MP4-12C gets a new nose from McLaren Special Operations
The Windsor Castle Concours d’Elegance is an event sponsored by Bentley that no one really pays much attention to. In fact, it just took place on September 7th-9th and there wasn’t that much buzz about it at all. That being said, it looks like the show brought together some of the most impressive supercars currently available on the market.
One of these supercars is a McLaren MP4-12C, but it was no standard McLaren. This was a "special" MP4-12C that received a nose job from McLaren’s Special Operations division. Apparently, a number of clients were asking for more aggressive styling and so the company decided to give them what they were asking for.
The new nose was inspired by the exclusive High Sport version and includes a new color-coded front bumper made of carbon fiber with a carbon-Kevlar lower lip. McLaren also added revised vents and aerodynamic elements to replace the tire spoilers on the stock unit.
These new elements can either be ordered from the factory or installed on the already existing models upon the customer’s request. Price? Hasn’t even been announced yet.
