Could this be a first? Normally we wait in anticipation of the camouflage to be taken off prototype cars, but Greenwich Patch is reporting that Miller Motorcars in Greenwich, CT has taken a production car back to its prototype days. The McLaren MP4-12C above was painted gray, but you'd never know it because the sheetmetal has been covered by a vinyl wrap decorated with the same camouflage pattern McLaren uses for its pre-production prototypes. It was designed by McLaren - for proof, check out this P1 in winter testing - and took three days to apply. The shapes are those of race tracks around the world.

The dealership calls it the MP4-12C Greenwich Special Edition. It's a pre-owned car and we're not sure whether the wrap was applied as new or to help the coupe find a new home, but we'd like to buy a pint for the person that thought it up. If you like the style but not the $259,035 price, you can probably design one for your own car with countless hours and Adobe Illustrator. Or, you can simply get a closer look at this one from every angle, in the high-res gallery above.

      Sigh. First off, this isn't an anything 'Edition'. It's a car with a vinyl wrap. Secondly, I'd expect a better wrap on a quarter million dollar supercar. Many of the tracks don't line up at adjoining panels. Neat idea though, and it could always be taken off if you got tired of it.

      I love this car! I would love to own this exact one. I can't wait until I'm done with school and can afford nice things like this. http://www.creativecarpetinc.com/services/hardwood-flooring.html

      This is Greenwich CT, not CN... I have seen the car, and it is lovely.

      For when it's not enough to just drive a Mclaren, you can pose as a test driver in a prototype.

      I'm a (former) resident of Greenwich, CT and saw this about 2 weeks ago. I was thinking of snapping a photo and sending it in to Autoblog. Damn. It was sitting next to an R8 v10 5.2 and a couple of other beauties but I figured that for some odd reason they'd used 'anti-spy' wrap for shipping protection. Honestly, they need to do something, I've seen very very few McLaren's on the road in Greenwich. New Country tried a Lambo shop about 3 blocks down 2 years ago and it didn't make it so unless they are getting other New York traffic I'd imagine we won't be seeing too much more of these marketing stunts from them for much longer.

      Not sure what to think. I liked this design on the mules because it was neat to see some camouflage with hidden meaning. However, to me, putting this same wrap on a non-production car is kind of lame. It's kind of like how a pop-up spoiler on a car is cool at speed, but when you purposely deploy it at 20 MPH to try and look cool, you just end up looking lame.

      The graphics are too big, it would look nice if the lines were thinner, and more like the real camo

      I suppose this is a good way to identify your MP4-12C among the others in Greenwich.
