The 2011 McLaren 12C is a supercar that appears in all main titles of the Forza series since Forza Motorsport 3 but does not appear in Forza Horizon 3. It also appears in various E3 2017 gameplay footages of Forza Motorsport 7.[1]

Originally called the McLaren MP4-12C, the 12C is McLaren's first in-house-developed car since the 1993 McLaren F1 and the first McLaren car to be developed fully in-house, with a new 3.8 L twin-turbocharged V8 engine. It is also the first model in McLaren's "Super Series" model range, succeeded by the McLaren 650S in 2014.

Description Edit

When the last car your company produced was widely considered to be the greatest road car ever made, the McLaren F1, you have some big shoes to fill. While the F1 was designed to have no peers, the MP4-12C takes aim directly at the Italian and German competition with an innovative new all-carbon fiber chassis and a turbocharged V8 developed in-house at McLaren. Tuned for maximum low-end torque, the MP4 can bring all 442 ft-lbs. to bear at a low 2,000 RPM, which means the MP4 has rocketship launch characteristics. One look at the huge, deep side inlets and the high-mount exhaust bores should tell you the new McLaren means business. Lewis Hamilton thinks so; McLaren’s ace F1 driver likes the MP4-12C so much he appears as the voice of the car in Pixar’s computer-animated film Cars 2.


The 12C features McLaren's new 3.8 L (3,799 cc) twin-turbocharged V8 engine, codenamed M838T; variations of this engine are used in all current (post-2010) McLaren road-going models today. Pre-2013 models produce a power output of 592 HP (600 PS) and 442 lb-ft (599 Nm) of torque. The car features a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shifting.

The McLaren 12C is capable of doing 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of over 205 mph (330 km/h). Later models update the top speed to 219 mph (352 km/h), despite the official claim of 207 mph (333 km/h).
