McLaren MP4-12C Spider in Geneva

Posted by WatchAnish on

As much as we love watches sometimes we get a bit crazy about cars too… This was one of those cases – a friend of ours in Geneva (who we will keep hidden from your eyes for now) just got his new McLaren MP4-12C shipped to him recently! And that’s not your average one – it’s a Spider (and the first Spider I ever saw live by the way).

Of course we went out, and took it for a spin.. and then did some cool photos with our automotive photographer @Markovsky. Honestly loving the simplicity of the interior, the details of the exterior and I think the car is a bit undervalued, as people with enough money to afford it tend to buy more Ferraris and Lambos these days.

It’s not going to be a long post, but just to tell you a bit about the car – the original MP4-12C was introduced in 2011 and became a great success for the brand. Designed by Frank Stephenson (responsible for the Ferrari F430!) it has a very cool minimalistic look to it. A lot of carbon fibre used in this McLaren to reduce weight (i suppose) and the interior is actually pretty comfortable and not tiring (which is kind of rare for a sports vehicle).

Speaking of it being a sports vehicle – its top speed is 328 km/h, and it only takes 3.1 seconds to get to 100 km/h!

Of course we could not shoot the car empty-wristed so we took a couple of awesome watches with us – the first one is one of our favourites from Arnold & Son – the TB88, and the second one is the absolute favourite of mine DeBethune DB28 tourbillon insert heart emoji here
