McLaren showed up to the Pebble beach Concours d’El�gance in July 2011 with the announcement of its McLaren Special Operation Program - a program that would offer their customers the chance to customize their MP4-12C in any way they desire. The first model to receive the special treatment was an MP4-12C in a Volcano Orange exterior finish and now we have the second model to don the changes. The second MP4-12C to receive these modifications is called the High Sport and features exterior and interior updates, as well as an extra 75 HP.
Clearly, the exterior benefited from the exquisite orange paint finish, but it also received a new rear bumper with rear vents inspired from the MP4-12C GT3 race car, an extended diffuser, and a modified active rear wing. The MP4-12C also received a redesigned front nose in order to maximize downforce. The extra 75 HP was achieved by increasing the airflow to the turbo intercoolers.
The McLaren MP4-12C High Sport is limited to only 5 units and is now available in Miami dealerships. McLaren hasn’t announced pricing for these special edition units, but expect to pay an extra 50%, at least, over the car’s standard price of about $230,000.
