McLaren To Launch Special-Edition MP4-12C Supercar Ahead of Singapore Grand Prix
As its race team gets ready for this weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix, McLaren plans to unveil a special-edition model of its MP4-12C supercar in Singapore. Called the Fire Black Singapore Edition, the new car is painted in colors that recall the Vodafone-McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 race car.
The McLaren MP4-12C Fire Black Singapore Edition wears Fire Black paint with special Rocket Red and silver accents, arranged to mirror the livery of the McLaren Formula 1 cars. Lightweight alloy wheels and unique front and rear fascias also are part of the package.
The car was developed by McLaren Special Operations, and the interior is adorned with special Singapore Edition badges, an Alcantara-covered steering wheel, Harissa Red and Alcantara seats, and Rocket Red finishes for the climate controls and instrument cluster surround.
McLaren reportedly only built three of the special-edition cars, and two of them have already been spoken for by well-heeled buyers. The Singapore-edition car reportedly costs the equivalent of about $1.04 million — a price premium likely due in part to the cost of importing a McLaren MP4-12C into Singapore in the first place.
The news comes only days after McLaren showed the first pictures of its new P1 supercar, which will debut next week at the Paris Motor Show.
