Publicly unveiled in September 2009, the mid-engined MP4-12C commenced manufacture at McLaren’s new state-of-the-art factory at Woking in mid-2011, just after production of the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren model had ceased. Its stylist was Frank Stephenson, who had been recruited from Alfa Romeo Centro Stile following spells with Ferrari and FIAT. Like its F1 and SLR predecessors, the MP4-12C used a carbon-fibre MonoCell body tub, albeit one that now took considerably less time to produce thanks to advances in composites manufacturing technology. This time the occupants’ two seats were arranged conventionally side by side, unlike the F1’s unusual three-abreast layout, which placed the driver in the centre, though the use of dihedral doors maintained a familial link with the F1. Presented here for auction is this beautiful McLaren MP4-12C delivered new to its first owner by McLaren Knightsbridge, London and first registered in March 2012. Finished in sparkling Ice Silver with black leather upholstery and matching black carpets, carbon roof and upgrades included electric memory seats, upgraded sound system and the latest RSR software for the II Iris information centre. Offered from a private collection of landmark collectable cars, this McLaren has been dry stored correctly and well maintained over the years with a comprehensive, mostly McLaren main agent service record. This spectacular example is offered with a history file which includes the original service book stamped up-to-date with the most recent maintenance carried out by McLaren prior to the sale. Also in the file is the original hand-book, supporting invoices, tracker paperwork, old MOTs with the most recent MOT showing 34,393 miles, no advisories and valid until June 22 and the current V5c ready for transfer. Innovative, attractive, rapid and fast becoming highly sought after, market commentators are tipping the model that marked the return of this legendary British manufacturers modern Supercar line-up to be a must have in any noteworthy classic car collection.
