McLaren MP4-12C

It was reported last month that McLaren plans to launch the MP4-12C supercar in the United States have been delayed to mid-2010. Well, according to Tony Joseph, McLaren’s regional director for North America, McLaren never had plans to launch the new supercar in the stateside in 2010.

Joseph said that the MP4-12C will arrive in the United States and Canada in mid-2011, six months after the first units of the coupe roll out of McLaren’s UK factory. Look out for the first MP4-12C units sometime in May or June 2011.

As for the LA Auto Show launch in December, Joseph said that McLaren had discussed the possibility of displaying the MP4-12C in LA but decided that it “was too early for our launch plan.”
