2012 McLaren MP4-12C by Mansory

A Geneva Motor Show isn’t at all complete without the participation of one of the best tuners in the world, one that also calls Switzerland its home.

Days before the opening of one of the biggest auto shows in the world, we finally get an idea what Mansory has up its sleeve. One of their Geneva presentations is a new program for the McLaren MP4-12C , which comes complete with a full aero kit and a significant performance upgrade.

Diving into the body package, the British supercar received a host of new components, all of which were designed to deliver improved aerodynamics. The ultralight bonnet with exposed carbon fiber sections and the proprietary daytime driving lights are a good place to start. The program also comes with a new front and rear apron, new mirror housings, newly designed side sills, a new rear wing profile, and a new diffuser. All the components of this aero kit are made of carbon fiber, providing improved acceleration and braking power, while also improving the supercar’s fuel consumption due to the drastic weight savings.

As for the interior, Mansory knows only to use the finest materials in their programs and it’s no exception on the MP4-12C, thanks to plenty of high-quality leather stitched with contrasting thread by the in-house saddlery. In addition, there are also plenty of carbon fiber elements, as well as a newly designed airbag sports steering wheel and aluminum pedals.

The last part of the program involves the MP4-12C’s 3.8-liter V8 engine. Thanks to a new high-performance exhaust system, a new engine-management system, and a sports air filter with increased air through flow, Mansory was able to increase the MP4-12C’s output from the stock 592 horsepower @ 7,000rpm and 443 lb/ft of torque between 3,000 to 6,500rpm all the way up to 661 horsepower and 498 lb/ft of torque, culminating in a new top speed of 220 mph.

It’s front exterior surely appears provocative! I hope its performance is as intimidating as how it looks, considering its engine is high-powered.

The aesthetic retouch is job well done. Also, look at the color of those stunning complementary wheel rims. The little lights on the front are distinctive, too.

Wow, everything is perfect with this McLaren MP4-12C. The air inlets on the side of the vehicles make the engine cooler. The idea of LED fog lights is great. The wheels were also stunning.
