McLaren's first modern supercar, the MP4-12C, which made its debut just three years back is officialy heading to an end of its journey. The supercar manufacturer has officially announced that the MP4-12C will take a bow because they now want to concentrate on the 650S.

"Meanwhile, the final piece of news I wanted to share with you is regarding 12C production which we have decided to cease in light of the success of 650S," Mike Flewitt, McLaren CEO, said in the letter, which was posted to the McLaren Life forum. "The new car has been so well received since its unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show (we already have a six month order bank) we will focus all our capacity at the McLaren Production Centre on 650S."

The 2014 Geneva Motorshow unveiled 650 S received an overwhelming response and the manufacturer plans to cash in on this attention. McLaren has its order books full with a six month pre-order and hence the focus will be more on the production of the 650S.

The MP4-12C was McLaren's first modern road car, following in the footsteps of the iconic F1 from the 1990s. Although now out of production, the MP4-12C isn't exactly outdated - its 616 horsepower 3.8L twin-turbocharged V8 is capable of propelling it from 0-60 in just 3.1 seconds. She will be missed!
