According to German magazine AutoBild, McLaren is planning the possibility of an MP4-12C with a 2+2 setup. Of course there are lot of things McLaren must consider before making the final decision.
First and foremost, the weight of the MP4-12C will definitely increase. Currently, the car is reported to be under 3,100 pounds. Second, do McLaren’s customers even care about two extra seats that will probably provide enough room for children rather than adults.
We’ll find out soon enough.
Refresher: Power for the 2011 McLaren MP4-12C comes from a 3.8L V8 twin-turbo engine producing around 600-hp mated to a 7-speed Seamless Shift dual-clutch gearbox (SSG). 0 to 60 mph is expected to come in the low 3 second range with a top speed of more than 200 mph. Sales begin in early 2011.
