Yes, You can Fit a Man in a McLaren 12C's Luggage Compartment!

Supercars are notoriously difficult to live with, even to this day. Sure, they play with your eardrums in a lovely way, but when you're about to embark on a long journey and you need to take your luggage with you, you should look elsewhere. Or should you?

Supercar lower and as of late owner Shmee150 is about to take his reasonably expensive, brand new 12C on a long rally. Obviously luggage is important, so he naturally thought "hang on, if I can get a person under the bonnet, surely my weekly whites will have no problem."

Volunteering for this amazing stunt of contortionism is Louis, who is not fit nor thin. Right before the bonnet is closed, it almost looks like the 144 liters of luggage space up front will not be enough for Louis, but as Shmee pops the hood down, it's clear 12Cs are designed to carry a man in the front.

Just in case you've suddenly got the urge to buy a supercar, know that this British model also has another 52 litres of luggage in two specially designed bags, supplied as standard and fitted behind the driver and passenger.

The rest of the car is all-engine, 3.8 liters of it being stuffed in the back, where your family hatch or SUV has a trunk. Together with the twin turbos, 625 PS and a very reasonable combined fuel economy of 24.2 mpg (11.7 l/100km) are delivered.
