mclaren mp4 12c gets custom options carbon fiber

McLaren Special Operations is launching a range of custom options for the MP4-12C and the 12C spider, which will be on display first in Middle Eastern markets such as Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Carbon fiber pieces are added all over the car, replacing the hood, rear wing, and even the roof. A new carbon fiber front bumper is also added, along with small air vents on the top of the front wheel arches, and on the rear engine cover.

The interior of the car receives Alcantara and contrasting Volcano Orange stitching, matching the exterior paint color of the car. Matching Volcano Orange carbon fiber is also added to the inside of the doors, and center stack fascia. A small carbon fiber McLaren badge is fitted on the steering wheel as a nice finishing touch.

McLaren has already lent the middle east some special attention, releasing a promo video specifically for the region, that displays the 12C cruising through the desert followed by a map showing off where all middle-eastern McLaren dealerships are located.
