We test the McLaren MP4-12c, Well Sort Of…

Inside Lane’s turn in the McLaren MP4-12c is something that is highly anticipated in the office with each of us willing to kill the others pets in order to secure a drive. However the MP4-12c won’t be available until early 2011 and there is still around 7 months of waiting to struggle through before we can live the dream. Well, that was until today when Turn 10 released DLC for their epic simulation Forza Motorsport 3.

We are long term fans of the Forza franchise as it offers brilliantly realistic racing simulations of the cars we love. We tested a real Focus RS and then it’s in game counterpart to find that it’s handling characteristics are uncanny! So how did we find the McLaren? Well it certainly sounds the part and with the traction control off it was able to hold power slides for an eternity before running out of grip. Very precise turn-in and ever so slightly tale happy is how we would describe the car overall, not to mention tremendous fun. How accurate in comparison to the real car this simulation is we will just have to wait and see, but for now if we can’t get the key to the real thing this will suffice.
