Doesn't the standard MP4-12C have a 592hp motor? Has the engine been tuned to provide even more power on the convertible?

This is a recent development, McLaren has sent personal invites to all MP4 owners to have their car's power upped to 625hp, free of cost. They just need to take the cars to their nearest dealer.

The Spider, comes standard with the 625hp tune.

Here is one such invite,

I assume you mean the Park Lane showroom which was opposite Hyde Park and had a Silver F1. That closed a few years ago. The new showroom is in Knightsbridge. Exact address is 100 Knightsbridge. Hope this helps!

Oh-so-beautiful is what I exclaimed when I first came across the pictures of the MP4-12C. Loved the Coupe, the convertible looks great as well ! I would say Mclaren have done a neat job with the trunk lid, probably a bit better than Pininfarina (Ferrari 458 spider) .
