The team at HyperCar Development has become the first known engineering group to successfully convert a stock McLaren 12C into a hypercar while still maintaining the stability and environmental controls inherent in the McLaren brand.

After completing the Phase 1 conversion of a 12C, the team took their vehicle to a private airport in the Charlotte area for some time trial runs on November 13, 2015. These trials included timed quarter-mile runs and head-to-head against a stock 12C.

The resulting outcome was impressive enough to satisfy observers and the development team. This also facilitated a brief West Coast appearance for the newly minted McLaren Hypercar.
