How Good is the McLaren 12C?


XCar takes a look at the universally admired British supercar.

It’s a question that auto-scribes have been asking ever since the car arrived in 2011, but one that XCar has just gotten around to asking. The McLaren 12C’s closest rival is the Ferrari 458 Italia and those with enough coin faced with choosing between these two sexy supercars have a tricky decision to make. It’s a problem we’d all love to have of course. XCar has just delivered its unique take on the British supercar and in typically patriotic style lauds up the supercar that’s “Made in England.”

The 600-horsepower 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8, 207 mph top speed, and Frank Stephenson styled lines, make this a very special car.
