The news this week that McLaren is responding to customer, dealer and media feedback by tweaking its MP4-12C to make it more 'involving' coincided (more or less inevitably) with Woking dishing out a whole new load of shiny press images.

Many of these we've already brought you in our original story, but there was one particular photo that we thought deserved a spot of extra-special attention. Because although some have suggested that the MP4-12C lacks a wee bit of 'emotional appeal' it's hard to imagine that doing this in a Mercury Red Macca would leave you feeling cold. In fact it looks like rather considerable fun.

Here's hoping that McLaren's tweaks make the MP4-12C as fun as it looks like it ought to be...

    Does look nice, a toned down colour suits the car's more subtle design.

    Wait, a wall paper of an 'ugly boring soulless car'?

    I know its just a wee simple thing, but wouldn't giving it a better name; you know, something that doesn't sound so much like a washing machine give it a bit more character and soul?

    Just a teeny bit?

    Because the numbers 458 or 599 have character and soul do they..............scratchchin



    IMO for that reason this whole "name sounds boring" is just irrelevant waffle






    Great pic of the week though, love the capture of the heat haze out back.
