Unbelievably fast yet very comfortable an amazing car!!!

McLaren have used technology used to produce a superior ( to the Italian’s) product.
The carbon tub provides a lightweight and super still platform for the classic forged aluminium double wishbone suspension to work from. Hydraulically linked and computer controlled shock absorbers allow a superb ride and great roll resistance. All wrapped in a dramatic but subtle body.
The car is incredibly combining huge mid range torque (from the turbos) and a screaming (8,500 rpm) top end. It’s easily faster in a straight line that a Ferrari 458 or Lamborghini Hurracan).
My car has been faultless and had bulletproof reliability over 6yrs and 26k miles.
The 12C is a ground breaking car and soo much cooler than the Italian competition.
