Renowned for its long and illustrious history in racing, notably as a Formula One team, McLaren sent shockwaves through the auto industry in 1993 with the launch of the F1, a race-inspired, street-legal supercar that was the fastest production car in the world at the time of its release. More than 19 years since the F1's unveiling, McLaren is again causing a stir amongst industry insiders with a new series of production model cars, beginning with the MP4-12C, a high-performance sports coupe. Check out our reviews below to learn more about McLaren and its Formula One technology-based road cars.
New for 2016, the 570S is designed in the classic mid-engine rear-wheel drive layout, with a modern carbon-fiber structure to keep it lightweight. Named 570S for the output of 570PS (562hp), it is motivated by a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine which will hit 60mph in a breathtaking 3.2 seconds.
A 641-horsepower sports car whose dazzling roadholding and thrilling acceleration will make any driver feel like a Formula One champion, the 650S is also a surprisingly civil road car, thanks to its twin-clutch transmission.
Showcasing an ultra-high performance hybrid powertrain capable of 903 total horsepower, the million-dollar McLaren P1 is an automotive tour de force and arguably one of the greatest supercars ever made.
McLaren 12C Spider Combining the same performance, handling and high-speed excitement as the original 12C, this convertible version provides even further thrills on roofless rides. Like its fixed-roof forebear, the 12C Spider features a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that rockets the roadster to a top speed of 204 mph.
McLaren MP4-12C Over 17 years since McLaren released its first production-model vehicle, the F1 sports coupe, the legendary British maker of Formula One cars is back with another street-legal supercar.
McLaren F1 Although only 106 of these super rare sports cars were ever produced, that hasn't stopped the McLaren F1 from reaching near legendary status in the automotive world—and for good reason. With a top speed of 240 mph, this British-made driving machine is still one of the fastest production cars in the world.
