In 2011 the newly formed McLaren Automotive launched into its brave new world with the MP4-12C. So many followed: the 650S, 720S, 600, 675 and 765LTs. The 620R, the P1, Senna, Speedtail, Elva and doubtless others I have forgotten along the way. But they were all grown from the seed that was the 12C. Some grew bigger, mightier and more memorable, but all came from the same place.
