italia, another car which is simply astounding.
