McLaren Automotive is featuring the new McLaren 12C Spider on a high quality short film at its official YouTube channel at youtube.com/mclarenautomotivetv. The start of the short film centers on a 12C Spider, finished in glorious Volcano Red, cruising in high speed on track and then proceeding to the winding mountain roads of Andalucía in Southern Spain. The scenes on the short film underscore the 12C Spider’s positioning as a luxury convertible sports car that provides a dynamic mix of performance and usability. Early in the short film, the 12C Spider has its Retractable Hard Top lowered while it cruises, highlighting the model’s unique trait that rival sports cars don’t have. The 12C Spider could completely retract its hard top in just less than 17 seconds. The short film features McLaren Automotive Test Driver and British Touring Car Championship star Mat Jackson who demonstrates why the carmaker believes it has developed a sports car that includes ‘open-top thrills’ in a set of technology packages inspired by its Formula 1 race cars.
According to Antony Sheriff, McLaren Automotive Managing Director, Formula 1 technology DNA runs on McLaren cars and the 12C Spider gives drivers a great opportunity to create their perfect driving experience. Sheriff remarked that the short film, shot using cinema-quality RED camera technology, captured the exhilarating aspects of driving the 12C Spider, either top up or top down.
