16 October 2013 - McLaren Supercar in BCA sale

A 2012-registered McLaren MP4-12C sportscar will be offered for sale at BCA Blackbushe on Wednesday, 23 October at 1.00 pm.

The British-assembled supercar, which retails for over £200,000 when new, is one of the most powerful road-legal cars available.   It features a carbon fibre composite chassis and is powered by a mid-engined 3.8-litre V8, twin-turbo engine developing approximately 616 BHP delivered through a seven-speed seamless Shift dual-clutch gearbox.  It boasts sophisticated driving technology sourced from the F1 world including brake steer and a host of other performance driving aids.  The car goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and has a top speed of 207 mph.

This right-hand drive black example has covered just 6,400 miles from new and is the first of the current generation of McLaren supercars to be sold by BCA.  It is offered with an up-to-date service history from McLaren London and the correct documentation.

“This McLaren will be the star of our sale at Blackbushe on Wednesday, 23 October and we are expecting a huge amount of interest from buyers not just in the UK but from Europe and further afield.” confirmed Tim Naylor of BCA.  “The McLaren is a handcrafted sports car which I am sure will appeal to any motorist looking for a high performance vehicle.   

Naylor added “The high end prestige and sports market has a strong following with buyers and we have seen lots of interest in high value vehicles during 2013 with bidders prepared to invest six-figure sums for the right vehicle.   It could be that some well-heeled buyers are simply deciding that their money might as well be put to good use on a prestige car rather than languishing in a savings account that is paying very little interest.”
