Now that McLaren has solved the problems associated with the MP4-12C Coupe, it’s time to focus our attention to the Spyder version due to be unveiled later in 2012. British magazine, CAR, was lucky enough to get ahold of the first images of the vehicle without any camouflage or decoy body panels. As seen in this image, the MP4-12C SPyder is as gorgeous as its coupe brother and will be offered with a folding metal roof - just like its competitor, the Ferrari 458 Italia Spyder.

The McLaren MP4-12C Spyder’s three-piece roof will open and close in about 17 seconds and will operate at speeds of up to 5 mph. The rest of the car will be identical to the coupe version: it will be powered by a V8 engine with an output of 592 HP and 442 lb-ft of torque. However, performance figures won’t be similar because the Spyder will be heavier, so no one should expect the same 205 mph top speed.

Wow! The body paint is very classy as well as the windows on it. I want to see the whole image of this concept, especially the interior design. This could be a tough competitor as soon it will be revealed.

The leaked image is kind of great and a bit clearer. Based on the image, the Spyder has a lot of stuff to boast at. It’s 205mph maximum speed and 592hp. It’s definitely gorgeous to me.
