If a sportscar is too pedestrian for you, and you have an extra couple of million bucks lying around at home, then you might just want to consider getting yourself a supercar.
The long-awaited McLaren MP4-12C is the follow up to the iconic McLaren F1 from seventeen years ago, and at £168,500 (UK retail price), is almost reasonable considering how it's built like cars that usually cost twice as much.
According to the press releases, the 12C "runs on a sophisticated hydraulic suspension set-up and is powered by a brand new McLaren-designed V8 engine and dual-clutch gearbox" and has "crisp throttle response, almost total absence of lag and incredible 8500rpm redline is all down to clever matching of the ECU mapping and turbo geometry". For those who don't speak 'car', it basically means that the 12C is very fast, very light, handles like a dream, and is very quiet.
Technicalities aside, the only complaint that anyone could really have is that, for something that's branded as a supercar, it looks remarkably like a Lamborghini, which, while an amazing car in its own right, is definitely no supercar.
Not that we'd be getting this car anytime in the near future in Asia, but it's certainly nice to fantasise driving one of these babies down the highway!
