McLaren X-1 Concept was not the British firm’s only debut at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The new McLaren 12C Spider also made its debut at the event. Well, to be more precise McLaren’s retractable hard-top convertible was presented by McLaren Automotive Managing Director Antony Sheriff at the Gooding Auction. Looking splendid in yellow, the new Spider is poised to add some excitement to the 12C’s compelling mixture of speed and handling.
With a lightweight, high powered engine developing an incredible 625 PS (616 bhp), unique RHT folding roof system that may be operated while on the move, and carbon ‘MonoCell’ chassis identical to that of the groundbreaking 12C, the 12C Spider is a luxury convertible sports car that offers prospective owners a unique combination of spectacular performance with remarkable usability.
The new McLaren 12C Spider is now available to order from bespoke new McLaren retailers across the globe. First deliveries to customers are planned for November this year.
