REV TO THE LIMIT
Why McLaren Stopped Building The 12C. Welcome To The McLaren 650S Spider. It Is Amazing (& SO Much Better Than The 12C).
The McLaren 650S Spider is more than a modified 12C Spider. A quarter of its parts are new and owes much to the mighty P1. Steve Sutcliffe finds out if it can still thrill.
The McLaren 650S Spider costs some £20k more than the £190,000 coupe version, and it's worth every penny. Why? Because it can do just about everything the coupé can do dynamically yet adds a sizeable hit of extra sex appeal to go with it. And that arrives courtesy of a folding hard top roof that can glide up or down in but a few seconds, and which transforms the 650S into an even more exotic creature on the move. Steve Sutcliffe puts it to the test.
