McLaren MP4-12C Spider Makes Detroit Debut
We already know the details. The 12C Spider gets power from a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 making 616 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, where split-second shifts are popped off with steering-wheel-mounted paddles.
The McLaren 12C Spider costs $268,250 and is on sale now in North America. That seems like a lot, but it includes two soft travel bags that fit under the hood. It’s basically a steal.
