A new McLaren hypercar that has the weirdest name ever. Coming out in 2011, the car has a carbon-fiber chasis and has an engine made by McLaren themselves unlike the last 2 cars they had (SLR and F1).

It will have a twin turbo 3.8litre V8 managing to get out 592 BHP from it and it will have some Formula 1 tech in it.

Dual clutch and obviously a flappy paddle gearbox.

The MP4 stands for McLaren Project 4, the chassis designation for all McLaren Formula 1 cars since 1981

The '12' refers to McLaren's internal Vehicle Performance Index through which it rates key performance criteria both for competitors and for its own cars.

And C is for Carbon since the car is mostly build out of, carbon fiber.
Forget what you know about sports cars.

The McLaren MP4-12C might not have the highest top speed, but it will surely wreck a Veyron in a proper track.
