The McLaren MP4-12C was McLaren’s first time back to the sports car market in a long time. It was an impressive beast and monstered some of the cars from Ferrari (performance wise).
The new McLaren MP4-12C is given its debut test at the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit by Horst von Saurma, Editor-in-Chief of Sport Auto. McLaren’s Nürburgring lap time of 7:28 was mighty quick. In fact it was five seconds quicker than Auto Bild‘s Ferrari 458 Italia run 7:33.
