McLaren opts for car­bon fi­bre

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

MCLAREN’S MP4-12C ar­rives in spring at £168,500. It has a car­bon fi­bre chas­sis and a 592bhp (600ps) 3.8-litre en­gine. Per­for­mance fig­ures for the 1.3 ton car are awaited but CO2 comes in­side 300g/km. Antony Sher­iff, MD of McLaren Au­to­mo­tive said: “To de­liver a true McLaren sports car, and, frankly, a rea­son to ex­ist among great com­pe­ti­tion, it was clear we needed a unique con­cept that of­fered tan­gi­ble ad­van­tages”. Hence the car­bon con­struc­tion.
