bow respect. My mate will be disappointed after wanting it but couldn't go at present. It looks fantastic.

These modern swoop cars look so much better without a front nos plate. 12c really ageing well as apiece of design. Very special if you can find a good one.

Great colour and looks mint.

These early McLarens are ageing so well - much less fussy design than the newer ones.

Agree with that, aside from the 720 which looks like it landed from outer space I think the rest are a bit overdone. I'll probably end up buying one of the 'modern ones' to get over the disappointment at a lack of 12c's mind smile

It really is a timeless design




The 650S was more in your face, and grabbed people’s attention

Below my previous 650S and 12C

Check out the Frank Stephenson documentary on Netflix. “Chasing Perfect”.

He talks about how he had the animal kingdom in mind, perfectly streamlined and functional with no added bulk (unlike his previous 430 design where the company required it deliberately to have bulges for the sake of style).

Confirms you weren’t serious about buying it then surely ?
Not at all. If a dealer doesn’t get back to me I’m very unlikely to ask again, unless they have something that I’ll not be able to source anywhere else.

It’s too suggestive of someone who just doesn’t care for me to want to do business with them, it implies I’m likely to be in for a real struggle if it has a problem.

Congrats, I’ve looked at that advert a hundred times, prob the best looking 12C I’ve seen. Don’t understand why it’s sat around so long, can only be the dealers rep.
Proof is in the pudding and I hope you have a great experience with it.
