Limited Edition McLaren MP4-12C High Sport

We may have another few months before we see the McLaren P12, but here's something for McLaren fans looking for a little extra power - the MP4-12C High Sport. McLaren revealed its new upgraded MP4 earlier this week.

The MP4-12C High Sport is essentially a super-exclusive in-house tune. The modified supercar was designed by McLaren Special Operations. Not the quasi-governmental agency that it sounds like, MSO is the division of McLaren "responsible for the delivery of bespoke projects for McLaren sports cars." McLaren launched the division last August.

The MP4-12C High Sport gets both mechanical and aerodynamic upgrades to provide an even livelier ride. The McLaren's 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine gets an extra 75 hp in HS application (up to 667 hp). The car also gets new front and rear bumpers, a larger diffuser, a modified rear wing and new wheels. We haven't seen any specs on how those upgrades will affect the MP4-12C's performance, but they can only help.

Only five examples of the MP4-12C HS will be built, and they've all been sold already. According to Auto Evolution, McLaren chairman Ron Dennis and the crown prince of Bahrain are among the five lucky customers.
