A Swiss McLaren 12C Owner Has Driven Over 80,000 Miles In Three Years!

While McLaren Automotive only launched in 2010, the British company has managed to establish itself as one of the world’s leading supercar manufacturers and built up quite an impressive following of enthusiasts.

Of those, Swiss businessman Urs Tschedin is one of the finest examples. Since purchasing his silver 12C Spider three and a half years ago, he has driven a rather incredible 81,000 miles and in the coming few years, expects to more than double that figure.

Tschedin uses his 12C Spider to visit the customers of his high-precision grinding machine business and travels throughout Europe all year round. While most consider a car like the 12C to be fiercely impractical, Tschedin says it suits his needs perfectly, offering a comfortable ride while still being fun to drive and having enough luggage space to cater for a few nights away from home. We guess having a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 right behind your head driving the rear wheels doesn’t hurt, either.

Congrats to Mr. Tschedin, a true petrolhead if ever we saw one. And in Switzerland, at that, where the police are notoriously draconian when it comes to enforcing speed limits. Not that we condone such behavior, but the 12C is the kind of car that can get you in trouble in second gear even when you’re not actually trying that hard.
