McLaren begins work on the first production MP4-12C
Feb 2, 2011
The first production version of McLaren's eagerly anticipated MP4-12C has begun to take shape at the British firm's headquarters in Surrey.
'Chassis 01' is being assembled at McLaren's Technology Centre while the purpose-built £40m Production Centre moves into the final stages of construction before its scheduled completion in May.
The company plans to build 1000 examples of its new supercar in 2011 following a successful public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last year.
