For your viewing pleasure, we’ve got a video which sees Rhys Millen, Pikes Peak International Hill Climb record-holder and Chanelle Sladics, Winter Games Medalist, race down the notoriously treacherous Loveland Pass. A 616-bhp McLaren 12C Spider vs. a skilled snowboarder, the video features the 12C showing off its ability in icy and snowy conditions. We’ll leave it at that and let you see who comes out victor.
McLaren sits among a very elite group of carmakers and with this, the MP4-12C Spider, they show us once again why they belong there. The drophead version of their MP4-12C is just as powerful as the original and features a retractable roof to keep things interesting. Power comes from McLaren’s 616-horsepower 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8, which lets this beauty break the 200-mph with a top speed of 204 mph. The top can go up or down in about 17 seconds with a power wind deflector behind the seats to keep the aerodynamics intact even at high speeds and the wind blowing through your hair. The McLaren MP4-12C Spider is priced at $265,750. More images below.
