Earlier this year, luxury German tuner, DMC, introduced its Velocita program for the McLaren MP4-12C . Months have passed since then, but it seems like DMC spent all that time building a special version of that incredible program.
This is the McLaren HS-12 Velocita SE, a irresistibly eye-catching take on the British supercar , complete with a new aerodynamic kit, posh interior upgrades and a unique color finish that brings out the aura of the MP4-12C like few other tuning programs could.
One look at the MP4-12C and you’ll immediately gravitate towards the Emerald Red Couture body finish DMC used on the supercar. We can’t blame you for drooling because we had to stop ourselves from doing so, too. But once we got our bearings back, we also noticed a few details about the new aero kit fitted into the MP4-12C.
The aerodynamic engineering is clearly evident, as shown by the supercar’s redesigned carbon-fiber grill to go with a new front lip spoiler with an enhanced downforce on the front axle, as well as carbon-fiber side flaps that work by supporting the pressure between the axles and, in turn, improves the car’s road stability. A carbon-fiber rear diffuser was also installed, with the new one treated to the addition of two two fins and goes hand-in-hand with a brand-new exhaust system that’s made of pure titanium.
A large rear wing and a set of 21-inch diamond forged alloy wheels round out DMC’s HS-12 Velocita SE program for the McLaren MP4-12C, further underscoring the DMC’s brilliance in billing programs like this while also highlighting the MP4-12C’s growing clout as an aftermarket favorite.

The MP4-12C was launched on the market in 2011 as a direct challenger to the Ferrari 458 Italia . The initial model was powered by a 3.8-liter, twin-turbo V-8 producing 592 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 443 pound-feet of torque delivered between 3,000 and 7,000 rpm. For the 2013 model year, the car’s engine was updated to a total of 616 horsepower.
With the extra power, the MP4-12C runs from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds and hits a top speed of 207 mph.
