McLaren has debuted a topless MP4-12C Spider ($265,750) and likes its hardtop cousin, the latest McLaren model goes from rest to 62 mph in just 3.1 seconds before topping out at 204 mph (compared to the 207 mph of the coupe). But under the hood, power still comes from a 616-horsepower 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. But for those that prefer a covered top, McLaren added a retractable hard top to the Spider that takes about 17 seconds to put either up or down, or so the company says. There’s also a wind deflector for users who don’t like the open road, which can be raised or lowered behind the seats.
