McLaren Moves To Discontinue The MP4-12C In Favor Of The New McLaren 650S
You may notice that the two vehicles bear a resemblance. You can contribute that to the fact that they share a unique chasis. While the 650S may be styled like a P1 it still is just a MP4 underneath. So you make ask, why not just change up the styling and keep the name?
Well you'll have to understand that McLaren is a brand all about exclusivity. The MP4-12C has been McLaren's longest running production vehicle(2011-2014) So what McLaren is doing is trying to keep authentic to one of it's many claims. So one of the greatest vehicles ever must now die all in the name of EXCLUSIVITY.
