So the McLaren MP4-12C has launched with a few technical gremlins and a plethora of road tests claiming that it's not as hot as a Ferrari 458 Italia. Jeremy Clarkson called it a pair of tights, too. That can't have been nice for them. Anyway, we all know McLaren's road-going portfolio is constantly going to be compared to one car – the F1.

Yup, the 240mph hypercar designed by moustachioed car-God Gordon Murray will forever be the comparison any new McLaren road car must face. The MP4-12C isn't as quick, or exclusive as the F1, so McLaren is changing that with a successor. And it's been out testing.
