The official public reception for the McLaren MP4-12C Spider happened over the past weekend at the Gooding & Company auction tent at this weekend’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. At the event, McLaren Automotive announced that it will go on sale in the US priced at $265,750 with first US deliveries planned for early next year.
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. It features the same 3.8 liter V8 twin turbo engine with 625hp and an identical 3.1 second 0-100km/h time as the MP4-12C coupe. The Spider unveiled last weekend features the new volcano yellow paintwork.
For UK customers, McLaren already announced a £195,500 price tag. A £27,000 premium over the coupe.
