McLaren MP4-12C

13 years after the McLaren F1 production has ceased, the successful manufacturer stepped in with a brand new supercar known as McLaren MP4-12C. It was produced between 2011 and 2014 only. All in all, just like the F1 model, this one comes with some innovative technologies used in Formula 1 as well. For example, tight elbows brake the inner rear wheel a little, only to prevent the car from understeering. There is also a convertible version of this car. As for this small video animation, it presents a McLaren F1 braking on snow. The ABS function is obvious as the wheels stop.
