The McLaren MP4-12C Spider has officially landed in North America. On display in Monterey, the convertible version of the British supercar boasts a retractable hardtop that can slip from fully up to completely stowed in around 17 seconds. Even with its roof structure stowed, the MP4-12C Spider remains a formidable performance car. The sprint to 60 mph takes just 3.1 seconds, and it tops out at 207 mph. Like its fixed-roof twin, the Spider makes 616 horsepower from a 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine.

As one Autoblog staffer commented, the car looks good enough to lick. Twice. Delicious? Yes. Cheap? Most certainly not. The McLaren MP4-12C Spider commands a price tag of $265,750, well north of the $241,800 the company asks for the coupe. You can get a closer look at the drophead McLaren by picking through the gallery above.

      I would keep the top up 95% of the time anyway. The best part if that you can still see the engine when the top is up or down, a major faux pas on Ferrari's part with the 458 Spider.

      If I had the $$$ I would buy it. Then I would drive it and stop at every 7-11 and place where people could see me in it in this whole state, I love this machine.

      I saw a matte black spider in Vegas on 4th of July weekend. Three possible explanations: 1) it was imported, it was one of the first deliveries, and/or this article is a tab bit late.
