McLaren 12C Spider in new short film

Marking the start of deliveries

McLaren launched their 12C Spider at last year's Pebble Beach Concours and now to mark the start of deliveries, the car will star in a short film. The film stars the 12C racing against professional snowboarder Chanelle Sladics at the treacherous Loveland Pass in Colorado.

Driving the 12C Spider is professional racer Rhys Millen. With experience in various forms of racing including holding the current record for Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, Millen also has experience in TV and film. Sladics, racing against Millen, is an eight time competitor in the winter X-Games.

The 12C features a 3.8 liter, V8 twin turbo with 616 bhp, powered by a seven-speed SSG dual-clutch transmission all on a 'MonoCell' chassis. The 'winter' powertrain setting sets the electronic support systems to max with shifting and toque control optimized to limit loss of traction.

The 12C Spider has base MSRP of $265,750 in the US (excluding titling, tags and taxes)

The video featuring the 12C Spider and Chanelle Sladics can be viewed on the official McLaren Automotive YouTube channel: Link text....www.youtube.com/McLarenAutomotiveTV
