We’ve all heard of the McLaren F1, and their values, a supercar of supercars that debuted just over 30 years ago now, but now jump to 2009, when McLaren launched the MP4-12C car and the promise of a car that utilised advances in composites manufacturing technology and the new Woking factory in 2011. Styled by Frank Stephenson, of course, the MP4-12C used a carbon-fibre MonoCell tub that was more easily produced to meet production numbers and retail schedules, in a timely fashion. A more conventional car, seating abreast for two, rather than the famous layout for 3 on the F1, the 12C still had the dihedral doors.

First registered on the 23rd of March 2012, ‘JRO’ is a 2012 example of the McLaren MP4-12C that was supplied to its first owner by McLaren Ascot. Presenting in the attractive Ice Silver with complementing Black leather upholstery and matching Black carpets, the exterior has the carbon roof and upgrades have included the upgraded sound system and the latest RSR software for the II Iris information centre and electric memory seats.

Over the years ‘JRO’ has gathered a predominantly main agent service history:

1 year service from McLaren Birmingham 28.3.13 at 2,441 miles

2 year service from McLaren Ascot 10.4.14 at 6,493 miles

3 year service from McLaren Manchester 31.3.15 at 9,767 miles

4 year service from McLaren Glasgow 1.6.16 at 14,706 miles

5 year service from McLaren Glasgow 30.5.17 at 18,623 miles

6 year service from McLaren Glasgow 22.5.19 at 30,361 miles

7 year service from GVE Italian Supercar Specialist 8.7.20 at 32,700 miles

10 year service from McLaren Hatfield 5.5.22 at 35,160

The 12C is accompanied by a history file which includes the original service and warranty book with 8 stamps (to 35,160 miles) and an IRIS user guide. Additionally, there are a collection of invoices from the servicing and some maintenance work, including from Beckers Mechanical Services of Chester, who carried out an air conditioning service and fitted a new wiper motor in June of 2023. There is some old MOT paperwork with the most recent clean MOT at 35,368 miles and valid until June 2022 and the current V5C.
