German tuner Hamann has been known for some pretty eclectic and outlandish projects. But no matter what kind of expectations we have for those guys, we were still caught off guard when photos of a McLaren MP4-12C Art Car popped up on their Facebook page.
We’ve since found out details regarding this MP4-12C Art Car and as it turns out, it’s actually based on the MP4-12C program they first introduced last March. Remember the MemoR that was unveiled at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show earlier this year?
That one carried a pretty ill aesthetic and aerodynamic program despite not having any performance improvements to it. This one, though, takes the aesthetics to a whole new level. It’s described as a "magnificent haute couture," a description that pays ode to its flashy, multi-color body that has been combined with an aerodynamic body kit that draws inspiration from the McLaren F1. There’s a new front bumper with LED daytime running lights, a front splitter, a roof-mounted air intake, revised side skirts, an extended diffuser, a prominent rear wing and new set of 21" aluminum wheels.
Unlike other Art Cars that were mostly built for display, this MP4-12C MemoR Art Car’s styling kit is actually for sale. Hold on to your seats, though, because the kit has a sticker tag of €95,000, which is over $123,000 based on current exchange rates. And that doesn’t even come with any performance improvements!
Then again, if your MP4-12C looks like this, you won’t have trouble catching a ton of attention.
