We’ve discovered that there have actually been 10 McLaren MP4-12C High Sport models created – and one is up for grabs.
The MP4-12C High Sport adopted cues from Mclaren’s MP4-12C GT3 for its cosmetic makeover with a new nose, new back bumper, bigger air vents, new diffuser and new rear wing, all set off by a new set of bespoke alloys.
Under the skin McLaren turned up the dial on the 3.8 litre V8 to yield an extra 75bhp and create an MP4-12C that not only looks more aggressive but also has the edge on the stock 12C, although no figures have been given for the extra performance.
No we learn that the dealer who commissioned the MP4-12C High Sport didn’t just commission the 5 cars we know about, but actually ordered another five after the first five sold in quick sticks. Of those five extra cars four have already been sold – including one to a very high-profile footballer in Spain – with just one, a white MP4-12C High Sport, still up for sale.
So if you feel like treating yourself to the only High Sport left available – in lhd and at a price close to twice that of the standard MP4-12C – you’d better get a shake on.
