Quick stats: 600bhp, 443lb ft, 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8, 1,400kg, 0-124mph in 10 seconds and £168,500.

Back at McLaren’s HQ in Surrey, England, production of the MP4-12C has begun.

Ron Dennis, Big Boss at McLaren, claims that this will be the “fastest car money can buy”.  The first of these is being built at the McLaren Technology Centre, but production will continue in the £40 million, purpose built, Production Centre next door, due to be completed in May.

McLaren plan on building 1000 examples following last year’s successful debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last year.
