About McLaren:
Drawing on 50 years of racing success, McLaren has created some of the most iconic and exhilarating road cars the world has ever seen. The 12C is the first McLaren designed and built production car since the legendary F1. A pure McLaren, its innovative design and Formula 1™ inspired technologies make it one of the most versatile and potent supercars on the road.

The 12C was created at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, UK under the same roof as McLaren Racing and the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1 team, so it's no surprise that ‘performance’ lies at the heart of the 12C and the McLaren Automotive team responsible for its design, development, engineering and now manufacture. The 12C’s performance is clearly influenced by the McLaren F1 and Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren road car projects. Most notably, in the competitive step-changes seen on the 12C through carbon composite engineering, packaging, and aerodynamics.

Nothing drives like a McLaren because nothing has been designed quite like a McLaren. In McLaren's language, convertible does not mean compromise. Reduced weight doesn't mean reduced strength. Power doesn't have to come at the expense of efficiency. Dynamic handling doesn't mean you have to sacrifice road comfort. No other sports car on the road today adheres to such an uncompromising philosophy. But then there's no other groundbreaking technology company quite like McLaren.

About the James Beard Foundation
Founded in 1986, the James Beard Foundation's mission is to celebrate, nurture, and honor America's diverse culinary heritage through programs that educate and inspire. A cookbook author and teacher with an encyclopedic knowledge about food, James Beard, who died in 1985, was a champion of American cuisine. He helped educate and mentor generations of professional chefs and food enthusiasts, instilling in them the value of wholesome, healthful and delicious food. Today the Beard Foundation continues in the same spirit by administering a number of diverse programs that include educational initiatives, food industry awards, scholarships for culinary students, publications, chef advocacy training, and thought-leader convening. The Foundation also maintains the historic James Beard House in New York City’s Greenwich Village as a “performance space” for visiting chefs. In September of 2012, the Foundation launched the Diplomatic Culinary Partnership with the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Protocol and helped create the American Chef Corps as a way to champion American chefs abroad, promote American food products and foster an interest in American culinary culture and history through international programs and initiatives.
