Carbon fiber fun time.
The McLaren MP4-12C may have already seen its production run come to an end in favor of the McLaren 650S, but it is still a commanding and powerful presence on the road. This is especially the case when the team at Vorsteiner installs their new aero wing and MP4-X aerodynamic kit on the British supercar.
Vorsteiner had created a full carbon fiber aerodynamic kit for the McLaren MP4-12C called the MP4-VX, but now it’s getting even better thanks to some new tech. The factory MP4-12C utilizes an advanced active aerodynamic system that helps adjust the rear spoiler wing to improve downforce and stability at high speeds or to act as an air brake based on driver inputs and behavior.
Now, Vorsteiner has taken that system to a whole new level thanks to their new MP4-VX active wing. The wing can be adjusted inside by the drive at 32-degrees when additional downforce is needed, and all the way up to 69-degrees when more stopping power is needed. The latter function uses the new MP4-VX rear wing as an air brake to reduce stopping distances even more than the factory setup.
The smooth, contoured profile of the new Vorsteiner MP4-VX rear wing is only part of the aerodynamic equation with the McLaren MP4-12C. PrePreg carbon fiber is the name of the game with the full Vorsteiner MP4-VX aero kit that complements the lightweight carbon fiber monocell that makes up the foundation for the supercar.
Up front, the supercar instantly becomes more dynamic thanks to the new front bumper with redesigned profile for better downforce. Each side of the McLaren MP4-12C is visually lowered thanks to new carbon fiber side skirts that help to redirect air away from the rear wheels. The final touch is at the rear where a new rear bumper with integrated diffuser setup sits and helps channel air in all the right places.
The new Vorsteiner McLaren MP4-VX aerodynamic kit including the new active rear wing are all available for the British supercar. Pricing for the entire kit has not been released.
