McLaren announced today that theMP4 12C sports car will make its public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July and that it will go on sale next spring with prices between £125,000 and £175,000.

The company also announced that over 2,500 people expressed interest in buying the 12C and have already registered for the vehicle. This is a huge demand considering the company only has 1000 units planned for the first year: "The UK, along with the USA, will be McLaren’s biggest market, and initial interest in the UK for the 12C already exceeds the first year’s allocation. A full model range of high-performance, two-seat, mid-engine McLaren sports cars will be completed by the middle of the decade."

Of the 19 countries, and 35 retailers, launching McLaren Automotive, the UK, USA, and Germany will be the company’s biggest markets for the 1,000 12Cs planned for production in 2011. Between 300 and 400 cars are planned for North America, 400 to 500 for Europe (70 percent to UK and Germany), and 100 to 200 each for the Middle East/South Africa and Asia Pacific regions.

I would say that this vehicle is almost perfect. The styling was great plus the figure performance. I was simply captivated by the awesomeness of the car!

This is definitely an awesome vehicle. The speed performance of the car is quite impressive! The matte color look so handsome on the car. This would be a tough competitor of Aventador.

Agreed. I have seen its car reviewed on Top Gear and greatly this was the second fastest car being tested by the Stig. The speed of the car is quite impressive no doubt that it was made perfect by Science!

This car has an impressive speed performance. Although its not that sporty for it was designed based on Science still I was impressed with the power output! However, it seems that this car is cheaper compare to the Aventador.

Wow!The pricing of the car is cheap I thought i could be able to bought an Aventador with that money. However, its great to know that they are offering an affordable Mclaren car.

hard time to agree with the British.

nice i would rather choose this than the veyron.. they have almost the same performance but the price is way far from the veyron.

the 911 turbo has 100NM more torque and a lot more traction due to the rear engine and AWD.

The Light weight and performance are defining philosophies at McLaren. But outright power alone is of little significance if a car’s weight saps output or if that power is unmanageable and compromises the driving experience or results in unacceptable emissions.

To be honest, I would rather have a GT-R than the Mp4, and the remaining money will be used to upgrade and tune my GT-R.
