To celebrate 50 years of McLaren, the English automaker has created an anniversary model of their flagship vehicle called the “McLaren 12C” and “12C Spider“. Only 50 examples of both the 12C coupe and 12C Spider will be produced. So what exactly makes this anniversary edition car special?
The car itself was produced by McLaren Special Operations, a division of McLaren Automotive that is responsible for bespoke projects. A remodelled CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics)-optimised front bumper from MSO is just the start of the special features on the 50 12C. This front bumper increases downforce in the and is gives the front-end more visual impact. Right above this new bumper is a black McLaren F1-inspired badge that was previously available only to MSO clients. Bespoke McLaren 50 Ultra Lightweight wheels are also fitted to the car, which save weight and look incredible.
Inside the car is an interior decked out with a full leather upgrade with subtle badges branded to the carbon fiber sill panel and floor mats. A 50th anniversary dedication plate is also located on the driver’s door, making sure everyone knows how rare this car truly is.
The McLaren 50 12C and McLaren 50 12C Spider will be available in either Carbon Black, Supernova Silver or heritage McLaren Orange. Expect to pay $253,400 for the coupe version and $278,600 for the spider.
