The Hertz Corp. announced March 29 that the famous McLaren MP4-12C sports car (12C) is now available for hire for the first time ever, offered exclusively by Hertz/Premiere Velocity in the UK. With the 12C, customers will be able to experience McLaren’s Formula 1 technology for the first time in a road car.

Michel Taride, president, Hertz International and executive vice president, Hertz Corp., said: “Hertz aspires to offer truly innovative rental experiences to our customers, and the spell-binding McLaren MP4-12C provides an opportunity of a lifetime to experience Formula 1 race-bred technologies on the road. We are very excited to offer the exclusive hire of the exhilarating sports car from www.hertzsupercars.com.”

The 12C features a 3.8-litre V8 twin turbo engine, which produces 592hp and 600Nm torque. Demonstrating McLaren’s motorsport DNA, the 12C’s unique carbon fiber "MonoCell" chassis weighs just over 165 lbs. The McLaren Airbrake and McLaren Brake Steer support 12C dynamics and bespoke ProActive Chassis Control suspension and SSG transmission deliver ultimate track times and supreme comfort on the road.

The McLaren retails at 212,000 pounds Sterling. Hertz customers can experience this luxury by hiring the supercar from rates starting at 1134.30 pounds for a single day mid-week. The rates reduce to 906.30 pounds per day for rentals lasting more than 28 days. Terms and conditions apply.
