FAB Design is a Swiss supercar tuning company who in the past have created some, shall we say “controversial” designs. The odd looking Mercedes-McLaren SLR Desire from 2009 being one of their more extreme offerings. However for the 2012 Geneva Motor Show FAB Design have pulled out something rather nice. The McLaren MP4-12C Terso features a number of comprehensive body modifications, but this time FAB Design have actually managed to improve the look of the car on which it is based. The standard McLaren MP4-12C is almost always given a little bit of criticism for being a little too bland. FAB Design’s upgrades are definatley not bland. But they also compliment, rather than clash with, the overall character of the MP4-12C.
From the front the FAB Design McLaren MP4-12C Terso almost looks like a bigger, beefier version of the stunning Artega GT. The gentle curving air intakes of the standard McLaren have been replaced with more aggressive angular openings. The front bumper is completely new, as are the side intakes and rear bumper. Two new spoilers have also made it onto the car, one at the rear, and one mounted just ahead of the windscreen.
Power upgrades for the FAB Design McLaren MP4-12C Terso include a new stainless steel sports exhaust. Power output has been improved from 592 horsepower to 680 horsepower, while the torque figure has seen an equally impressive leap from 443 lb-ft to 527 lb-ft. The 0-62 time for the car is just 3 seconds, and the top speed is 213 mph.
FAB Design only intend to build five examples of the MP4-12C Terso.
