Powered by a turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 with 592hp and 440lb-ft of torque, the EPA has given the car a rating of 15/22 mpg city/highway. As Inside Line reported, this figure will allow it to avoid that extra tax.
That's the good news. The bad news is that potential U.S. buyers will need to wait some more time until deliveries begin. As of now, McLaren stated they'll arrive in early January, but that's only if no other problems arise. With a base price of $231,400, we have no doubt that buyers could easily afford the gas guzzler tax, but we're sure they're more interested in being sure their new supercar arrives without any glitches.
