► McLaren MP4-12C Test Drive by Jenson Button
The first MP4-12C production car entered the McLaren Technology Centre
(MTC) General Assembly Hall in Woking, England. A new £40m manufacturing
facility, the McLaren Production Centre (MPC) is currently under
construction adjacent to the MTC site, and will open in spring 2011.
McLaren Automotive will transfer production of the 12C from the existing
MTC assembly line to the MPC in April. A range of premium carbon-based
high-performance sports cars from components that are bespoke, innovative
and unique, will then start to be distributed to a dedicated network of 35
retailers in 19 countries around the world. With the new McLaren Production
Centre fully operational, it is anticipated that McLaren will build up to
4,000 cars across its model range annually by the middle of the decade, a
figure that will account for between three and four percent of the annual
global market for premium sports cars.
McLaren F1 #038 driven hard at Bruntingthorpe
Dan Kennedy driving his McLaren F1 (#038) at an airport. Does some pretty
cool spinning and acceleration. Love the sound of that engine!
And to everyone who says he can't drive:
1) The car has no power steering.
2) The car is VERY powerful, and the wheels spin easily.
3) He's at an airport, not on a road. He can do spins if he wants.

Monaco Grand Prix in 1992! In my video you will find some exclusive images
from inside the historic villa that hosted the car, images which you will
find only in my channel!! I want to thank Erik for letting me enter!
This meeting has been an immense experience for me: 19 McLaren F1s were
there including 5 GTRs!! Plus a bunch of MP4-12Cs! But I have to say that
the F1 in all its specs still looks like a proper modern car, much more
than what I was expecting it to be!
