The car went on a diet, especially in the gearbox department, where the new one weighs 80 kg less than the 7-speed transmission available for the standard variant. In addition, the competition-tuned MP4-12C features a race suspension and borrows some F1 tech for the electronic systems, tires, seats and the steering wheel.
