About a year after the market launch of the MP4-12C, McLaren has announced a new package of enhancements for its supercar headlined by a 25hp increase in power from the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8.

If you have already bought the MP4-12C, we have good news for you, as most upgrades, including the power boost, will be offered to all existing owners at zero cost.

Beginning with the powertrain improvements, a reprogrammed ECU lifts output from 592hp (600PS) to 616hp (625PS), while modifications were also made to the 7-Speed SSG transmission, which result in crisper throttle response and improved clutch control for gear changes that are both faster and smoother, according to the company.

While the 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint time remains the same at 3.1 seconds, the 0-200km/h (124mph) and 0-300km/h (186mph) times have been cut by 0.1 seconds to 8.8 seconds, and 1 second to 26.5 seconds, respectively. In addition, the 2013MY MP4-12C completes the quarter mile 0.1 seconds faster at 10.6 seconds with an exit speed of 219km/h (136mph). Top speed is lifted by 3km/h (2mph) to 333km/h (207mph).
