Powered by a 570 horsepower 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8, the new £ 164,750 McLaren 570S Spider is as fast as its fixed roof sibling
After the success of the new 720S Launch Edition, McLaren will apply the same formula to the 570S Spider and scare off with 400 Launch Edition models. “The McLaren 570S Spider is the most achievable McLaren Spider Adds yet another dimension to the McLaren Sports Series family,” said McLaren CEO Mike Flewitt, adding that its mid-engine layout and “With the 570S Spider, McLaren can now have a third body style next to the coupe and the GT models To their Sports Series portfolio. In contrast to these two, the 570S Spider has an integrated, retractable hardtop that can be lowered or raised in speeds of up to 40 km / h (25 mph) in less than 15 seconds. The hardtop only adds 46 kg (101 lbs) to the weight of the car.
The second-tier roof consists of light composite panels and does not affect the 570S Spider at all. Speaking of this, with 570 hp and 600 Nm (452 lb-ft) of torque is sent to the rear wheels using a seven-speed transmission, the 570S Spider will hit 100 km / h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds before It is high with 328 km / h. Its top speed (with the roof in place) is identical to that of the 570S Coupé. When the roof is lowered, the new spider is at 315 km / h (196 mph), which is still a supercar worthy number.

Wind buffeting is also no problem thanks to the glazed wind deflectors, which can be raised or lowered at the push of a button.
Regarding design, the exterior of the 570S Spider is reinforced by the dark Palladium gray rear spoiler, which is 12 mm (0.47 inch) larger than the rear spoiler found on the 570S Coupé – provides extra Downforce to compensate for the aero changes caused by the new rear torso design. Aesthetically, however, if the dark palladium gray does not fit, customers can opt for a visible carbon fiber finish to add additional cost over MSO.
