IMO, Very few company's can pull of an open top version of the car that looks good or better with the roof off....And McLaren isn't one I'd them...

maybe there might have been a tail wind... or maybe Mclaren are deliberately claiming lower top speed figures

I could imagine McLaren to built a MP4 12C without roof, like SLR Stirling Moss or Aston Martin CC100 Speedster.

And if it looks like I imagine, it looks great! :)

Normally I'm not a fan of convertibles, but this one looks tight, I like it.

Very impressive. The MP4-12C Spider is just slightly slower at the track than the coupe brother, and still remains to be a top-performer. Certainly, this is one of the best topless car ever.

Probably better conditions + 25-more-hp. .

mmhh very strange ....
I read the driver is Davide Fugazza and not the historical test driver M. Giani may be this could partially explain the results.

This Mclaren is an Insanly fast car.

It is realy weird that Ferrari hasnt made a lifting of 458 Italia...

458 is still an amazing car in every aspect Mp4-12c has atm 625 Hp and new 911 Turbo S is coming :) :)...And 458 is still the same as it was in 2009.

Have seen spider and coupe together and for first time ever, IMO, someone has made a spider look better than the coupe. Everyone I know who has actually seen both agree. The thing is stunning.

@supercharger, I agree 100% I have never ever seen a convertible that looks better than it's fixed head counterpart, I've always felt that with convertibles, that you're missing part of the car.


User avatar

supercharger  5y ago

when supercars like this are made in to a convertible it just ruins the way it looks the smooth shape off the car just gets ruined when they turn them in to a convertible

the coupe version off supercars are always better looking in my opinion they have a smoother shape

I saw a MP4 coupe last week in Munich.
It looked so cool and sounded great!

But in my opinion the Spyder version looks even better.

@BR2' so far I have only seen the coupe version in person, but I watched the Car and Driver video of the Spider and I thought it looked fine. I like the big side intakes on the McLaren a lot. And the rear is wide and low, and pleasant.


User avatar

BR2'  5y ago

....I think they ruined it making it an open top car, it doesnt have that nice shape any more. Doesnt look right as a drop top, I was never a Huge fan of the MP4, I Ofcourse wouldnt call it stunning, evin in real life fomr, but good looking i would. I just wish the car looked, more "Complete"

Viking  5y ago

Absolutely stunning car. I have only seen the coupe version in person so far (also stunningly beautiful). I am glad that they haven't messed up the styling. A beautiful mid-engined spider.
