Mclaren have now officially released its MP4-12C spider. It will feture the same engine  as the hard-top version, which means the new slightly tuned one. Resulting in 616hp instead of 572. 0-100 is calmed to be 3.1 sec. The drop-top reduces the topspeed to 204 mph instead of 207 as the hart -top. Mclarens carbonfibre monocoque, which is the base for the MP4-12C will keep the spider version as rigid as the coupe.

The droptop folds up or down in 17 seconds and the construction is somewhat similar to the The Ferrari 458 italia spider version. One feature that sets the Mclaren apart from the Ferrari is the fact that even the spider version has the transparent engine cover. The price in US dollars is  $265,750
