Had a test drive in a 12C yesterday, fantastic car to drive and the acceleration!!!!!
My questions are

1/ Looking on PH there are 21 cars for sale and I'm looking at a 2012 car, I know some cars on there are priced @ £147k etc but I'd have thought £140k- should be on? I ask as someone that's a tad parsimonious ;)

2/ Are the car's sorted or are there still a few 'niggles' still?

Thanks :)

Hey Geoff you've answered your own question, the car is fast and fantastic. As for price that's always tough due to options, market demand etc...., as for the so called niggles yes they still exist, but car doesn't have a coupe of these issues. I currently have a couple of vehicles and each and every one has a issue or two, so it's how bad do you want this fantastic car. Cheers.....??

Welcome Geoff
Said like a true Yorkshireman ;)

The 2012 car is a bit of a bargain considering that they upgraged them all in line with the latest model.
Apart from niggles that affect all manufacturers, the main ones with us still are software related.
If you ignore the IRIS then the car is well sorted, plenty of information on here regarding the software but none of it affects the drive of the car I'm pleased to say.

Suggest you call Alastair at McLaren London. They have a couple of 12Cs and will make sure car is fully sorted prior to delivery.

Hi Geoff,

I purchased a 2011 car last week from Birmingham, and it's very good! I don't understand why 2012 cars are often £10k - £20k more. Its my understanding that mechanically they are the same and with the latest update, software too. I've not come across any niggles yet.

Went back to the dealer today (after trying to think of excuses not to purchase a C12 last night) and now it's not 'if' I purchase one it's 'when'

So it's a C12 2012 in orange/darker orange/red, with carbon/stealth/ etc
