Test Drive with the new McLaren 12c Coupe

30 seconds behind the wheel of the new McLaren coupe, and you will realize that this coolest production car on the planet! It’s unique build was designed by engineers from the ground up for performance. To start with, McLaren uniquely designed the cabin to sit within a carbon fiber tub. This innovation came as a result of McLaren’s racing experience. McLaren is the only production car manufacture whose primary focus is building professional race cars. That is why you will find an air brake stolen from McLaren’s Formula 1 race car.

I love driving this car! You get the sense that you truly are driving a race car. It backs a powerful 592 horsepower twin-turbo V8 engine and a dual-clutch transmission, which will take you up to 205 mph. The McLaren goes from 0 to 60 mph in just 3 seconds flat. It features a hydraulic suspension system that rides as smooth as a Rolls-Royce in normal mode and as stiff as an F1 car in track mode. With a price tag starting at $240,000, this car is not cheap, but I think it is the best street legal car you can buy!

Big thank you to The Collection in Miami Florida for loaning me the car! http://www.thecollection.mclaren.com/
