As many have written, the 2012 McLaren MP4-12C is a supercar you can drive every day. Owing to well-considered engineering, trick technologies and sensible packaging, one can creep languidly along the thoroughfares like a suspect uncle, turn a knob and beat a Chengdu J-10 to the Taiwan Strait. Its ability to change character at will is truly epic.

What's been said less often about the MP4-12C is that it's really, really good to drive balls out. X-factor good. Some have scorned the 12C as a car without a soul, the product of a Brit-nerd assignment stressing technological supremacy and a Watson-and-Crick-like attention to detail over raw sex appeal. They've said it's a car that hits the right performance numbers but grasps at the undefined steaminess that gives its Maranello rival — the Ferrari 458 — an emotional leg in the air.

Quite a keg of codswallop, that.

Great review that hits all the right points in the right manner. The video was a bit dull.
