It was rumored last week that McLaren is planning a 2+2 version of the MP4-12C. McLaren wasted no time in dispelling the rumors saying that it has no plans to offer a four-seater version and will continue to keep the model a two-seater.
“McLaren is committed to designing and building the 12C strictly as a two-seater,” McLaren press officer Dan Connell told MotorTrend. “There are no plans to change that configuration.”
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.
