The mid-engined McLaren MP4 12C sports car is already a beautiful machine, but the Volcano Orange car you see here features some tasteful upgrades, including a set of lightweight, high-performance “Scarface” alloy wheels from DONZ Forged. This attractive, though not ostentatious, split-five-spoke design is engineered for top performance with true sports cars like the MP4 in mind, giving passers-by a good look at the car’s Brembos high-performance brake package.
Lurking just behind the driver is a mid-mounted, twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 engine with 593 horsepower and 445 pound-feet of torque, enough to rocket the MP4 from 0 to 60 mph in under 3.5 seconds. A light curb weight of just 2,868 pounds helps increase performance, but adding a set of forged alloy wheels from DONZ Forged will lower the car’s important unsprung mass rating, improving throttle response, top speed and cornering performance.
This very special McLaren has been tuned and refined by EEC Exotic Euro Cars of Woodland Hills, CA, built as part of a team that also included Roadstar Los Angeles and Motorvision of Las Vegas.
Have a look at the video to see just what a difference a good set of sport-alloy wheels can make for the MP4’s looks and performance!
