The 2011 McLaren 12C, also previously known as the 2011 McLaren MP4-12C, is a supercar that appears in all main titles of the Forza series since Forza Motorsport 3 except Forza Horizon 3.
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 3.8L twin-turbocharged V8 engine. It is also the first model in McLaren's "Super Series" model range, succeeded by the McLaren 650S in 2014.
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.
When you are driving a McLaren nobody needs to remind you that they help the record for fastest accelerating car in the world longer than any other manufacturer. One look or one drive in the MP4-12C will resolve any reservations about this cars looks or performance. This car means business in every aspect, and don’t expect to be bored by its potential anywhere on the road.
The 12C features McLaren's new 3.8L (3,799 cc) twin-turbocharged V8 engine, codenamed M838T; variations of this engine are used in all subsequent McLaren road cars, including the McLaren P1 with an M838TQ and the McLaren 570S with an M838TE. This engine was redeveloped into a 4.0L version named the M840T for the McLaren 720S, the successor to the 650S. Pre-2013 models produce a power output of 592 hp (441 kW) and 443 ft·lb (600 N·m) 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 (97 km/h) 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), above the claimed top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h).
