Volcano Red over black with Diamond Cut forged wheels. Clean Carfax, all service records (100% McLaren dealership maintained), and just completed 6 year full service. 100% garaged and meticulously maintained. Sports Exhaust, Front End Lift system, Soft Close Doors, 3M Clear Bra, IRIS 2 upgrade, over $13,000 in Carbon Fiber, and much more. $125,000.

Abbreviated options/features list: *= optional additions

*McLaren Warranty with Roadside Assist through February 2021

*Sport Exhaust

*Front end lift

*Soft Close Doors

*IRIS 1 replaced with brand new IRIS 2 Sat Nav and Meridian Surround System.

*Electric and Heated Memory seats

*Elite Color, Volcano Red

*Lighweight Forged Wheels

*Clear Bra paint protection

*Recent Ceramic Coating.

*Carbon Fiber Interior, Turning Vanes, Sill Panels, and Engine Cover

*Stealth Pack



Mid mounted 3.8 liter V8, 618 HP

McLaren Pro-Active Chassis Control

Four Zone alarm system

Passive rollover protection system

Standard, side head, and knee airbag system

This particular 12C is the car you want if you want to drive a completely sorted out, gorgeous, worry free McLaren. The 12C line had a number of predictable problems that were both annoying and expensive to remedy. This car has had them all fixed so you don't have to worry about it. 12C headlights tend to fog and mold, as mine had. Both headlights have been replaced with a new generation that prevents this from reoccurring. The suspension accumulaters are known to fail, mine have, and have all been replaced. The door mounted HVAC control LED back lights fail. Mine did, and have been replaced. The IRIS 1 Sat Nav and surround system was buggy and unreliable, I had mine replaced with a brand new IRIS 2 system under warranty, an upgrade that cost over $10,000.00

As mentioned, this 12C includes a transferable Mclaren warranty good until February 18th, 2021. This extended limited warranty costs $7000 per year and covers all major systems on the car. So you can purchase this 12C and not have to worry in the least about unexpected major repairs. In order to qualify for a McLaren warranty the car must pass a Certified Pre Owned inspection (and resolve any issues discovered at your expense), and as long as you keep the warranty in effect you do not have to have it re-certified. This warranty also includes free roadside assistance anywhere in the US, INCLUDING free covered transportation to the nearest McLaren dealership if you are stranded. You are required to perform a yearly service at a McLaren dealership to keep the warranty in effect.

This is my personal vehicle. I am a life long sports car enthusiast, I change vehicles about every 3 years, and I'm only selling my 12C because I have purchased a Ferrari and I don't have space for two fun cars. You are welcome to call and talk with me with any questions you might have about the 12C. The car is on display at a friend's High Line dealership callee Mid Atlantic Moterwerkes in Harrisonburg, VA, and a test drive can be arranged for those seriously interested in the car.

Hi, I'd like to see some pics. I couldn't find any on the moterwerks site. Can you send them to my email address at [email protected]? thanks
Hello! If you click the Autotrader link on the first post it will take you to the ad with plenty of pics. I have e-mailed you the link as well. Would be happy to answer any questions.

Excellent car you have for sale, love the volcano red!! The 430/6 is a really good choice too. Love to hear your thoughts on the contrasts. Obviously, from very different generations. The 430 is likely slower but rawer, enjoy it :)

Thanks! It will be a great car for somebody. And for contrasts, I just feel the road better with the Ferrari, more connected, which is the up side of the stiffer ride. Steering is quite different, not necessarily better but more sensitive. And I'll always be a manual transmission fan, the 12C was my very first sports car with an auto. I got used to it, and grew to appreciate it when shifting in turns, but I'm really sad sticks are becoming dinosaurs. The 430 will likely be the last one I own unless I decide to have a dedicated track car. The exhaust sound on a Ferrari V8 is also pretty much music, I'm an audio engineer by profession. ;-) But the 430 just doesn't have the raw, almost startling power that I've gotten used to with the 12C and I do miss that. I also think the 12C is objectively a better looking car.

I almost pulled the trigger on a 430 prior to the purchase of my 12c, and after driving them back to back, I purchased a 12c. The rawness of the 430 was eventual deciding factor for me. I couldn't picture myself driving the car for more than an hour at a time due to the rawness. Love the 430, still may add one eventually, but the wife gets the next car so I will have to wait.

I understand. For me the best driving car I have ever owned was a Lotus Elise, the very picture of rawness. I loved that car but it was hard to live with. Hot in the summer, cold in the winter, loud and buzzy and rattly, but OMG what fun it was on a winding road. The F430 reminds me of it in some ways but by comparison a luxury GT LOL.

I bought a 2008 F430 with a gated 6 speed transmission. Quite a different experience. :)
Congratulations. I love driving manual transmission classic sports cars. The 430 is pretty new to call a classic but it’s definitely a future classic and a great car.

Thanks! I'm really enjoying it, especially now that I located the lumbar support button on the seat! I didn't know I had one until a friend pointed it out. It's a really fun car. I still find myself wanting to take out the 12C one more time but it's all shiny and ready to sell.
