And no, it's not the P1.
The McLaren P1 is one of the craziest and most brutal supercars on the road today. Before McLaren came out with the P1, the automaker created the 12C, which wasn’t like any other supercar on the road. Unlike the Ferrari 458 Italia, the 12C was a little clinical and wasn’t the most sought after supercar ever made. As one of McLaren’s first production supercars, the automaker left some meat on the bone and released a high-performance limited edition High Sport model. One of the extremely limited supercars will be crossing the block at Mecum Auctions.
Just 10 12C High Sport units were built and McLaren chairman and chief executive Ron Dennis specially commissioned this model. Chassis number nine is finished in a special F1 Vodafone Racing team livery and comes with the optional Stealth Package, carbon fiber package, carbon ceramic brakes and a sports exhaust system. Under the hood, the 12C has the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 from the regular supercar, but gets a massive increase in power with a total of 675 hp. This model won the “Best British Import” award at the Festivals of Speed at Amelia Island in 2014 and “Best in Show, People’s Choice” at this year’s Festivals of Speed in St. Petersburg, FL. With only 208 miles, Mecum thinks the supercar will fetch between $1.3 and $1.6 million.
