Nice read, thx for the linkie! :D

At times, I've been tempted to configure my eventual MP4-12C as'per Ron's spec., as it almost mirrored my own when I spec'd it last year.

Styles and Major Options

There are 4 pre-configured options for the MP4-12C available at the McLaren website. Each one of them has been suggested by someone closely related to McLaren. If the user wants something more personal, he can ignore them and make his own 12C within the website using the configurator.

  • Frank Stephenson (Lead Designer): Designed for everyday driving yet sporty performance, it comes with an upgraded diffuser, door mirrors and engine bay made of carbon fibre; Full "Carbon Black" leather interior with "Orange Space" fabric. The seats back and steering wheel are also upgraded to carbon fibre. For more comforting driving, it comes with Satellite Navigation, Surround Meridian audio and parking assistance.

  • Ron Dennis (McLaren Chairman): Designed to stand out with details, it comes with Titanium Silver exclusive McLaren paint, carbon fibre body upgrades, 10-spoke superlight forged wheels and silver brake calipers. The interior is "Carbon Black" leather with the McLaren logo stitched on the headrest and a conmemorative plate in the central console, celebrating McLaren's championships. It comes with a touchscreen satellite navigation system and Wi-Fi connectivity.

  • Lewis Hamilton (McLaren F1 Driver): Designed for track performance with eye-catching exterior, its painted in Volcano Red, carbon fibre splitter, diffuser, mirrors and engine bay cover. For enhanced performance, it comes with Carbon-ceramic brakes, Lightweight forged wheels and uprated exhaust made of F1 composites. The interior is upholstered in Red Leather with Black Alcantara details. The seats are full electric carbon fibre with memory and easy access technology. It comes with McLaren's propietary software for saving the user times on the track and then upload them to compare with other 12C users.

  • Jenson Button (McLaren F1 Driver): Designed for looks and performance driving, its painted in Carbon Black Special Paint with the optional Stealth Pack. The diffuser, splitter, mirrors and turning vanes are made of naked carbon fibre for a sportier look. The brakes are Carbon-Ceramic with Red Calipers and Black forged lightweight wheels. The exhaust is also modified for saving weight purposes. The interior is Carbon Black leather, Alcantara details and Red stitching designed to match the brake calipers. The SatNav system is upgraded to include Wi-Fi, bluetooth, voice control and media capabilities mated to a surround audio system.
