McLaren set to roll out the all new MP4 12C Spider by the beginning of November
|   Friday, October 19, 2012
The all new MP4 12C is McLaren's flag ship product and the vehicle just got better in terms of performance and exterior looks with the launch of the all new MP4 12C Spider. McLaren has planned and planted this vehicle strategically and it takes on the Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder and the Porsche 911 Carrera Turbo Convertible head on.

Priced at 195,500 Pounds, the Spider has been placed 3436 Pounds below the Gallardo Spyder and the vehicle is a performing genius.
Like the Ferrari, the roof of the MP4 12C is folded gracefully within 17 seconds and this can be operated till speeds of 30 MPH. However, with all the excess technical improvements, the Spider weighs just 40 kg more than the Coupe and this has been possible due to the drive train improvements.

The MP4 12C Spider displaces 616 BHP, over the Coupe's 598 BHP and the V8 engine has been tuned to deliver optimum output. The Spider also features better overall fuel efficiency of 24.8 MPG Over the Coupe's 21.2 MPG. Peak acceleration has also been improved as the Spider develops an additional 500 BHP. Torque production has also been increased to 442 ft lb and an improvement in the transmission means that the seven speed automated transmission provided more power than the Coupe.

Not that the transmission on the Coupe was bad, but this is just better. Gear shifts can be made faster and as a result an increase in acceleration is inevitable. These engine modifications are however available for the owners of the MP 4 12 C as well and all McLaren service centers are providing the necessary upgrades. Once the roof is pulled up, there is no difference between the MP 4 12 C Coupe and Spider and the differences are felt once the roof is down.

Top end speed has been increased and this is due to the enhancement in the engine and drive train features. The deep engine growl is one of the features which attract the driver more than anything on the vehicle and every time the engine is revved an inspiring thrill to drive engulfs the person behind the wheel. The Spider is very agile and as a result taking corners are a specialty of this machine. The fiber glass chassis does its best to reduce weight as well as keep the vehicle strong and on its wheels.
The all aluminum and carbon fiber exterior is an added incentive on this machine and like its predecessor the Spider is very fast.

Exterior modifications have not taken place and on the interior and exterior basis the Spider is similar to the Coupe. Featuring a top speed of 205 MPH with acceleration from 0 – 60 MPH coming in 3.1 seconds, the MP 4 12 C Spider is typically fast. Deliveries are expected to start by the beginning of November and McLaren expects 80 percent of the present MP 4 12 C owners to opt for this vehicle.
