    To promote Grid 2, Codemasters is releasing a set of three videos that feature Chris Harris.

    Video: McLaren MP4-12C Spider clocks 213 mph, faster than official top speed
    1369947420

    With an official top speed of 204 miles per hour, there's no reason to ever think of the McLaren MP4-12C Spider as anything like "slow."

    Official: McLaren debuts topless MP4-12C Spider
    1341328380

    There are certain elements the world can always use more of. Chief among those is, of course, beer, although convertible supercars capable of cresting 200 mph certainly make our list as well.
