To mark 50 years of McLaren performance, the British automaker has announced a 100-unit production run of limited edition 50 12C and 50 12C Spider models. 

The special edition models will sport a number of bespoke styling and specification enhancements to make them unique, all of which have been produced by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) along with McLaren Automotive Design Director Frank Stephenson.

Changes to the 50 12C and 12C Spider include a revised front bumper with increased levels of front downforce inspired by the limited-run HS edition models. The lower section of the bumper is constructed from carbon fiber while the front floor is made from carbon Kevlar. On the hood is a black McLaren F1-inspired heritage badge, previously only available to MSO clients.

The 50 12Cs will also come with carbon ceramic brakes as standard with unique 19-inch (front) and 20-inch (rear) McLaren 50 Ultra Lightweight wheels in Satin Black. The wheels offer over 4 pounds of weight savings over the optional super-lightweight wheels.

On the inside, the limited production 12Cs get a full leather upgrade while an anniversary dedication plate highlights the driver’s door. Color options for the cars includes Carbon Black, Supernova Silver, and McLaren Orange. Lastly, McLaren 50 logos can be found on the carbon fiber turning vanes.

Each vehicle will come with its own monogrammed black and silver car cover, limited edition key, carbon fiber presentation key box, and a specially commissioned print signed by Frank Stephenson.

Retail pricing for the McLaren 50 12C is £196,000 ($295,000) while the Spider will be £215,500 ($325,000).
