Innovative technology. Uncompromised performance
The 12C Spider takes open-top driving to a new level. A pure McLaren, its innovative design and Formula 1™ inspired technologies make it one of the most versatile and potent supercars on the road.
No roof. No compromises. That was the goal. When we developed the Retractable Hard Top (RHT), we set aggressive performance targets. Numbers that, at the time, seemed unachievable.
It took hundreds of hours of advanced computational fluid dynamics, weeks of wind tunnel testing and an obsession with perfection to create the contours of the 12C Spider. Technically beautiful and performance focused, the 12C Spider is an aerodynamic work of art.
We pioneered the use of carbon fibre in Formula 1™ and in production road cars. Our knowledge and experience of carbon fibre is unrivalled and our success with it is unmatched. For over 30 years, every car we have made has had carbon fibre at its core.
It took 4,000 hours to make each carbon fibre chassis on the McLaren F1. Twenty years of innovation later, it takes just 4 hours to produce the MonoCell at the heart of the 12C Spider.
