McLaren’s MP4-12C is due to go on sale from Spring 2011, and between now and then McLaren will continue to refine and develop the 12C until it achieves their target of being the world’s best high-performance sports car.

In this video McLaren Automotive provide an insight into a performance car testing program from the development team behind the new McLaren MP4-12C. The challenging and comprehensive development program has taken the car to some of the world’s most famous race circuits and most inhospitable driving environments.

Combined with simulation programs, Formula 1 techniques, personnel and processes, and thousands of miles of on-road driving, the McLaren Automotive testing team has taken giant strides through 2009 in the 12C’s development.

We hear from Dick Glover, McLaren Automotive Technical Director and Chris Goodwin, Chief Test Driver as well as general views about the McLaren Technology Centre.

It’s great to see the MP4-12C being driven quickly, it certainly looks promising and if McLaren’s previous supercar is anything to go by then they’ll make sure it enters the market in top spot.
