McLaren is celebrating the U.S. launch of the 12C Spider by releasing a new video that features Rhys Millen and snowboarder Chanelle Sladics.

Filmed at Loveland Pass, the clip shows the duo "racing" down a mountain which is 11,990 feet (3,655 m) above sea level. While there isn't much racing involved, the video provides plenty of glamour shots of the 12C Spider.

As we have previously reported, the convertible has a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine that develops 625 HP (460 kW). It is connected to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission which enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.1 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 329 km/h (204 mph). In terms of efficiency, owners can expect to average 11.7 L/100km (24.2 mpg UK / 20.1 mpg US) with CO2 emissions of 279 g/km.

The video is produced and directed by J.F. Musial from YouTube's DRIVE channel.
