McLaren 12C Spider smiles from Brussels image

McLaren has recently brought the 12C Spider to the 2013 Brussels Motor Show, even if the British supercar is already available for order in most markets across the Old Continent.

After being officially presented to the public back in 2012, the McLaren 12C Spider is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the British based automaker bringing it to the 2013 Brussels Motor Show, where it managed to attract quite a crowd. The McLaren 12C Spider is the convertible version of the MP4-12C supercar and it’s powered by the same 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8 engine, producing a total output of 625 PS.

Power is being sent to the rear-wheel drive through a seven-speed SSG dual clutch transmission, which is allowing the 12C Spider to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds, the same as its solid roof brother. The quarter mile is done in 10.8 seconds at a top speed of 216 km/h (134 mph) and the model is burning an average of 11.7 liters of fuel every 100 km. CO2 emissions stop at 270 g/km. Deliveries for the McLaren 12C Spider have started in November, 2012, and the model is available for order in 22 countries across the globe.
