McLaren MP4-12C by Vorsteiner

McLaren is by all means a spectacular brand that creates awesome vehicles. Since its official debut, McLaren MP4 sports car has been the subject of many tuning companies. The car has been upgraded again and again by tuning firms. Mansory, Hamann Motorsports, Gemballa, Fab Design, Wheelasandmore, Hennessey Performance are just a few of the names that had the guts to modify the already super car. Vorsteiner, as every respectable tuning company, is no exception to the rule. They have just revealed a breathtaking Volcano Orange McLaren MP4-12 C, although they have done other upgrades on the car before.

The McLaren MP4-12C is powered by a 3.8 L V8 twin turbo McLaren M838T engine mated with 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The engine works its 625 horsepower (460 kW) and sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.1 seconds. The maximum speed is electronically limited at 329 km/h (204 mph). The MP4-12C achieves 11.7 L/100 km fuel consumption on avarage and delivers CO2 emissions of 279 g/km. It is certainly one of the most wanted vehicles in the world and Vorsteiner is the tuner that thinks about those fortunate owners which need to show something more special.

Vorsteiner placed some new elements on the McLaren MP4-12C. First of all, they set a full carbon front bumper with integrated PDC (Parking Distance Control) Sensors and Headlight Washer. At the rear,they also placed a new bumper with the same sensors, while at the sides there are some side sill extension blades. Any McLaren is more than obvious on road, but Vorsteiners supercar with its Volcano Orange exterior is more than that. The supercar sits on Sport Multi-Piece Forged VSM-311 Wheels sized 20×9J and 21×12.5J at the front and rear, respectively, wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Nero rubbers measuring 255/45R20 at the front and 375/20/21 at the rear.
