The 2013 McLaren MP4-12C is an all new model based on the development of the spider model.
It has a revised gearbox, retuned "Intake Sound Generator", and does not change the CO2 emissions and fuel economy. As a result, the top speed increased by 2 mph and 0-124 mph and 0-186 mph times decreased.
The production of the MP4-12C was discontinued in April 2014 as the company shifted its focus to its successor: the 650S.
Need for Speed: World
The MP4-12C is a competitive Class A car focused on handling. It has great turn-in capability and has a slight oversteering tendency that is manageable. Its nitrous boost has a great strength too. The MP4-12C has enough power to keep up with the Porsche 911 GT3 RS and other high-performance Class A cars.
In seventh gear, the vehicle does feel less powerful, as its final gear is optimised for a high top speed. As a result, the MP4-12C reaches a top speed of 212 mph (342 km/h). With nitrous applied, it can hit 237 mph (382 km/h).
