And more durable
John Serely Jul 03, 2012
I'm sooo glad they went with the retractable hardtop, I think they are a lot better than soft tops

Description: To transform the 12C, McLaren contracted Webasto - the same German outfit that crucially tiled the trick roof on the McLaren's target: the Ferrari 458 Spider. The result is the thrill of open-air...

Car and driver actually got a 2.9 sec 0-60 in the coupe
Phillip Holbrook Jul 03, 2012
Those numbers are really impressive.
Description: The roof can also be raised or lowered while moving at up to 19 mph. The 12C Spider can hit 196 mph with the roof down and 204 mph with it up. Don't expect that ideal to come cheap, though: prici...

Caint wait untill Hennessy Performance gets there hands on this one
Mike Casselton Jul 04, 2012
Maury, I can't afford any of these cars either. However, if I wanted to read about "affordable" cars I would go elsewhere and leave this site the way it is.
Keenan Casteel Jul 04, 2012
@Kasey Maury's lame what?
Kelun Wang Jul 03, 2012
You gotta have a dream right? Something to look up at. If not i guess your stuck working minimum wage jobs stuck in a trailer driving a beater to work everyday.
Carlton Sofocusedon Green Jul 03, 2012
In communist russia maury outspends YOU
Jackson Michael Jul 03, 2012
I dot remember a comment by Maury not involving saving money
Grant McHendry Jul 03, 2012
@Maury no, just no. Get out.
Kasey Cook Jul 03, 2012
@Maury. This car is "affordable" for some. Apparently not you. P.s. your lame
Chris Gaines Jul 03, 2012
I don't want to be reading about the safety of a corolla or anything. this gives us something to aspire to haha!
Maury L. Meredith Jul 03, 2012
Can they discuss more about affordable cars?
Sebastian Grey Jul 03, 2012
It is if you live in California.
Paul Dickey Jul 03, 2012
November...the perfect time to get your new convertible.
Kris C. Lopez Jul 05, 2012
I never liked convertible/open top conversions of supercars but this and the Veyron gs are the only exceptions
Nigel Craven Jul 04, 2012
I want one of these so bad I'm seriously considering putting the kids on eBay!!
Stefan G. Whittaker Jul 04, 2012
I'm about as critical of a person as they come, but I'm speechless. Bar none...McLaren now manufactures the sexiest car on the planet. Tip of the Hat to McLaren on a job very well done.
Keenan Casteel Jul 04, 2012
Ferrari is better.
Terrance Parker Jul 03, 2012
It actually looks better than the hard top
Kevin Clark Jul 03, 2012
Sooo worth the 19k
Nicolai Stålstrøm Dalen Jul 03, 2012
Sexy without a roof. Love it.
Vatsal Patel Jul 03, 2012
This. Is. Perfection. p.s. art brought to machinery.
canon4487 Jul 03, 2012
that is just what this car needed! hadnt been a huge fan of its "bland" looks
Kasey Cook Jul 03, 2012
Wow. Amazing looking car.
Nick Schnee Jul 03, 2012
I'd take this over an 458 any day. British car industry FTW!
Thibault Leroy Jul 03, 2012
i think it looks great but i would definetly take the 458 spyder over this
Phillip Holbrook Jul 03, 2012
No no Ferrari spanker.
Petre Draghici Jul 03, 2012
Agree. Great competitor for Ferrari
Jackson Michael Jul 03, 2012
That looks amazing
Mohammed Yusuf Patel Jul 11, 2012
Looks brilliant...
Yianni Apostolopoulos Jul 06, 2012
Looks too much like the Ferrari 458
Kris C. Lopez Jul 05, 2012
@ghee if you read the article it said that McLaren contacted the same people who had their hand in the roof design of the 458
Antonio Ramthun Jul 04, 2012
IMO this car look much better than the 458. Perfection
tysquirrel10s Jul 03, 2012
@ dan it is so it will protect the driver in case of a roll over
Louis Ramon Cortez Jul 03, 2012
I'm not a fan of convertibles, but I love this one.
Dan LaBruna Jul 03, 2012
Is it just me or does it seem like it's front windshield is much more elongated than in other spiders?
Terrance Parker Jul 03, 2012
It was only a matter of time
Ghee Buttersnaps Jul 03, 2012
Looks amazing! But looks like they stole ferraris folding roof design and added a clear engine cover
americanmuscle Jul 03, 2012
I don't like how they make it look happy
Samuel Bonorden Jul 03, 2012
I've never been a big fan of this car
Kasey Cook Jul 03, 2012
@bold cars. It looks long because the driver is tiny.
Kevin Jugelz Pooe Jul 03, 2012
This car was meant to be a convertible
Steven Nevets Jul 03, 2012
I agree... Looks way better than the coupe. I'm digging the different color (carbon fiber?) panel in the side intake too.
Dillon Magee Jul 03, 2012
That is amazing. Mclaren did a great job with this. Looks better than the coupe.
Avery Williams Jul 03, 2012
@boldcars Well since it is a hardtop convertible, I would think it would be slightly longer.
Sebastian Grey Jul 03, 2012
How is having the exhaust come out of the middle of the rear fascia conservative?
Paul Dickey Jul 03, 2012
Well that's unfair to compare buying the f1 to buying this.
Randy Hjelm Jul 03, 2012
Not sure just know that these cars are not my favorite... They are just lacking something I think their design was too conservative they needed to make it represent mclaren... Not a grandpa sports car company. Still would by the old F1 over it anyday
Wyatt Gordon Jul 03, 2012
It looks much better as a spider than as a coupe. Here, it actually looks full of emotion. As a coupe, its just boring to look at
boldcars Jul 03, 2012
is it just me or does the top down give the appearance of the car looking really long?
Jeetinder Singh Lola Jul 06, 2012
458 is shit compared to this
Miko Reginella Jul 05, 2012
@edmond Exactly why I would take a 458 over this. Though I never drove one, I take other people's word for it...
Lee Goodman Jul 04, 2012
it looks even better with the roof down :)
Jackson Michael Jul 03, 2012
I don't see any 458....
Edmond Gebara Jul 03, 2012
Hey guys, I was lucky enough to test drive this beast a few weeks back ( friend of ours works for car middle east)... Unfortunately there's no soul in this car... Whatsoever... Hate to say it but it's pure function over emotion...
Nicolai Stålstrøm Dalen Jul 03, 2012
Id rather have this over a 458 aswell.
Logan Delony Jul 03, 2012
I'd rather have this than the convertible 458
Maaz Mansoor Jul 03, 2012
Still prefer the 458 spider
Avery Williams Jul 03, 2012
Best picture of it!
Wyatt Gordon Jul 03, 2012
Much better than the coupe
Bruno Rocha Jul 05, 2012
This is so much better than a 458...
John Hansell Jul 06, 2012
A solid spoke rim would probably look better but I like this convertible version.
Thibault Leroy Jul 03, 2012
yeah the rims look like aftermarket rims
Calogero Rumeo Jul 03, 2012
Car and color looks beautiful but I think a better choice of rims would make it even nicer.
cardude2000 Jul 03, 2012
This car is bleaping sexy!!!!
Dale Fredriks Jul 03, 2012
Is it just me, or does this look a lot like the 918 Spider?
Jessie General Jul 03, 2012
Sporty with a hint of luxury nice!
