McLaren Coupe Reviews

Founded in 1989, British company McLaren Automotive brings Formula 1 technology to the cars they manufacture. They offer unique, high-powered cars that with a futuristic design. Apart from producing their own car models, McLaren has also been teaming up with other automotive powerhouses like Ford and Mercedes Benz to produce rides that dominate the market. McLaren's first ever car was a coupe called the McLaren F1 designed by Prof. Gordon Murray based on the Formula 1 race car technology. It was produced from 1992 to 1998, and during its last year of production it was considered the fastest road car in the world based on reviews. Driving tests clocked it at 231 miles per hour with a rev limiter on.

Since the release of the McLaren F1, the company has established itself as a top contender in the high-powered, luxury sports car category. Back in 1998, the car was sold for a whopping $970,000. Reviews on the McLaren F1 praised it for its unparalleled performance and exclusivity. At present, this McLaren coupe still remains as one of the fastest car ever made. In fact if you consider only engines that are naturally aspirated, the McLaren F1 is still the fastest production car in the world. Reviews and driving tests done on this McLaren coupe tallied a 0-60mph acceleration at 3.2 seconds.

At present, the current offering of McLaren in the coupe category is the MP4-12C. It is a very stylish, futuristic looking car that could be straight out of the movies. It is based on the high-technology that McLaren coupes are known for, paired with their high standards in terms of engine power and luxurious interiors. Many reviewers sing the praises of the McLaren MP4-12C's astounding acceleration, non-intrusive electronic driver aids and impressive handling limits. This McLaren coupe retails for $229,000, which is highly competitive considering its performance and good reviews. This car can compete with the bests in this category. Price-wise, its main contenders are Ferrari 458 Italia, Porsche 911 GTS RS and Lamborghini Gallardo.

The McLaren MP4-12C is a two-passenger car that does well in reviews. It offers such features as 19-inch front wheels paired with 20-inch rear wheels, active airbrake, adaptive suspension with three driving modes, manually adjustable seats, cruise control, leather upholstery, USB and iPod ports, bi-xenon headlights and power-folding, heated outside mirrors. It has a powerful twin-charged 3.8liter V8 engine that can produce a maximum of 592hp with 443lb-ft of torque. Safety features of the McLaren coupe are also praised in reviews. It includes front-side curtain and knee airbags, anti-lock disc brakes, traction and stability control, hill-start assist as standard.

McLaren coupes are impressive cars, highly-regarded in reviews for their performance and advanced technologies. They are the epitome of style and design, making cars that are undeniably sexy and suave: perennial head turners. If you're looking for a great luxury sports car that delivers both in terms of looks and performance, McLaren coupes should always be in your list. And now that newer models are being more and more affordable compared to the older cars, McLaren coupes would surely be more popular.
