Jeremy Clarkson took the MP4-12C for a spin a few weeks ago on Top Gear
. He claimed, like many others, that the MP4-12C was much more scientifically advanced, faster, had better handling and was overall a significantly superior model. It just 'lacked soul'. His preference was for the 458, and he isn't alone. This has been the growing theme amongst car enthusiasts and the press. Well it looks like McLaren
has taken some considerable notice of the claim, immediately taking action with some tweaks to the MP4-12C. A new induction kit has been delivered to address the complaint that its sound was too muted.
