The 12C Spider made its global debut in North America during the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance last year. The second model from the British high performance sportscar company is lightweight with a high powered engine which boasts 616 bhp, a unique Retractable Hard Top (RHT) folding roof system, and a carbon 'MonoCell' chassis identical to that of the groundbreaking 12C. The 3.8-litre V8 twin turbo engine is transmitted to the car's rear driven wheels through a seven-speed SSG dual-clutch transmission.
A dedicated 'Winter' powertrain setting on the 12C and 12C Spider sets all electronic support systems to a maximum intervention level, with gearshift strategy and torque control optimised to limit any loss of traction.
