McLaren 12C Spider


The first road car since the iconic F1, the exquisite 12C is engineered to perfection. Everything you see. Everything you touch. Every line, surface and detail of the 12C’s design enhances the car’s performance and the thrill of the drive.


Simple. Elegant. Beautifully crafted. Everything inside the 12C Spider, from the seating alignment to the position of the dials, has been meticulously designed around you.

When the roof is up, lowering the glass floods the cabin with the delightful notes coming from the twin-turbo V8. Open the roof and the screen automatically adopts the optimum aerodynamic position to minimise wind buffeting.

Inspired by nature and engineered to perfection, every line, surface and detail of the 12C Spider enhances the performance of the car - and the thrill of open-top driving.

The 12C Spider comes to life with the roof down. The performance characteristics don’t change, but the experience does. The open road, weather, wind and the thundering soundtrack of the McLaren V8. Nothing feels like it.

Mixed by hand. Painted by hand. Finished to perfection. Our 3-stage, Formula 1™ inspired paint technology ensures the colour, tint, lustre and finish of the 12C Spider’s paintwork is flawless. It also keeps the paint weight to an absolute minimum.

Reducing wheel weight is more effective than removing weight from any other part of the car, which is why we obsess over every detail of our wheels. Mass is stripped. Strength is increased. Performance is enhanced.

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

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.

McLaren 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.
