The 2013 McLaren 12C is an all new model based on the development of the spider model.

It has a revised gearbox, retuned "Intake Sound Generator", and does not change the CO2 emissions and fuel economy. As a result, the top speed increased by 2 mph and 0-124 mph and 0-186 mph times decreased.

The production of the 12C was discontinued in April 2014 as the company shifted its focus to its successor: the 650S.

Games

Need for Speed: World

The 12C was made available in Need for Speed: World on January 30, 2012 as a tier 3 car. Since August 22, 2012, it has been featured as an A class vehicle.

It is a competitive class A car focused on handling. It has great turn-in capability and has a slight oversteering tendency that is manageable. Its nitrous boost has a great strength too. It has enough power to keep up with the Porsche 911 GT3 RS and other high-performance Class A cars.

In seventh gear, the vehicle does feel less powerful, as its final gear is optimised for a high top speed.

The car is suitable for any race type. In comparison with the Lotus Evora, it has more power. It is less recommended for pursuits, as its weight compromises its durability against contacts.

Stock: 710 (A class) Maximum: 791 (S class)
