2 F1 World Champions, 1 Promo Video

The cynical side of me knows that there is about as much chance as a cold day in hell, that company-hired test drivers will speak badly of their test cars in a promo video.

But when you use two F1 world champions to endorse it (with Lewis saying "I'll take it!"), and perhaps more importantly, when the company in question is McLaren, the automotive gods that brought us the McLaren F1, then I prefer to believe that the MP4-12C is something truly special.

3.8-litre, twin-turbocharged V8 delivers 600bhp and 443lb ft of torque, in a car with a dry weight of only 1,300kg... Good lord... Drool over the rest of the specs here.
