Thank you for taking a look at another unique piece of fiveninedesign inventory. As you may or may not know, fiveninedesign takes pride in selling unique, rare, and bespoke vehicles across the globe. Taking pride in offering honest, drivable, and special vehicles, this 2012 McLaren MP4-12C Coupe is another great example of why we love what we do!
This highly optioned MP4-12C coupe came from the McLaren factory finished in Carbon Black with Carbon Black Napa Leather and Red Space Fabric interior. Red deviated stitching is in abundance as you look around the cockpit of this supercar, which ties into the Red Inserts in the seat and door panels. Instead of the standard Aluminum look trim for the interior, this car was custom ordered with a full Carbon Fiber interior package. Carbon Fiber runs on both doors, center console, as well as steering wheel. Upon opening the doors, the carbon pours onto the externally visible fender liners, and door sill plates. The car carries all of the creature comforts of a high end sedan, including heated power seats, NAV, Bluetooth, and the upgraded very expensive Meridian Sound System. It is truly outstanding. Although the Carbon Black looked menacing, we felt the car needed a refresh. The thought of wrapping the vehicle in an exclusive paint protection wrap made by Avery Dennison was too good. Being in this industry, and having a partnership with one of the nation’s leading Wrap Facilities, everything tied together. The car was wrapped by us, and I am not so sure anyone will be able to tell it is a wrap. This was done by the best, and is paint condition. The side markers were all tinted with DOT legal tint, as was the headlamps and tail lights. The goal was to remove as much color from the vehicle as possible, while still offering a unique color combination, and a pop of color (with the McLaren Orange Calipers). We even opted to keep the McLaren badges uninstalled, although we have them and will be included with the car. We had our in house powder coat shop take the factory Gloss Black Lightweight Forged wheels, and professionally refinish them in Satin Ghost Bronze. The same treatment was done to the Sport Exhaust Tips, which were originally silver. This makes for a beautiful symphony of colors, that compliment each other perfectly. Items to notate include a few scratches on the driver’s door, minor rock chips expected on a 15,000+ mile car, minor condensation on the headlamps (no longer visible with the wrap)
Mechanically, this McLaren is in phenomenal condition! The car was recently serviced by us, including a fresh fluid change, and preparation. Within the last 500 miles, the car received new Pirelli P-zero tires as well. We had an opportunity to have the software professionally updated my MASE Engineering, which provided the car an extra 90-110 horsepower, and similar torque gains. The results: this is a VERY fast McLaren MP4-12C. We have spent time with many of these McLarens, including the 675LT, 650S, and 570S, and can personally tell you that this car is as fast, or faster, than all of the models listed above. This car should be performing around the 710 HP Mark, with well over 530 Lb/Tq. This car should trap somewhere near 140MPH in the quarter mile, if not more. This is a SERIOUS machine. If the new owner was inclined, a few more mild upgrades would make this car perform on levels that no modern supercars perform at. We can assist with this, as it is our specialty. Mechanically, this car doesn’t need anything. It runs dead center on Water Temperature, and Oil Temperature. The sounds that come from the 3.8L V8 Twin Turbo motor are absolutely intoxicating. The transmission is one of the most seamless and accurate we have ever driven, and we have driven ALL exotic cars. We are still a Porsche centered business, and they will always have our heart, but this McLaren has opened our eyes to a whole new level of performance. Forget Lamborghini or Ferrari, it is much cooler to experience a street car built by a racing company, then a street car built by a street car company that builds race cars as well. If you don’t know much about these machines, and want to talk to us, please feel free to reach out. They are THAT good. We did have the OCS Recall performed in the seats by our service shop, and this has thrown an “Airbag Fault” code, which easily just needs to be updated by a McLaren Dealer Software Computer. Also, the LCD screens for the HVAC are dim, and to be perfect, would need to be addressed! This car is ready to drive across country, fast if desired. The car comes complete with the McLaren Quick Guide, and both Carbon Fiber Keys.
Contact us for inquiries, questions, concerns, or if you want to talk shop. This is the real deal, and one test drive, or test ride, would quickly make you realize that this car performs more diligently than anything you have ever been in. For the money, there is nothing on the market that can compare to the performance aspects, exotic aspects, and all over allure of the vehicle. Please feel free to reach out, or come see the car in person here in Jacksonville, FL.
