McLaren has a long history of giving fits to F1 rivals like Ferrari and Lamborghini, and earning a loyal following with its driver-first mentality.
Though priced like a supercar – at well over $200,000 – the MP4-12C is nevertheless considered a good value. And it gets even better for 2013. Most notably, buyers will find an extra 25 horsepower under the hood, new interior color schemes, and an Intake Sound Generator that pipes glorious noises into the cabin.
The 2013 McLaren MP4-12C comes standard with: a single-piece carbon-fiber monocell; adaptive suspension; selectable normal, track and sport ride types; 19-inch wheels at the front, 20-inch wheels at the rear; Pirelli P-Zero tires; bi-xenon automatic headlights with LED daytime running lights; tilt steering; fabric upholstery with partial-leather seating; a leather-wrapped steering wheel; power windows; a Meridian audio system with four speakers, AM/FM/CD compatibility, USB input, iPod integration and a 7-inch touchscreen monitor; keyless entry and start; and dual-zone air conditioning.

|Build & Price|
Significantly more powerful, more aggressive appearance and slightly quicker, but extremely expensive
Lower base price, sexy body and comfortable, but lacks power and quickness
Stunning body, Mercedes-Benz pedigree and luxurious, but slightly slower to 60 mph and lower horsepower
Refreshed look, all-wheel drive available and a head-turner, but not as agile and underpowered
