Lagoona Mall is hosting a display of one of the world’s top high performance sports cars, the McLaren MP4-12C Coupe, until the end of November 2012.
The 12C Coupe is built in the McLaren Production Centre (MPC), next door to the McLaren Technology Centre (MTC) where the race cars of Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button are prepared by the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team in Woking, UK. The display has been organized by McLaren Doha retail partner, Al Wajba Motors. The MP4-12C is the first “pure McLaren”; every part is designed and built by McLaren.
General Manager of Lagoona Mall, Eamon Kelly said: “McLaren doesn’t really need any introductions,they have been winners in 1 of every 4 Formula 1 races they have ever entered and are renowned for being a relentlessly competitive company, bred on high-performance and determined to bring to market ground-breaking technologies and a range of sports cars”.
Kelly continued “Lagoona Mall is proud to have been selected by McLaren to showcase their debut model, the 12C Coupe, this supports the Lagoona Mall vision to be a market leader in hosting luxury brands”.
McLaren’s approach to design, development, production and retailing of high-performance sports car can be summed up through the words of McLaren Automotive’s Executive Chairman, Ron Dennis: “At McLaren we never stop, we exist to go faster; to be state-of-the-art; to innovate; to perform with belief, flair and passion; to be the absolute best at what we do. McLaren Automotive builds on nearly 50 years of heritage and the founding principles of good design and solid, seamlessly efficient engineering and manufacturing”.
So, what is unique about McLaren’s sports cars? Carbon. The 12C features a revolutionary carbon fiber chassis structure, the Carbon MonoCell. This is the first time a production car below $500,000 has been presented with this ultra-strong and ultra-lightweight racing car-derived engineering solution. Not only that, but it is the first time any car has ever featured a one-piece molded carbon fiber structure.
As McLaren Doha, operated by Al Wajba Motors is set to launch its state-of-the art showroom soon, 12C Coupe can be seen at the Al Wajba Showroom in Al Mana Business Centre, Al Amir Street, Doha, Qatar and at the Lagoona Mall. To book a test drive, call McLaren Doha on 44114411.
