McLaren 12C Spider facelift spied image

The facelifted version of the McLaren 12C Spider has been recently spotted while being tested on public roads.

McLaren may have launched the 12C Spider back in 2011 but that doesn’t mean that the model can’t get a fresh look, and the first spy photos to stand proof of the upgrade have been taken by our photographers. The model in question won’t get some drastic changes and in fact these will stop on the front fascia, as you can see from the images posted below, bringing the drop top supercar closer in terms of design to the brand new P1.

As for the engine, the 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 will still be used, probably in the same configuration, 625 PS. The unit will be mated to the same seven-speed SSG dual clutch transmission, which will send power to the rear-wheel drive. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint will be done in just 3.1 seconds and the quarter mile is done in 10.8 seconds. The average fuel consumption in the 12C Spider stands at 11.7 L / 100 km and the CO2 emissions stop at 270 g/km. The facelifted 12C Spider will probably be unveiled during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, in September.
