It's easier to change the wheels than the whole body, isn't it?

I personally find it handsome.

Never been a fan of aftermarket wheels, and I always thought they were quite an important part of how a car look. If a company doesn't come out with the right wheels, or headlights, there is something wrong, in my book that is.

any sort of clean five spoke designed wheels from a reputable manufacturer would suit the car.
probably have optional wheels from maclaren themselves anyway.

Even the optional wheels don't work for me. Meh.

McLaren F1 even also had really plain wheels.....aside from the LM with the thick 5 spoke racing wheels, the stock 5 split spoke was probably the least attractive part of that car. This just sorta continues it....

I like those pebble beach shots though...it has a nice stance..

Their "Super-lightweight forged" wheels are pretty inoffensive.

I think it's a result of the wheels being so large.

My own pictures and article from the Italian unveiling in Milan 2 weeks ago:

The Italian Junkyard: 8.4 McLaren Strikes back: quality time with the brand spanking new McLaren Mp4-12C at the Italian unveiling

Link just to avoid uploading 64 images again.
All shots were supposed to be 1920*, but Picasa decided 1600 was enough.
In the process, quality dropped...

I think this is going to be good.

I want a comparo with a 458.

McLaren seem to do it right.

Funny they quoted a different acceleration figure for the optional tire, but not braking figure....tractive force works in both direction....

I notice the 0-60 distance is 0100 Ft with standard steel brakes. That would mean the carbon brakes would be world record stoppers....
