The luxury tuners are back with a program that gives the McLaren some added juice and a fresh new look.
Famed for their supercar tuning projects that includes the Audi
R8 GT, Lamborghini
Murcielago, Ferrari 599 GTO
and 458 Italia, Maserati GranTurismo
, and Aston Martin
has returned with a new program for the McLaren MP4-12C
. Dubbed 'Toxique Evil,' their latest tuning kit, made up of performance and styling enhancements, adds more weight to their already impressive reputation as one of the top tuning companies around.
First up, the McLaren
's steering and overall handling has been improved by lowering the supercar's PCC complex electronic hydraulic suspension system by 25mm. A Trim-Line-Design stripe that runs along the length of the MP4-12C dresses the exterior and it sits on a new set of 20- and 21-inch ultralight-forged alloys wrapped in Continental Sport Contact 5P tires. Wheelsandmore also took the 3.8-liter V8 bi-turbo engine, optimized the car's control electronics and added a handcrafted exhaust system with remote-able exhaust valves.
As a result the supercar's output has increased from 600hp and 443lb-ft of torque to 666hp (hence Toxique Evil) and 472lb-ft of torque. That's some sinister power under the hood, but obviously not menacing enough for the luxury tuning outfit who are working on a turbo and intercooler upgrade that will bump up the power to a wicked 800hp.
