The revised McLaren MP4-12C features a power boost to 616bhp and will make its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed
15 June 2012

The revised 616bhp McLaren MP4-12C will be given its first public airing at the Goodwood Festival of Speed which runs from June 28 to July 1.

The upgrades – which were the result of direct customer feedback - include a 25bhp increase to 616bhp, plus a recalibrated seven-speed twin-clutch gearbox, and greater “aural drama” in the cabin of the McLaren MP4-12C.

Also new is the addition of a system that can raise the supercar’s ride height by 40mm at the front and 25mm at the rear at speeds of up to 37mph.

The revised McLaren MP4-12C – which hits showrooms in October – is priced from £176,000, representing a £7500 increase over the current car.

The McLaren 12C has extraordinary pace and handling, but is a touch clinical
