@ Tony. Mp4 has been used by mclaren for all of their f1 stuff for a while. The 12 is some criteria they rate vehicles on and the C is for carbon. Pretty stupid name but it actually means something. Have a google it will explain more(and prob better)

Y'all watch Top Gear too much.

@Tajul I agree. It doesn't look bad it's just a bit (I'm going out on a limb here) boring looking except from the back really

Perfect Halloween car. It looks like a jack o lantern!!!

In my truest opinion...the looks are too generic for a supercar. Now Ferrari with the 458 has taken some risks in the aesthetics of their car, but it's deniably brilliant looking.

Is this the only color this car comes in? I'd like to see some variety of colors..

I love this car. McLaren impressed me with this car.

Well even though the Murcielago SV's is really just a big exhaust tip and it's actually the same size as the original Murcielago's...but whatever :/
Andy Rogers Oct 09, 2011
@Dale You're dang right! HUGE single-exhausts all the way!
Dale Fredriks Oct 08, 2011
Nah, the lambo LP670-4 sv's was better. Or the zonda.
Miguel Longoria Oct 08, 2011
Probably the best tailpipe integration I've ever seen on a production car.
