Already lightweight supercar gets a trim & bright new dress

While the original McLaren MP4-12C is already a masterpiece novel of carbon fiber — including a full monocoque carbon fiber chassis — HAMANN Motorsport take the exorbitant material investment to an entirely new level. The German modifiers have developed a full body kit to not only improve the aerodynamics of the hypercar, but also lower its already super lightweight mass. Borrowing stylistic body elements from the 1995 winner at LeMans, the MP4-12C’s legendary predecessor the McLaren F1, HAMANN transforms the front end with new carbon mudguards, air outlets and expressive front apron — its LED daytime running lights and carbon front spoiler of particular interest. Side aprons, larger air inlets, carbon hood, roof scoop, rear wings, unique forged ultra-light aluminium wheels and the rear apron with recesses for three exhaust pipes lend the “memoR” an imposing appearance, but it is made all the more vivid with the car’s bold, hyper-bright paint scheme. A brilliant machine from top to bottom, the only complaint many have rendered against the MP4-12C is that McLaren was too generic with the design — well certainly HAMANN’s paintjob will do much to remedy that. The interior is fully customizable too, with carbon, wood, leather and Alcantara options; HAMANN promises to execute whatever the customer fancies. The cost to turn your McLaren MP4-12C into a HAMANN “memoR” art car? Oh, only about $120,000 over the cost of the donor McLaren MP4-12C (which starts at $230,000).
