One devilish super car.
The McLaren MP4-12C is finally starting to hit the streets around the world and wheelsandmore, the German aftermarket company, has unveiled their newest tuning program for the super car at the perfect time. The new MP4-12C tuning program was developed in order to “create something diabolical” by increasing power, lowering the suspension, and installing a new set of custom wheels.
Probably the most sinister and diabolical part of the entire wheelsandmore MP4-12C tuning program is the engine upgrade. It’s not that the hand-made exhaust system with remote-controlled exhaust valves and the ECU tune is some kind of exotic upgrade, it’s the power output after the upgrades that makes it so evil. The 3.8-liter, twin-turbo V-8 engine gets pushed up to 666 horsepower and 472 lb-ft. with the upgrades. The devil is in the details, isn’t it?
If having the mark of the beast as your total power output doesn’t suit your tastes, wheelsandmore is also currently developing a new turbocharger system and intercooler upgrade that will boost power to a more divine 800 horsepower.
wheelsandmore also took steps to improve the overall handling and steering of the McLaren. As part of the new wheelsandmore MP4-12C tuning program, the PCC complex electronic hydraulic suspension system can be lowered by 25 mm. The system is designed to reduce body roll and by lowering it, also improves the center of gravity and steering properties of the MP4-12C.
It wouldn’t be a complete wheelsandmore upgrade program without new wheels now, would it? For the wheelsandmore MP4-12C tuning process, the super car is equipped with lightweight forged wheels that help reduce unsprung mass for better overall performance. wheelsandmore chose to install custom 6Sporz ² wheels in a staggered 9 x 20 front and 12 x 21 rear fitment. Each wheel was given a unique finish with contrasting orange stripe and wheelsandmore center cap. The front wheels were fitted with 245/30/20 Continental Sport Contact 5P tires, while the rear was fitted with 325/25/21 tires.
The entire McLaren MP4-12C tuning program is currently available from wheelsandmore as an entire package or individual accessories. The 800 horsepower turbocharger and intercooler system will be available at a later date.
