Report: McLaren to offer free power upgrades for current MP4-12C owners

The owner of an MP4-12C posted a letter he received from McLaren to McLarenDriver.com informing him that he is to receive a power upgrade before its release at no charge.

In the letter, Antony Sheriff, McLaren Automotive Managing Director, says “The power output of your 12C will increase by 25 PS to a class leading 625 PS (or 616 hp). Our development team has re-engineered the mapping of the 12C engine to give your car a performance upgrade with significantly improved responsiveness. The 12C’s remarkable CO2 emissions and fuel efficiency figures are unchanged.”

Generally, this upgrade would cost a pretty penny, but not only is this one being offered up for free, McLaren is also offering upgrades such as programmable engine note, enhanced equalization options for the Meridian sound system, remote opening passenger door and an upgraded IRIS infotainment system.

McLaren dealerships will be offering the upgrade starting in October.
