What is the Cars at Michael Kors Advertisement? McLaren 12C Spider

Contemporary fashion designer Michael Kors recently published a new advertisement on Elle, Vogue, Cosmopolitan and other fashion magazines. There is nothing unusual with this, however I noticed that Michael Kors decided to use the McLaren 12C Spider. McLaren 12C Spider designed by the legendary car designer Frank Stephenson and offers state-of-art performance.
How I understand it was McLaren? Very simple! The seats, wind mirror and how the doors open upside. I assume PR agency of Michael Kors and their PR department never thought that someone will able to identify the vehicle but I did it :)

What Car Lady Gaga Drives? McLaren MP4-12C Spider

Lady Gaga drives a McLaren MP4-12C Spider is the answer for the question, what car Lady Gaga drives? Actually she is not driving, she is sitting at passenger seat. Anyway, we consider Lady Gaga owns a McLaren MP4-12C Spider!

And this indicates that Lady Gaga has knowledge on cars. Because, McLaren MP4-12C Spider is a Formula 1 car packed in an everyday drivable design. The technologies involved with the MP4-12C Spider is not quite common to spot at any other cars, therefore people who prefer MP4-12C means they know about cars!

Two weeks ago, I spotted the design director of Frank Stephenson driving a McLaren MP4-12C Spider and this week Lady Gaga. Which is cooler? Spotting a designer driving his own design. Sorry Lady Gaga!

McLaren MP4-12C Spider from London

McLaren MP4-12C Spider, one of the fastest cabrio sports car on planet. Literally, 12C Spider is a hard top version of the 12C Coupe, the main difference is the state-of-art retractable hard top. It can opened or closed speeds to up 30km/h. Despite this mechanical roof of 12C Spider, there is no sacrifice on the performance figures. MP4-12C Spider still manages to reach 100 km/h in 3.1 seconds but the top speed is only 329 km/h, just 4 km/h lower than the coupe.

Actually, you will never ever feel the difference between the coupe and the spider. Usually, Spider versions have a very tendency to be less rigid and slower but this did not happen with McLaren MP-12C Spider. I really don’t know how they made it, but they made it.

My personal opinion, buy the MP4-12C Spider instead of the coupe. You can open the roof when you need and it does not look different when the roof is in closed position!

Here are the photos of the MP4-12C Spider from a sunny London day.

MP4-12C Spider is powered by a 3.8-lt twin turbo V8 engine with 626 HP coupled with a 7-speed double clutch automatic.

McLaren MP4-12C Spider is finally revealed. McLaren’s state of art sport car MP4-12C started the life as a coupe and recently a folding roof Spider version is released. In my opinion, the folding roof is a very cleaver idea and does not deform the harmony of the design of the MP4-12C.

Folding roof only adds 40 kg extra to weight, closes in less than 17 seconds and you operate it speeds up to 30 kph (19 mph). And price starts from £195,000

So, well done Frank :)
