McLaren Launch MP4-12C in Abu Dhabi with Stunning Video

Video

Promotional video shows how the everyday 600hp supercar can be a beast on the track and a dream to drive on the road.

Sprinting over stunning desert landscapes and racing around the fantastic Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi, the F1-inspired McLaren MP4-12C is looking better than ever in this brand new promotional video. Launching the McLaren Abu Dhabi retailer is a pretty big deal for the supercar maker, which now has a Middle Eastern network of six retailers. By the summer they hope to have 35 retailers across 19 countries worldwide.

Quite possibly the quintessential 21st century performance car, the MP4-12C is powered by a race-derived twin-turbocharged V8 that displaces 3.8 liters and produces 592hp and 443lb-ft of torque, 80 percent of which is available from less than 2,000 rpm.
