8. 2013 McLaren MP4-12C

2013-McLaren-MP4-12C-main1

The MP4-12C marks a return to road car production for McLaren. Aimed squarely at the Porsche 911 and Audi R8, the MP4-12C features a small 3.8 liter turbocharged V8 producing 616 hp.

Utilizing all the latest suspension, engine, brake and transmission technologies, the MP4-12C is a wholly capable sports car. In fact, this car is almost too capable. It does lack some of the visceral feel found in other cars on this list, but being one of the fastest, we’re still awed by it.

 

  • Reid Conti

    Doesn’t the LFA have a V10?

  • Mike Schlee

    Correct. Not sure how that slipped through. I have corrected it.

  • Alex

    Come on, a corvette on the first place and a 911 4s gets 9th place. Typical American top 10. The F12 is nowhere to be found, but you do find a Mazda rx-7.

  • Phil

    Best guess would be that THEY DIDN’T DRIVE THE F12.

  • From Kyoto

    Lol…As usuall at the first place an american car…how much they paid you ? :D

  • Alfie

    Um, it’s all new cars. The BRZ/FRS is almost two years old now.
