There’s not enough superlative to describe the McLaren MP4-12C Spyder . Every so often, even we get a little lost for words when talking about a supercar of the 12C Spyder’s stature.
That, in a nutshell, has also been the go-to expression with Florida-based tuner Ultimate Auto.
It’s produced some really wicked programs in the past couple of months and the one for the 12C Spyder is about as impressive as it gets. The really cool thing about what Ultimate Auto did to the 12C Spyder is that it gave the supercar some custom enhancements you normally wouldn’t see other tuners even bother getting into.
Not only does it give the supercar a unique look, but it also makes it an undeniable stunner, something Ultimate Auto has prided itself on recently.
And lest we forget, this British rocket also comes with a 3.8-liter V-8 twin-turbo engine combined with a 7 Speed SSG dual-clutch transmission, allowing it to produce 616 horsepower and sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds with a top speed of 204 mph.

About the only thing cooler than the name is the actual treatment done by Ultimate Auto to make it sparkle before our very eyes. The Volcano Red finish of the MP4-12C Spyder already makes the supercar pop out but once you add the 3M clear bra, it adds a new dimension to the look, essentially adding the touch of gloss while also protecting the paint at speeds in excess of 180 mph.
It’s Got A Radar Detector
Supercars are a magnet for radar detectors, so what better way to combat that than by having one inside the car. The Escort 9500ci radar detector / laser diffuser installed within the 12C Spyder ensures that this supercar can battle wits with law enforcement authorities, making it even harder to tame and catch it. Keep in mind, however, that radar detectors are illegal in two areas in the U.S.: Virginia and Washington, DC. In Canada, you can only use radar detectors in Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan.
More Aesthetic Goodies
Whether it’s the smoked lights, the llumar ceramic window film or the carbon fiber trim wraps, Ultimate Auto spared no expense in dressing up this 12C Spyder to make it stand out from the rest of its contemporaries. And as a final touch, the tuner also dressed up the interior with fancy red stitching to complement the Volcano Red coat of the body.
