McLaren’s MP4-12C Spider

Pictures of McLaren’s MP4-12C Spider were made public.

The car is identical mechanically to the recently updated MP4-12C Coupe and was fitted with a retractable folding metal hard top by the British supercar maker, that is unique to the vehicle and can fold away in under 17 seconds, according to McLaren.

The retractable roof can be manoeuvred while on the move, more specifically at speeds of up to about 29km/h. This is in fact one characteristic that is going to appeal to many future owners.

A new lightweight alloy wheel designs with a diamond-turn finish, a vehicle lift system to make travelling over speed bumps smoother and new interior and exterior finishes are other features that are worth being taken into consideration.

The newly uprated version of the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine is going to be under the hood. Weighing in at 1474kg, the Spider can reach 100km/h in 3.1sec hitting a top speed of about 326km/h. The McLaren Spider is expected to launch in the UK in November 2012 starting at a price of at £195,500.
