McLaren Automotive has announced its second model, the 620bhp, twin-turbo V8-engined, open roofed 12C Spider. The 12C Spider is based on the same super stiff carbonfibre MonoCell chassis as its hardtop sibling and is claimed to drive just as well as its hard-topped sister.
One man used to excitement behind the wheel is Jenson Button. McLaren questioned him at last weekend’s European Grand Prix about what speed means to him, the connection he feels with the machine he drives and about what he senses when driving a 190mph open top car. But is he talking about his MP4-27 Formula 1 car or the 12C Spider? Go to www.youtube.com/mclarenautomotivetv to find out.
More information on this new addition to the McLaren Automotive range will be released in the next few days when ordering commences across the company’s network of retailers.
