Good video with a few good points concerning the MP4-12C becoming a classic.
Depending on what happens politically concerning the global environmental issue, I think within the next 5 years the early MP4-12C will pick up in price point a bit more severe compared with what we see today.

Last year i had my car in for 10 year service. Accumulators where replaced, transmission oil, engine oil, filters+++ and battery died and replaced with GEN3. Tire sensors replaced. Ratle from A pilar fixed with new plastic clip.

This year all i had to take care of was oil service/year service.

Grate car to drive, quiet and comfortable when needed. Also fun and loud inside with good road feel thru steering wheel. Love this car!

Still got mine.

I think this video will become a Classic as well!

A very nice perspective and it included commentary from extremely influential persons in the cars design and evolution.

Looking at the increase in price for the MP4-12C lately, I see that as an indication of a collectable and a classic car. When it came out it was a head of time in both design and function, Love the car and I am still learning and still seeking knowledge about my car. Not knowing is one of the reasons I bought my car. I want to learn and want to challenge my self in different ways than my other classic cars. But living in Norway has its challenges since there are no one else seeking the same type of knowledge as I do. No McLaren club, no McLaren dealer, no McLaren workshop and nearly impossible to contact anybody owning this brand of car. Luckily I found this forum and a few youtube videos that got me intouch with McMedics, so now I know a bit more, and I can do basic stuff my self. Quiet frankly the brand has an unfair reputation, comparing McLaren with Ferrari and Lamoborghini, I realised they are not that different in maintenance cost and reliability. So cheers to us whom dear to be different!
