When racecar engineers decide to re-enter the passenger car world, you want to document their return. Thats what this 2012 McLaren MP4-12C is all about. With ultra-low mileage and exceptionally well-preserved condition, this is your chance at a 200+ MPH time capsule supercar. Those who have a passion for racing have known about McLaren for a long time. They are at the forefront of engineering and innovation to put cars in the winners circle. So when they returned to road car production over a decade since the record-setting F1, the enthusiasts world took immediate notice. These initial MP4-12Cs were snapped up early, and were often put through their paces... but this example is well-preserved averaging barely over 1,000 miles annually. More than just ultra-low mileage, the way the sunlight dances across the factory Volcano Orange Metallic paint instantly showcase how the panels retain their precision fit. Theres also science behind this art. The design is the result of wind tunnel testing so that even the side mirror arm was scrutinized for efficiency. In fact, youll love the innovative details, including how the deploying rear spoiler also automatically becomes an air brake during performance driving. Its this race-bred technology that made the 12C an instant classic. The doors are another part of the beauty in engineering. They are not only lightweight, but also have the unique wing design shared with the F1. Also, unlike any other supercar, they open a path in the rocker panel to make it easier to get inside (while also showcasing the race-inspired carbon fiber monocell cabin.) As a true racecar for the streets, the interior is built with the driver in mind. Well-bolstered bucket seats, a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel, paddle shifters, plenty of carbon fiber trim, and a big tach directly in front of you are the kind of things that make this feel like a competition machine. But this also doesnt miss out on all the best luxury features. Satellite navigation, power seats, heated seats, power windows, power locks, cruise control, climate control, and an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth and upgraded Meridian Surround Sound system are all part of this premium package. Plus, a modern classic has all the best modern safety, including dual front airbags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes. And because this is such a low mileage machine, everything is so fresh that even the air bag warning sticker is still on the glovebox. Behind the cockpit is a lot of venting and slick carbon fiber covers. Beneath that is the true technological marvel of the 12C. The 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 is original to the car, and its why this one will always be in demand. The engineers at McLaren gave this the same consideration as the racecars, and so theres an instant rush from the turbochargers to make 0 to 60 mph disappear in 3 seconds. But more than just an amazing motor, they focused on the full performance experience. Even the undercarriage has been engineered for maximum wind efficiency. But the true party piece is this cars flexibility. The seven-speed dual-clutch transmission has Formula One-style paddle shifter for a true racecar control, but it can also shift itself when you just need to get though urban traffic. The same goes for the suspension. Its forged aluminum setup is a strong and lightweight to give you knife-edge accuracy, but its also adjustable to be more everyday enjoyable. The sale comes with the owners manual as well as maintenance records that show solid investments in keeping this supercar at its best. Youre looking at the return of a legend, preserved just how you want it. Call today!!!

Chassis # 023The 23rd Of 40 GT3's ProducedMultiple Blancpain Endurance Series Participant Campaigned by Boutsen Ginion RacingAlways Serviced By McLaren GT & Prepared By Boutsen GinionEligible For Up-To-The-Minute McLaren GT3 Spec UpdatesComprehensive Spares Package IncludedTo understand McLaren in a contemporary sense it is easiest to start from the beginning. In a time without so many regulatory hurdles, when the simple thought of wanting to go racing meant you did just that, and a Man from New Zealand who did it better than almost anyone. Bruce McLaren's career started in 1958, but little did he know that he started something in motorsport that has yet to end. From the very first M1A through the F1 GTR and right up through the Speedtail on the production line today, McLaren has a long rich history spawned by Motorsport with almost no interest in existing unless it can go racing, win, and put that same technology on the open road.The McLaren GT program was established in 2011 in an effort to pickup where the F1 GTR program left off as McLaren's first foray into GT motorsport since the F1. It took the then newly released MP4 12C road car and further developed it into a homologated FIA GT3 specification racecar. Eligible for both LMS and other series throughout the world such as the Blancpain Endurance and Sprint Series. McLaren's newly established GT program provided factory support, parts, service, as well as a trackside presence and an active factory effort to win. The MP4 12C GT3 utilized much of the original cars carbon fiber monocoque and various already well-engineered components. Various upgrades and changes to the M838T Twin Turbo Engine. A bespoke Sequential 6-speed transmission developed with Ricardo that is 176 pounds lighter than the original. Perhaps the most interesting aspect is the amount of F1 technology utilized right down to the MP4-24 F1 steering wheel. In short, a comprehensive redesign with the specific purpose to go racing, win, and be reliable while doing so.The car on offer, chassis # 23 was delivered new to Boutsen Ginion Racing by McLaren GT in 2012. The car was entered in the 2012 Blancpain Endurance series as car #15, the number it would wear throughout its racing career. It was raced again in the Blancpain Endurance Series in 2013 and 2014. Additionally it also competed in the Baku World Challenge-FIA GT Finale multiple times. Chassis #23's last competitive GT race under Boutsen Ginion Racing was in November of 2014 with now LeMans Winning Porsche factory driver Kevin Estre behind the wheel at the Baku World Challenge where the car finished 18th overall due to suspension trouble.While the car received top care and service during it's campaigning with Boutsen Ginion Racing, major engine and transmission overhauls need completing approximately every 8,000KM per McLaren GT's specifications. 1,000KM before it was sold Chassis #23 was fitted with Engine #026 in July of 2014 and transmission # M114 fitted in April of 2014 both from McLaren. The car is relatively fresh in terms of these components and not in need of major replacement or servicing beyond normal race preparation and service.In the fall of 2015 chassis #23 was offered for sale for the first time to the public and acquired by a collector in CA who ran the car on occasion on a few west coast track to keep it operational. At the time of the sale Chassis #23 showed 17,678 KM. More recently, LBI Limited ran the car at M1 Concourse in Pontiac, MI for filming and promotional material. The car ran strong albeit with a learning curve, but overall very impressive with all systems functioning as intended, with trackside preparation and support was provided by RM Motorsport of Wixom, MI. Though it should be noted that to be competitive again proper preparation is likely needed, as with any car of this specification. To that point, McLaren GT currently offers an up-to-date current spec for FIA GT3 for 150,000 pounds should the next owner decide they want to put the car through it's paces once more in competitive racing series.Offered with the Sale is a comprehensive spares package as catalogued in the PDF in the “View Documents” button, valued at more than $75,000. With only 40 examples produced, still viable as a competitive GT3 contender, with documented racing history by notable drivers, and McLarens example of what it is still capable of after 15+ years of being dormant; the MP4 12C GT3 is rare, capable and collectible.Please visit www.LBILimited.com for many more photos and details.
