The New McLaren Spider, Coming Soon!
Thanks to the spies at CarMagazine, we can now confirm that the Spider variant of the phenomenal MP4-12C is underway and according to our info, will be an absolute knock out.
As we have previously reported, German firm Webasto developed the light-weight roof for McLaren, consisting of three panels that stack up behind the seats for storage. When to top is up, the 12C's shape looks just like the coupe, and will have the glass panel over the engine. We gather carbon fiber will used for the roof panel’s material.
Our renderings propose, as per what we have been informed, the rear of the vehicle will be constructed differently from the coupe, with the rear deck to be a relatively flat surface similar to the Ferrari 458 Spider. The best feature of the new rear deck, however, is there will be a clear cover so the engine will be able to be ogled by awestruck bystanders.
The Spider's Power will be via the same outstanding 3.8-liter V8 twin turbo that puts out of a massive 608 hp.
