The McLaren MP4-12C is a sports car designed and manufactured by McLaren Automotive. The car's final design was unveiled on 8 September 2009, and it was launched in 2011. The MP4-12C features a carbon fibre composite chassis, and is powered by a mid-mounted McLaren M838T 3.8-litre V8 twin-turbo engine developing approximately 592 bhp (441 kW; 600 PS) and around 443 lb•ft (601 N•m) of torque. The car will make use of Formula 1-sourced technologies such as "brake steer”, where the inside rear wheel is braked during fast cornering to reduce understeer. Power will be transmitted to the wheels through a 7-speed Seamless Shift dual-clutch gearbox equipped with "Pre-Cog", which allows the driver to pre-select the next gear by half-pulling the paddle shifter behind the steering wheel, which allows the transmission to execute faster gear changes.
