Video: McLaren 12C Spider looks stunning in new promo

McLaren has released a video of the new McLaren 12C Spider, showcasing its track performance and its drop-top roof function. The exceptional footage was taken using cinema-quality RED camera technology.

The new drop-top version of the MP4-12C uses the same 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine as the coupe, producing 460kW of power. It’s able to sprint from 0-100km/h in 3.1 seconds, the same as the coupe.

As previously reported, the 12C Spider is now on sale in Australia with deliveries set to take place in November. Prices start at $543,900. Check out the video below to see what all the fuss is about.
