McLaren MP4-12C Specs Revealed – 600 HP And 600 Nm
McLaren revealed the specs of the new MP4-12C. The British supercar develops 600 HP at 7,000 rpm and offers 600 Nm of torque between 3,000 – 7,000 rpm.
The McLaren officials have unveiled the technical specs of the European MP4-12C. The European McLaren MP4-12C delivers 600 HP and 600 Nm of torque. Now the first MP4-12C copies are leaving the production line of the Woking plant. Some body parts of the model are made of carbon fiber, so the front / rear weight distribution is close to the one of Ferrari 458 Italia.
The European version of MP4-12C is able to sprint from 0 to 100 kph in just 3.3 seconds. If Corsa tires are used, the 0-100 time drops with 0.2 seconds. The 0 – 200 kph sprint is made in 9.1 seconds, with standard tires, while the Corsa tires offer a time of 8.9 seconds. A lot of cars with sporty wet dreams are hitting 100 kph slower than McLaren MP4-12C does 200 with Corsa tires. The top speed is of 330 kph, which we believe is enough.
For those not so up to date with the McLaren supercar news, MP4-12C features a twin-turbo V8 engine. The unit has a displacement of 3,799 cc and a compression ratio of 8,7:1. Both the engine block and the cylinder heads are built of aluminium, for lower curb wight. The SSG seven gears transmission has a special configuration that allows extremely fast gear shifts and sends the power to the rear wheels through an open differential. The open differential is helped in the corners and in straights by the system that brakes the rear wheel on the inside of the corner for offering maximum stability and minimum grip loss.
