Already dreaming up your ideal McLaren MP4-12C? McLaren's made the task even easier, courtesy of a new car configurator that recently launched on its Web site.
The deeply customizable Web site offers 17 exterior colors, wheels and tires for street and track duties, and a surprising amount of interior options.
We went with a McLaren orange and carbon fiber motif with dark grey, superlight wheels shod in race-ready rubber. Forget the non-essentials like luggage sets and floor mats. We opted for lightweight, and the Stealth Pack, which darkens the exhaust pipes and wing supports, because it looks cool. Gordon Murray would be proud, even though he isn't.
On the site, you can also view the preconfigured cars of vehicle designer Frank Stephenson, McLaren boss Ron Dennis, and British F1 champions Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button.
