Video: Jay Leno reviews the new McLaren MP4-12C
The man with the bluest jeans is at it again. Seriously, Jay, get some new clothes and let us take our turn in your fabulous rides!. Anyway, Jay Leno made his way to the Pebble Beach Concours last weekend and, not surprisingly, was able to get behind the wheel of the new McLaren MP4-12C sports car. He didn’t actually get to drive the car, but he was still able to provide a few more details on it. And, apparently, he thinks highly of the beautiful car.
The MP4-12C made its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed just last month where it attacked the Supercar Run with its 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. The car goes from 0 to 124mph in under 10 sec and then back to 0 in under 5 sec. The quarter mile is made in around 11 sec.
