Other changes for 2013 include modified transmission programming and the addition of software that will let drivers control just how much engine noise is piped into the cabin. (With a car like this, why turn down that eight-pot growl?) There's also a suspension lift mode, which can raise and lower the car at slow speeds, and the MP4-12C's touchscreen infotainment interface will now be equipped with Bluetooth and navigation functionality.
Oh, and current MP4 owners needn't worry – McLaren will retrofit all of these new features to 2012 models free of charge. The 2013 model will officially go on sale this September.
