2013 McLaren MP4-12C by Autodynamica

Posted on by  

There aren’t very much tuners out there that have put their talents to use on the McLaren MP4-12C , but the gang over at Autodynamica decided to load up the McLaren with all sorts of exterior, interior and, most importantly, performance upgrades.

The tuner started by updating the exterior look of the MP4-12C . For this the coated the lower lip in a sharp gray. Autodynamica then turned its attention to installing a carbon-fiber lower grille bars and side-view mirrors, giving the MP4-12C a more race-inspired look. Under the hood, the customers will get a surprise in the form of a signature from F1 McLaren driver Sergio "Checo" Perez.

Our favorite part of this project, as you can likely guess, is what’s under the hood. Under here, the tuner reprogrammed the ECU and spent an exhausting – no pun intended – 10 hours installing a new Fabspeed X-pipe and high-flow catalytic converters.

After these changes, the super car now turns in an astounding 724 horsepower and 552 pound-feet of torque.

After a tune of this magnitude, you need to add some extra sticky stuff under the car. Autodynamica was happy to oblige with a set of 20- and 21-inch HRE wheels on the front and rear, respectively, wrapped in high-performance rubber.
