As expected, the McLaren MP4-12C is a hot commodity.

Currently, there are more than 2,700 pre-orders for the highly anticipated supercar. Considering McLaren is only planning to build 1,000 a year, this represents a nearly three-year backlog.

As we have previously reported, the MP4-12C features a twin-turbo 3.8-litre V8 with 447 kW (600 bhp / 608 PS) and 599 Nm (442 lb-ft) of torque. Backed up by a seven-speed "Seamless Shift" dual-clutch transmission, the engine enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 3.8 seconds and hit a top speed in excess of 300 km/h (186 mph).
