McLaren 50 12C and 12C Spider models are fitted with the carbon ceramic brakes and will ride on bespoke McLaren 50 Ultra Lightweight wheels
McLaren to celebrate their 50th anniversary have introduced a limited edition version of their 12C model.
The McLaren 50 12C and McLaren 50 12C Spider are limited to a total of 50 shared between the two body styles. They feature a number of bespoke styling and specification enhancements, being produced by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), who are responsible for the delivery of bespoke projects, in conjunction with the McLaren Automotive design team led by Design Director, Frank Stephenson.
The key exterior revisions comprise a remodelled, CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics)-optimised front bumper from MSO, which is inspired by the limited-run HS Edition models. 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. Above the bumper, a black McLaren F1-inspired heritage badge, previously only available to MSO clients, is also fitted on the bonnet.
McLaren 50 12C and 12C Spider models are fitted with the carbon ceramic brakes and will ride on bespoke McLaren 50 Ultra Lightweight wheels finished in Satin Black, 19-inch at the front and 20-inch at the rear.
The interior is finished in full leather with branding to the carbon fibre sill panel and floor mats with an anniversary dedication plate on the driver’s door.
Each of the limited McLaren 50 models will feature a monogrammed black and silver car cover, limited edition key, carbon fibre presentation key box and a specially commissioned print signed by McLaren Automotive Design Director, Frank Stephenson.
The McLaren 50 12C costs £196,000 and £215,500 for the McLaren 50 12C Spider.Published 23 May 2013
