McLaren 12C Spider Overview
Prestige McLaren Bergen County in Ramsey, NJ has a nice variety of used McLaren sports cars, including the 2014 McLaren 12C Spider. The 2014 12C is incredibly fun to drive, powered by a monster 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 spitting out an astounding 616 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque, feeding a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with manual shiftability. The car sits on 19-inch wheels up front, 20-inches aft. The Spider version added just 88 pounds over the Coupe, due to the lightweight of the two-piece composite roof that takes just 17 seconds to automatically fold behind the driver. The top operates at car speeds up to 19 mph. The 12C Spider is designed around a MonoCell carbon-fiber tub to which the aluminum subframes are bolted, helping to account for its light weight.
The 2014 12C sports a double wishbone adaptive, hydraulic suspension that saves the weight of the sway bars that aren't required. When you go into Track Mode, the suspension and steering stiffen at the same time, thanks to a shared hydraulic pump. You can set Handling and Power to Track, Sport or Normal to control throttle mapping, gear shifts, traction control, steering firmness, spring rates and even the exhaust note. The 12C Spider has perfect proportions in an exciting array of vents, scoops and sculpted glass. The doors open at a 45-degree angle, just because they can.
The main benefit of buying a 2014 McLaren 12C Spider is the feeling of more than 600 horsepower behind your back with the open skies overhead. That’s hard to put a price tag on, but Prestige McLaren gives you a competitive one that you are not likely to beat. You get dead-accurate steering, instant reflexes and firm throttle control. If you fancy track driving, the Track mode setting unleashes the full fury of the 12C while tightening control. Traction control is there just in case, but for the brave, it can be defeated.
Of course, the 12C’s British heritage requires the two-seat interior be the last word in elegance and function. The carbon-fiber sculpted seats are comfortably bolstered. If you want to hear the engine better, just lower the Spider’s rear glass panel. Standard interior features include a 7-inch touchscreen display, Meridian 4-speaker sound system, intake sound generator, dual-zone climate control, bi-xenon headlights, front/rear parking sensors, full leather cabin, and cruise control. Look for features such as a sports exhaust system, electric and heated memory seats, tire pressure monitoring system and more.
Needless to say, Prestige McLaren goes over every square inch of its used 2014 McLaren 12C Spiders, replacing worn parts with genuine OEM ones. Our factory trained and certified mechanics wouldn’t dream of releasing the Spider for sale before they brought it up to like-new condition. Honestly, if we hid the odometer, we’d defy anyone buying the 12C pre-owned at Prestige McLaren from detecting its used instead of new.
