Last week we had the reveal of the convertible version of the MP4-12C – the McLaren 12C Spider – and now we get the first video of McLaren’s convertible supercar.
We did think McLaren would have released a video of the new 12C Spider when it was revealed last week, but they’ve obviously got the hang of their new video software now so we finally get to see the 12C Spider in action.
McLaren has used cinema-quality RED camera technology to capture the 12C Spider in terrific detail as it first performs on track and then traverses the stunning roads in the mountains of Andalucia.
Early on in the video we get the money shot of the 12C Spider’s retractable roof in action – and when the car is on the move too – with the raising or lowering of the roof taking just 17 seconds.
It’s an impressive introduction to what is, by any measure, an impressive car. The only downside we see for McLaren is that no one will want the MP4 12C when they can have the 12C Spider.
Enjoy the McLaren 12C Spider in action
