Brake heavily at speeds over 95kph and the 12Cs active Airbrake instantly deploys. Combating the pitching forces of heavy braking, the Airbrake improves stability, increases downforce at the rear of the car and enhances the effectiveness of the rear brakes. It also reduces the 12Cs braking distance by up to 20 metres, giving you the confidence to drive faster and brake later.
An Incredible Finish
Mixed by hand. Painted by hand. Finished to perfection. Our 3-stage, Formula 1 inspired paint technology ensures the colour, tint, lustre and finish of the 12Cs paintwork is flawless. It also keeps the paint weight to an absolute minimum.
Many of our Special and Elite paint finishes contain a higher level of metallic and pearlescent content. Using exclusive pigments and a greater holographic effect, these highly crafted finishes compliment the cars aero-led design by accentuating every line, curve and contour of the body.
Lighter. Stronger. Faster.
Reducing wheel weight is more effective than removing weight from any other part of the car, which is why we obsess over every detail of our wheels. Mass is stripped. Strength is increased. Performance is enhanced.

Our distinctive running lights use the latest LED technology to defuse light through three grills, echoing the McLaren speed mark.
INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY. UNMATCHED PERFORMANCE.
The 12C is the first McLaren designed and built production car since the legendary F1. A pure McLaren, its innovative design and Formula 1 inspired technologies make it one of the most versatile and potent supercars on the road.
CARBON FIBRE MONOCELL
We pioneered the use of carbon fibre in Formula 1 and in production road cars. Our knowledge and experience of carbon fibre is unrivalled and our success with it is unmatched. For over 30 years, every car we have made has had carbon fibre at its core.
It took 4,000 hours to make each carbon fibre chassis on the McLaren F1. Twenty years of innovation later, it takes just 4 hours to produce the MonoCell at the heart of the 12C.
