McLaren Offers Free Tech Upgrade to 12C Owners

I'm sure at this point you have heard that Mclaren is stopping the production of the 12C, but did you know that McLaren is offering owners of 12Cs a free Technology Upgrade Program?

This free Technology Upgrade program will be available from June, and will offer a new Active Aero software for the airbrake that will make it 'sense' different driving scenarios. The software will improve stability when lifting off the throttle or cresting a hill. It will also include a DRS (Drag Reduction System) mode which lowers the wing when driving at highspeeds in a straight line, in order to improve aerodynamics.

McLaren is also offering a special price on the two new features that made their debut with the 650S: the reversing camera and DAB radio.

Nice! Even better, this adds some great value to the 650.

I find the whole transition between the 12C and the 650S to be a little confusing. They discontinued the 12C but are giving it free upgrades to make it a 650S essentially. I'm sure its all being done for the good of the customer, but I wonder if some Mclaren fans are also confused by exactly what is going on.

That is an amazing cars, but the same can be said for everything they sell and have sold. Great brand, can't wait to see what they have planned for the future.

I don't see anything confusing here, basically the 650S is the 12C successor, it's as simple as that.
