Received this from the McLaren Automative News e-mail this afternoon, it had the same photo embedded:


Dear,

It’s been quite a year for McLaren Automotive. Just 12 months ago, the first 12C high performance sports car was sold and McLaren opened its very first retailer showroom with Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton at One Hyde Park, London.

Since then, sales of the 12C have topped 1,000 and McLaren has expanded its retailer network into 21 markets around the world.

But this is only the start of the McLaren story. Today, we are excited to share with you the announcement of our second model, one that will stir the soul more than any McLaren sports car yet: the 625PS, twin-turbo V8-engined, open roofed 12C Spider.

The 12C Spider is based on the same super stiff carbon fibre MonoCell chassis as its hardtop sibling and so will be just as dynamic to drive. But removing the roof will dial up the sensations experienced, the emotions felt and the noise heard. Especially at the speeds the 12C Spider will be capable of. And true to McLaren’s ethos of offering high performance without compromise, the 12C Spider will be more usable than any car this exciting has a right to be.

One man used to excitement behind the wheel is Jenson Button. We spoke to him at last weekend’s European Grand Prix about what speed means to him, the connection he feels with the machine he drives and about what he senses when driving a 300 km/h open top car. But is he talking about his MP4-27 Formula 1 car or the 12C Spider?

More details on this truly beautiful sports car will be released soon, and we will be in touch to let you know about these shortly. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the preview.

Kind Regards,

hopefully my dealer will be in touch some time soon.... :/
Email them the links to all of the announcements and ask them if they are serious about selling you a car. I have corresponded with my guy (who is British) 3 times in the last 2 weeks.

McLaren must have the tightest embargo in the world - not one leak, even from them yet today. :(

Racing Green has disappeared from the color wheel :( in its place there's a new "Mercury Red".

No sign of the rumored 'Volcano Yellow' yet.
