McLaren MP4-12C Spider in Action

The new 2013 McLaren MP4-12C Spider was officially released last last week and can now be seen in action for the first time with the launch of a short film.

Shot using cinema-quality RED camera technology, the film begins with a 12C Spider finished in glorious Volcano Red in action on track, before it traverses the winding mountain roads of Andalucía in Southern Spain.

The McLaren MP4-12C Spider gets the same McLaren engineered monocoque chassis from the Coupe weighing just 75kg. It required no additional strengthening as the MP4-12C was originally designed as a convertible. The folding roof mechanism adds just 40kg of weight to the whole package and the hard top can be retracted at the touch of a button.

It takes just 17 seconds for the electronic mechanism to lower the roof into the area under the tonneau. This can be done at speeds up to 30km/h. The MP4-12C Spider also gets an electronically operated rear windscreen which acts as a wind deflector. This can be raised or lowered when the roof is raised to allow extra engine noise to enter the cabin.
