McLaren MP4-12C: exclusive preview

McLaren has used its 44 years of Grand Prix experience to help craft the 600bhp 3.8-litre MP4-12C and we're offering you an exclusive preview of it at the company's hi-tech HQ in Woking.

The successor to the mighty F1 supercar can blast from 0-125mph in less than 10 seconds, and will cost around 166,666. First deliveries are expected next spring.

In to battle
This mid-engined two-seater will take on the Ferrari 458 Italia and Lamborghini Gallardo so just how will the British contender fare against these Italian stallions? What Car? is looking for five readers to give their verdict in an exclusive preview to be held at McLaren's Woking HQ.

The preview will take place on Friday, September 3, from 11am-2pm, and will include a light lunch. Along with representatives from McLaren's PR team, the car's top designers and engineers will also be present to talk about the car and answer any questions.

We'll be asking for your views on the car's design, ergonomics and specification your comments will be published in What Car? magazine, along with photos of you with the car. You'll also be asked to speak briefly to camera for footage on

Please note that this is a static viewing of the car you won't be able to drive it at this event.
