I have never been a fan of any super-car convertibles but I may have just found a car that will, haha, convert me into a believer. The new Mclaren 12C Spider can be described as a drop dead gorgeous, over the top fast exotic, with a modest $268,250 price tag. Now don’t let that number ruin your dream of owning a roof-less hyper vehicle because you need to consider what your getting for all that dough. The 12C Spider comes equipped with a 616-horsepower 3.8-liter V8 twin-turbo engine linked to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. It has a top speed of 204 mph and does a 0 to 62 mph pull in 3.1 seconds. So you have the internals of a super-car but what about the looks? Not to worry because the 12C will not disappoint. With its massive side grilles, 17 second hardtop power folding roof, and volcano red paint job, you will sure to be noticed. From any angle.
If your mind has now been set to purchasing one of these bad boys, check out the 12C Spider configurator, because sales of these cars won’t start till December 2012. If your financial status can’t handle a six figure car at the present moment, don’t forget to check out the pictures below.
