2012 MCLAREN MP4-12C


  • A well-specified example of the marque’s first modern-day supercar, presented in excellent overall condition and with very low mileage from new.
  • It is powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine, delivering 616bhp to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shift.
  • The odometer displays just 13,978 miles, which is fully supported by the car’s maintenance history.
  • This MP4-12C is covered by a full Platinum Plus warranty until February 2024 for added peace of mind.


  • This McLaren was specified with white paintwork and a number of contrasting carbon-fibre items, including the door mirror casings, the rear diffuser, the side air intakes, the front splitter, and the engine cover.
  • Inside, the cabin is trimmed in red leather and black Alcantara, with a carbon-fibre centre console, steering wheel, and door card inlays.
  • Factory-fitted equipment includes cruise control, dual-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors and a Meridian sound system.
  • It rides on its original 19-inch lightweight forged alloy wheels, which are finished in black and frame a set of red brake callipers.
  • The car is supplied with a McLaren Service and Warranty book as well as two keys.
  • The cherished registration ‘804 ABU’ is not included, and the car will revert to an age-related number plate upon its sale.


  • There is no known bodywork damage.
  • The original white paintwork is described by the vendor as being in excellent overall condition, with no significant marks or blemishes.
  • The alloy wheels are also in great shape, with only one minor chip on the offside rear wheel, which is visible upon close inspection.
  • Moving inside, the original leather and Alcantara-trimmed interior is very smart, with only minor creasing to the driver’s seat bolster and no noticeable wear to any touchpoints or switchgear.
  • The car is in sound running order, with no known faults or warning lights on the dashboard.
  • Its last MOT test was conducted on 24 October 2020 at 12,377 miles, when the car registered a clean, first-time pass – as it has every year to date.
