Here's McLaren's official launch video of the new open-top variant of its epic MP4-12C. Almost as fast as its hard-top sibling, the Spider gets the same 616hp twin-turbo V8 engine and a retractable hard top roof that takes less than 17 seconds to raise or lower and can be operated on the go at speeds of up to 30kph (19mph). Oh, and the MSRP, if you're interested, is $265,750.
