The McLaren MP4-12c is the automotive company's second foray into a road-only car, and it's a stunner. This 592-horsepower supercar will be powered by a twin-turbocharged V-8 3.8 liter M838T engine. That means the McLaren MP4-12c can easily reach its top speed of 200+ miles per hour.

What's perhaps most special about the McLaren MP4-12c is its pre-cog feature; according to the New York Times, a driver can use this feature to set up a fast shift in advance. The McLaren MP4-12c is the follow-up to the McLaren F1, and will hit the road in the first half of 2011 at a cost of around $200,000.
