Hamann MemoR based on McLaren Mp4-12C

Article by Christian A., on October 30, 2012

Hamann unveiled today the Mclaren Mp4-12C “memoR”, an exquisitely colourful piece of art based on the well-known supercar. Although the McLaren Mp4-12C is already an awesome supercar, Hamann decided that it can improve the design and added stylistic borrowings from the 1995 winner at LeMans, the McLaren.

As a result, the front end was modified and received new carbon mudguards, air outlets and expressive front apron replacing the original components. Moreover, Hamann added a new set of LED daytime running lights as well as a new carbon front spoiler. The kit also includes new side aprons and larger air inlets on the flanks but also a new carbon bonnet.

The rear end includes a new wing, new rear apron with recesses for the three tailpipes of the exhaust system. The design is completed by the "UNIQUE FORGED formula" forged rims wrapped in high performance tires. Regarding the interior, Hamann promises that it will modify it in order to match the needs of the customers. Pricing for the conversion of the McLaren MP4-12C starts at 95.000, - Euro plus tax.

The Carbon MonoCell is the core of the latest McLaren. The brand introduced carbon fiber composite materials in the manufacturing of the 1981 Formula 1 MP4/1 model. This established a trend that teams in Formula 1 follow. The 1993 McLaren F1 is where McLaren got its carbon fiber idea and incorporated it to road vehicles for the first time. From this familiarity with the carbon fiber framework, the new model was built with similar precise standards, but with enhanced dimensions.

Up to the present, carbon framework is being used in the domain of luxury cars. This type of vehicle is one acquired by exceptionally wealthy customers. The price is determined by the intricacy of carbon fiber chassis styling and dimensions.

However, the 12C shifts the scene by establishing the convenience of carbon composite. For one, it is lighter in mass, greater in durability and better in torsional rigidity. Another, it is more economical through its ground-breaking manufacturing as a one-piece component. Carbon fiber chassis has never been manufactured in this manner before.

Aside from this advantage, the 12C MonoCell also provides essential manufacturing possibility that shape the foundation of the vehicle’s unrivaled style. It was made to make way for a slimmer overall form which is partly responsible for a more compact vehicle. The rationale for the development is to provide a more relaxed road drive and better driving experience.

Another feature of the model, aside from its carbon chassis, is its power productivity and the ratio of its balance to power and torque-to-weight. Moreover, the Proactive Chassis Control structure provides revolutionary handling with ease. Its occupant packaging was also optimized to increase daily comfort and convenience.
