2010 McLaren MP4-12C
August, 2010 § 1 Comment
McLaren’s automotive division has built one oy my favourite cars of all time: McLaren F1 (1993-1998). Also, with Mercedes have designed the SLR McLaren (2003-2009). We always expect great cars from McLaren Automotive (one of the most teams in the Formula 1 World Championship).
I have to say “thanks!” to Frank Stephenson (McLaren Automotive Design Director) for let us enjoy this nice car. He said a interesting words: “Many sports cars and super cars present an ‘in-your-face’, ‘look-at-me’ image that can become wearing and boorish; the ultimate backhanded compliment becomes, “…it was of its time”. Great design, however, is timeless and looks relevant years later. Take the McLaren F1 as an example. I hope that with the 12C we have produced a car that looks great today and will still look great in years to come.”
Great design is timeless…
