McLaren planning to introduce one new model per year for the next five years

In order to achieve a total production of 4,500 units, McLaren is set to introduce one model per year for the next five years. These words came from McLaren North American chief Tony Joseph who also added that the British manufacturer already built a prototype of an upcoming vehicle.

Currently, McLaren plans to sell 1,000 units of the MP4-12C in its first year of production, but due to the demand for this car it appears that this number will be easily achieved.

For those who don’t know, the McLaren MP4-12C is powered by a 3.8-liter twin turbo petrol engine delivering an impressive 441 kW (592 bhp / 600 PS) at 7,000 rpm and 599 Nm (442 lb-ft) from 3,000 rpm.

It can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3 seconds and has a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph). The engine is mated to a 7-speed double clutch gearbox prompted by F1-style aluminum rockers situated behind the steering wheel.

With the launch of the new and improved McLaren MP4-12C, McLaren Automotive has once again established its position in the luxury vehicle industry. According to McLaren Managing Director Antony Sheriff, McLaren is naturally dedicated to further improving its offerings, believing that customers deserve the best from the company.

The McLaren MP4-12C was uniquely designed with innovation that provides excellent driving experience and state-of-the-art delivery. Sheriff believes that with the upgrades on the vehicle, drivers can enjoy a better experience.

McLaren MP4-12C is built with the Intake Sound Generator (ISG), which controls the engine intake noise within the cabin at various levels depending on what Powertrain mode the vehicle is currently in.

The Normal, Sport, and Track Powertrain modes offer a more dramatic touch as the engine noise in the cabin changes with applied throttle power and increased revs. Furthermore, through the electronic menu in the instrument cluster, the 2013 specification allows users to select the engine noise level produced in each mode.
