Separating the 2013 McLaren 12C from its direct competitors like the Ferrari 458 Italia and Porsche 911, is its advanced carbon fiber MonoCell chassis. The complete cell weighs just 75kg and was designed with the convertible model in mind so McLaren didn’t have to strengthen it in any way for the Spider.
