McLaren Fixes MP4-12C Issues, Resumes Deliveries

The McLaren MP4-12C is a monster that has only one aim: to eat the Ferrari 458 Italia alive. However, on its way to the battlefield, the British supercar caught a little cold, with multiple customers reporting issues such as battery drainage or indicator lights that are disobedient.

McLaren Boss Ron Dennis adressed the problem, writing to owners in order to appologise and offering each one a coffee table edition book.

Now, it seem that the carmaker has solved the issues and is ready to move forward. McLaren has developed a new firmware (the 8.2 update) and the company has even restarted deliveries.

All the units that are already in possesion of their owners will be recalled to have their firmware updated. However, this isn’t your usual OBD minute play, as it is expected for each unit to need between one and three days to be redone.
