McLaren MP4-12C High Sport Special with 675HP Captured on Film


Last week, YouTube user "Jodito20" captured a pair of McLaren MP4-12C supercars at The Collection in Miami, Florida, on film. While the silver colored model was a regular MP4-12C, the other one turned out to be a customized version named HS for "High Sport".
The info came from a McLaren salesperson who told Jodito20 that only five models were built.
"I talked to a salesman and he told me HS stands for High Sport. He confirmed that there are only five cars in the world. BUT, these cars are NOT from the McLaren Special Operation program. They are not Bespoke Editions even if they have some customization in common," Jodito20 wrote on his video channel.
The High Speed variant sports a redesigned front end, similar to that of the GT3 racer, in order to increase downforce as well as airflow to the 3.8-liter V8 turbo intercoolers. Power is reportedly up by 75HP, for a total of 675HP – edging closer to the Lamborghini Aventador and moving away from 458 territory.
The rest of the changes are also inspired by the racing model and include a new bumper, air vents, extended diffuser and redesigned rear wing.
So, it’s got even more power, which to be honest was the one thing the MP4-12C wasn’t short of. The real question is has it gained that “character” that would help it trump the 458?
Guess we’ll have to cross our fingers and hope someone will get their hands on one of the five examples and share the experience.
