2012 McLaren MP4-12C Starts at $229,000

McLaren has released the pricing for the MP4-12C supercar, which starts at $229,000.

Although $230k may seem like a lot for most people, the pricing is right in line with the competition from Ferrari and Lamborghini. McLaren expects to build 1,000 units in its first year of production.

The 12C is powered by a 592-hp 3.8L V8 twin-turbo engine that is mated to a seven-speed transmission. Sales will begin in the summer of 2011.

Apparently there is already a waiting list…
