M cL A R E N 12C SPI DE R

THE McLAREN 12C SPIDER

OUR 134TH OPEN TOP CAR Our philosophy of innovating to win applies as readily to our road cars as it does to our racing cars. Every component is a bespoke design, engineered specifically for the 12C Spider. We’ve used McLaren engineering expertise and innovation to design the 12C Spider, redefining what you’d expect from a convertible.

EXHILARATION ENGINEERED Feel the rush of reaching 60mph in 3.1 seconds, racing up to 204mph, and hearing the roar of a V8 engine as your soundtrack. Driving open-air in the 12C Spider reconnects you to the world around you. Experience the open road and the thrill of driving it.


NO ROOF. NO STOPPING. Why stop? We’ve made sure the 12C Spider is capable of retracting its roof in less than 17 seconds at speeds of up to 19mph to make sure nothing interrupts your drive.

BUILT AROUND YOU To create the ultimate driving experience, there’s only one place to start: you. Everything about the 12C Spider’s cockpit and driving position is designed to optimise what you see, hear and experience. Every inch of the 12C Spider is bespoke and crafted to precision. The steering wheel has been modeled from digital scans of a World Championship winning drivers steering wheel for optimal ergonomics. The Formula 1 style rocker shift is designed to deliver you an unparalleled sense of control, and 12C Spider’s controls are distributed rationally according to how often you use them. This principle of simplicity has been applied to the whole interior to produce a consistent luxury feel that enhances the driving experience with every touch.


M cL A R E N 12C SPI DE R

TOP DOWN EXPERIENCE. TRACK CAR PERFORMANCE. The 12C Spider features the same 3.8 litre V8 engine found in the 12C. It delivers drivers 625PS and 443lb ft of power and torque, with efficient twin turbo technology accessing over 80% of power below 2000 rpm. With acceleration and pace rivaling the 12C, the 12C Spider is the no compromise convertible.

WEIGHT. OUR MORTAL ENEMY. A car’s weight saps performance. Our engineers have created weight-saving solutions to maximise power output and make the 12C Spider only 88lbs heavier than its hard top equivalent. Its automatic roof is built from lightweight materials, making it the lightest of any retractable hard top mechanism of any convertible on the road.

MAXIMUM TORSIONAL RIGIDITY The carbon fibre construction of the MonoCell provides much higher levels strength and rigidity than aluminium. Even without additonal reinforcment the 12C Spider handles every bit as well as the 12C. Even with the roof down, there’s no compromise on performance.

MINIMAL DRAG CO-EFFICIENT From decades of experience in racing, we understand the edge aerodynamics can give you. That’s why Formula 1 inspired technology is built into the Spider. Side-mounted radiators, a Formula 1 style diffuser and a flat under tray all combine to deliver maximum efficiency. The retractable hard top and tonneau cover have been designed to seamlessly integrate with the 12C’s body work, so that 12C Spider experiences a minimal increase in drag.

THE MONOCELL Built on the same groundbreaking carbon MonoCell chassis found at the centre of the 12C - the torsional rigidity of a carbon fibre construction brings a new dimension of performance to the 12C Spider. The structural integrity of the vehicle is built into the MonoCell. This ensures the 12C Spider remains lightweight at only 165lbs, preserving the performance and dynamic handling of a coupe whilst delivering the open top exhilaration of a convertible.


INSIDE THE 12C 12C Spider is built from technology inherited from McLaren’s Formula 1 team that’s since been banned on the track. Good thing the same rules don’t apply to the road.

BRAKE STEER Brake Steer cancels out understeer by applying precise braking force to the inside rear wheel. This pivots the car and enhances cornering performance. It was an innovation that was so effective in Formula 1, it was banned for giving McLaren too great an advantage over the opposition. But it’s an edge you can take on to the road.

ACTIVE AERODYNAMICS The 12C Spiders Airbrake generates up to 176lbs of drag when deployed, and ensures 50:50 weight distribution under heavy braking. This is the same amount of drag that is produced by the DRS wing on a Formula 1 car.

PROACTIVE CHASSIS CONTROL The 12C Spider has been designed with a hydraulically interconnected suspension system, to give drivers an uncompromised ride and handling on the road and on the track. Proactive Chassis Control and Adaptive Damping allows the 12C Spider to absorb impacts whilst maintaining roll stiffness, adjusting hundreds of times a second to ensure you get the best drive for the road you are on.

ROBERT BURNAND MACHINIST / FABRICATOR / INVESTOR NEWPORT BEACH 2012 McLAREN 12C – TITANIUM SILVER 10,700 MILES

WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CAR?

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE DRIVING ROAD?

My 1st car was a 1967 Mustang fastback.

My favorite driving road so far is Hwy 133 between Carbondale and Paonia, Colorado, over the McClure Pass. I was there late last summer and, having driven the road many times, I am familiar enough with it to have some fun in the 12C.

WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO McLAREN? What attracted me to McLaren is having worked in motor racing. I encountered McLaren cars at the track and, of course, following Formula 1.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE RESTAURANT? My favorite local restaurant would be Sapori.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FEATURE IN THIS CAR? My favorite feature of this car is the car itself.

WHAT IS YOUR BEST MEMORY IN YOUR 12C? My best memory in the 12C so far was the McLaren 50th Anniversary drive to Lake Arrowhead last fall.


WHAT WAS YOUR LONGEST ROAD TRIP IN THIS CAR? The longest road trip was a bit over 2,100 miles to Colorado and back. Average fuel consumption of 22.4 mpg, average speed 63mph. Best average was a 187 mile stint at 26.4 mpg, average speed 79mph.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CAR? My favorite car would be a McLaren MP4-12C.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE SPORTS TEAM? My favorite sports team is Vodafone McLaren Mercedes or whatever they will be this season.

HAVE YOU VISITED THE FACTORY?

WHO INSPIRES YOU?

I have not yet visited the factory.

What inspires me is life itself.

DO FOLLOW FORMULA ONE? WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE DRIVER?

RESUME YOUR CAR IN 3 WORDS.

My wife Lisa and I both follow Formula 1. My favorite driver is Lewis Hamilton.

DO YOU TAKE YOUR CAR ON THE TRACK? I have not tracked my car yet. McLaren Automotive let me track one of their cars last September which was really great.

FUN, FUN, FUN!

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW ABOUT McLAREN YOU DON’T ALREADY KNOW? Why didn’t they continue to develop the MP4-27 in 2013 instead of completely trying to reinvent the wheel with the MP4-28? Also, who is this season’s new sponsor?

EVENTS Cars & Coffee Irvine NOVEMBER 23, 2013 This past Saturday we brought to out a McLaren 12C Coupe and 12C Spider to our local Cars & Coffee event here in Irvine CA. It was a cold but very clear morning despite having some rainy weather last week. The morning sun and lack of fog provided the Californiaesque skyline we’ve all come to love & appreciate. Without further more, here are some quick snaps to recap our morning.

PI T L A N E N EWS

INTRODUCING THE 2014 McLAREN MERCEDES MP4-29 2014 marks a technical sea-change for Formula 1 cars. Gone are normally aspirated engines - a Formula 1 mainstay for a quarter of a century; in their place come 1.6-litre V6 power-units, which sophisticatedly integrate turbo-charging and turbo-compounding, fuel-flow restrictions, and a powerful energy recovery system (ERS).
