    Is it a newer MP4-12C or the older model?

    Don't think McLaren skimped on the intercooler design. Tune though... definitely some room to push they do it themselves.

    Makes sense coming from such a wild company, I believe it.

    It isn't 100 whp, you looked at the difference between torque and hp.

    If I could afford one I would mod the $#@! out of it.

    Would you pay for a $10,000 a month subscription package on BimmerBoost if I gave you unlimited rep spread? Say yes.

    Thanks. The newer MP4 must be even crazier. Now if the car had a bit more appeal...

    I love this car as well... the technology and sound from the TT V8 is second only to a 458. The looks however in person especially in white make the car incredibly unimpressive.

    The Ford GT still looks fresh. Your friend has a good taste.

    As for the MP4, it's sexy. That's true. But something is missing in the design. Something breath taking. Something that the 458 is full of it.

    I used to strongly agree with you guys regarding the design. However, that is changing.

    The 458 is the better looking car. But... the MP4-12C just needs a little love to show it's potential:
