    Does any of my McLaren friends know anything about this 12C? It's at a Mac store. They will put a warranty on it and it has been driven, so I would bet if there were any of the early car issues, they would have popped up and been sorted. Here's the link.

    Definitely one of the best colors on this car. Really hard to do the color justice in pics alone.

    Very nice, I like VR, and it's even updated with IRIS2. Great price to start with so what are they saying about the warranty price with what they're asking?

    I’m talking with a couple dealers, non-Mc, so no warranty. From comments on other sites a warranty is pretty much a must have on a 12c.

    Nice color, but barebones spec. Can probably do a lot better.

    I would not hesitate to buy a car from McLaren of Denver! Tom and Mike are stand up guys with genuine passion for the brand! They will take good care of you!

    As for the 12C, my personal experience has been all smiles! (And I'm A Ferrari Guy!)

    Get the extended warranty its worth the piece of mind and very inexpensive! I believe they offer up to 12 years of extended warranty now? (including original warranty) If so unbelievable value given the amazing performance the 12C delivers you will NOT find anything close to that price that can hold a candle to what that car can do!

    Just my .02
    Cheers!

    Since it is a Mac store, I would imagine that it has been thoroughly gone through. I have heard some nightmare parts costs and ridiculous things going wrong and costing 10's of thousands to fix, that have kept me on the fence. How has the car been for you? I've heard of gearbox leaks and steering racks for $30K, batteries for $3K.

    I am the original owner. Enjoyed it for 3 years and about 17k or so miles. I had all the updates done. Zero issues and bugs well sorted when I traded it for a 650s, which I still regret because I enjoyed this car as much. At that price it is a steal! PM with any questions.

    No direct dealings, but have many customers with cars from Mike Ward McLaren and Maserati and they've all had exceptional things to say about their experience.

    In order for them to put the extended warranty on the car it will need to pass a pre inspection and anything that does not pass must be fixed before hand. If I recall the warranty is 1yr unlimited miles and costs around $4,500. Assuming the car qualifies for the warranty the deal gets even more sweeter!!

    Not many cars come close to the performance of the 12C and knowing you can enjoy unlimited miles each year for up to 12 yrs(?) is unbelievable! (This is what I have been told by McLaren, that they will extend the warranty up to 12yrs from new, but best you verify that with the dealer!)

    It looks like this car has had plenty of track time, but has been cared for. It's also been tuned to ~1000hp.

    Interesting. Where was tuning done? Stock power with factory update only when I had it. Just a few fun track days, nothing excessive.

    No thanks. Would not buy ANY McLaren out of warranty. Go to MacNoLife forum and read the nightmares.

    At some point either they will all be worthless or the aftermarket will develop cost effective ways to keep them running.
