A few days ago, McLaren announced the selling prices for its new MP4 12C model and what we can say for sure is that this car is everything but cheap. The MP4 12C is priced at $ 229,000 base value excluding some 2,500 $ required as a delivery fee.
Still, even so, the McLaren comes cheaper then it was previously estimated (between $ 225,000 and $ 250,000) but still remains a bit more expensive than the Ferrari 458 Italia that comes at a starting price of $ 225,325.
Asked about this heavy price, Antony Sheriff, the Managing Director of McLaren Automotive reportedly said that the price is fully justified by the high tech MonoCell carbon-fiber chessis, by the powerful 3.8 liter engine and by the bery light body that goes only to about 2,900 lbs. Even more, Sheriff said that from the biggest to the smallest, all the components of the car are carefully tested and released only if they comply with McLaren's standards of quality.
The MP4 12C comes with a 3.8 twin turbo V8 engine with 592 hp connected to a seven speed, double clutch gearbox that lets the McLaren get from not to 60 in 3,8 seconds.
