PEBBLE BEACH, Aug 22 — McLaren unveiled its MP4-12C Spider, a cabriolet version of its 625hp supercar, at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
The 12C Spider is based on the MP4-12C, using the same chassis and propelled with the same powerful engine.
Built for speed, the supercar is just one notch below the model it was based on. “The Spider will sprint from 0-100kph as quickly as the Coupe (3.1 seconds) while losing only two tenths to 160kph (9 seconds plays 8.8). Top speed is 326kph, against 331kph for the Coupe,” reported PistonHeads.com, and its fuel consumption and emissions haven’t changed.
The McLaren MP4-12C Spider is available to order for £195,500 (RM975,000), and the first vehicles out of the factory will start shipping in 2013. — AFP/Relaxnews
