Now that the McLaren P1 has been revealed to the public, the company’s “entry level” offering, the MP4-12C, is old news, right? Sure, it’s quite fast (just not P1 fast), and it’s available as a hardtop convertible, but it’s destined to live under the P1’s massive shadow. That’s just the lot in life of cars that aren’t their makers’ flagships.
Or is it? While the OEMs are understandably reluctant to build hotter versions of their junior models for fear of undermining the senior models’ sales and cachet, tuners are subject to no such encumbrances. With that in mind, Vorsteiner presents the MP4-12V.
