Luxury convertible manufacturer McLaren is no stranger to producing phenomenal supercars. One look at the 2013 McLaren MP4-12C Spider and you’ll under why we’re singing praises. The auto giant invited us to the Classic Car Club: Manhattan for a hands-on look at the stunner, where we captured the beauty on camera. So what fire is it packing under the hood? Try a 3.8-litre V8 capable of revving up 618hp and pushing the speedster from 0 – 62 mph in 3.1 seconds. Nice, huh? McLaren’s really pushing its new 165-lb. Carbon “MonoCell” chassis, which not only looks stunning in person, but “requires no additional strengthening.” Other beautiful redesigns you notice are the new steering wheel and “Diamond Cut” wheel design finishes. The 2013 McLaren MP4-12C Spider is set to go on sale at the end of the year starting around $265,750. We invite you to ride shotgun with EvolveTV.
