McLaren, the British-made super vehicle, has beaten seventeen other group winners to the night’s top prize at the Middle East Motor Awards this week.
The Middle East Motor Awards are the region’s most honored automotive awards, and are reviewed by a jury board, which consists of 17 of its foremost motoring journalists.
At the presentment in Dubai on November 28, the McLaren 12C was adjudged ‘Best Supercar’ but then moved on to also be declared the vehicle of the year, hitting 50 cars, which had been considered overall for each of the 17 prize sections.
What turns the honor so striking is that the car has only been on sale for a period of 12 months and 2011-2012 marks the firm’s initial year as a factual production-car maker.
Of the prize, Mark Harrison, Regional Director for Middle East and Africa statedd: “To bag ‘Best Supercar’ in the Middle East is an astonishing success coming in our very first complete year as a luxury sports vehicle maker. But to win the overall ‘Car of the Year’ title is incredible.”
In explaining the judges’ verdict, the function’s organizer, Saif Al Midfa stated: “The 12C is a obvious champ for ‘Car of the Year’. McLare”s entry model is a eye-catching car and praiseworthy of making the final wish list for any automotive fan.”
