Speaking with CarAdvice, McLaren Sydney's spokesperson, Greg Duncan, confirmed the news.

"We anticipate seeing the first cars here in November," said Mr Duncan. "The price of the MP4-12C is still to be confirmed, but at this stage we're looking at around $500,000."

That puts it right into Lamborghini Gallardo LP-570-4 Superleggera and Ferrari 458 Italia territory. But unlike its naturally aspirated Italian rivals, the McLaren MP4-12C uses two turbochargers bolted onto its 3.8-litre V8, giving it a power figure of 441kW and 600Nm of torque.

0-100km/h is dispensed with in 3.0 seconds with a top speed of well over 320km/h - the MP4-12C is a supercar in every sense of the word.
