The investment could pay serious dividends.
With the arrival of the McLaren 650S, expect to see fewer and fewer new 12Cs entering the supercar market. Will that make the entry-level McLaren more valuable over time? Perhaps, and if you're of similar opinion, consider this 12C that's currently up for sale in Dubai. As you can see, the front end has taken one hell of a wallop. So much so the airbags have deployed. The damage looks primarily cosmetic but the carbon-fiber tub has also suffered some damage.
With a sizeable discount and the chance to own what will surely be a future classic – would you be up for taking it on? After all, once it's all put back together you'll have a state-of-the-art supercar with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 with 616 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. That's not something that will start feeling old any time soon.
