McLaren will not start delivering the MP4-12C sports car until spring of 2011, but judging from the overwhelming response to the car - more than 1,600 have already expressed interest in the MP4-12C - McLaren will most likely have a busy year or so ahead of them, especially considering the fact that they’ve already announced that they’re planning on building only 1,000 units a year.

The new McLaren MP4-12C will be priced between £125,000 and £175,000 ($190,000 and $265,000 at the current rates) and will be sold in 35 exclusively-selected dealerships in 19 countries.

The sports car is powered by a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine producing around 600 horsepower and 433 lb-ft of torque. The engine is coupled to a McLaren seven speed Seamless Shift dual clutch gearbox (SSG). It sprints from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3.5 seconds and can hit a top speed of more than 200mph.

And who wouldn’t be interested? One of the finest machine ever. Also, the price is not too much to handle unlike other cars. Unfortunately, not all 1600 can avail that.

Who wouldnt be interested in it? I mean just how hot was the McLaren that they have created in 1993? it’s practically the beginning of the era for faster and cooler sports car. I wouldn’t be surprised if I see it in a movie or something. Its fit to do the job anyways.
