Pic of the Week: McLaren 12C Spider

As what seems like the 15th rain shower of the day drums on the roof of PH HQ, it seems like an open-top car is a singularly pointless device in the British summer.

But the new McLaren 12C spider does at least get its hard top in place in just 17 seconds and, as the video McLaren released yesterday seems to suggest, looks like quite a hoot in which to hoon around, rain or shine.

So we thought McLaren's latest road car deserved a spot of POTW action. And if you're wondering what all the brightness in the picture is, we believe it's known as sunshine...

    looks lovely, but it doesn't look authentic....??

    I agree with your there, too much light on the right side.

    My lottery winnings would have always gone on the 458 over the 12C in coupe form but I think for the Spider version it would be the other way round.

    I think the photo's been HDR'd to death hence the enhanced detail and a result in a 'fake' looking shot.

    still an excellent shot none the less and an even better subject, I think this looks better than the coupe!

    Would be a fantastic picture if lit properly...

    Car is damn fantastic, they're clever guys at McLaren!
