McLaren 50 12C and 12C Spider announced, priced from £196,000

McLaren has announced limited edition 12C and 12C Spider to mark 50 years of McLaren. A maximum of 50 examples of each of the 12C and 12C Spider are to be built with prices set at £196,000 and £215,500 respectively.

The McLaren 50 12C and McLaren 50 12C Spider feature a remodelled front bumper, which provides increased levels of front downforce, and is inspired by the limited-run HS Edition models, to create a more dynamic visual impact.

The lower section of the colour-coded bumper, framing the air intakes, is constructed from carbon fibre, while the front floor is made from race-derived carbon Kevlar. A black McLaren F1-inspired heritage badge is also fitted on the bonnet.

Inside boasts a full leather upgrade, and an anniversary dedication plate on the driver’s door which highlights the limited run.

The special edition model is available one of three colour finishes – Carbon Black, Supernova Silver or heritage McLaren Orange.

All this rides on bespoke McLaren 50 Ultra Lightweight wheels finished in Satin Black, measuring 19-inch at the front and 20-inch at the rear.

Under the bonnet is the same familiar twin-turbo 616bhp 3.8-litre V8 mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
