Launched in Auto Club Revolution on the 8 th May 2012, the MP4-12C joins McLaren’s legendary F1 and adds another mid-engined monster to the game’s ever-increasing roster of high-performance vehicles available to buy with the game’s e-Bucks currency.

The official Auto Club Revolution forums will see a dedicated thread for the car’s release, which will include all manner of information.

Doug Wolff, team lead, Eutechnyx commented: “McLaren has always been at the forefront of car design, be it in Formula 1, on behalf of other manufacturers or under its own label, and the MP4-12C is absolutely emblematic of that combination of extreme skill, talent and artistry.” He continues, “With the truly iconic McLaren F1 already in the Auto Club Revolution roster, we’re overjoyed to be able to add the very latest summation of McLaren’s automotive knowledge to our game and with the MP4-12C in place, we’ll be looking forward to seeing even more fierce battles in the mid-engined supercar domain within the Auto Club Revolution community and leaderboards.”
