|The McLaren 570S Spider is the third body type in McLaren’s Sport series lineup, which includes the 570S Coupe and the 570GT. The 570S Spider made its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, held in the UK June 29th–July 2nd.|
The 570S Spider is motivated by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 punting out 562bhp and 443lb ft.
|The first 400 units of the 570S Spider will be “launch edition models” and will be priced at an 'attainable' $208,000. That’s almost $200,000 less than the 675LT Spider and $120,000 less than the 650S Spider.|
The convertible comes in three colors: “Sicilian Yellow”, “Vega Blue” and "Curaçao Blue."
|A carbon fibre MonoCell II chassis is at the heart of all Sports Series cars. The roof can be opened or closed in 15 seconds, at vehicle speeds up to 40km/h (25mph).|
|The combination of lightweight carbon fibre construction and potent 3.8-litre, twin-turbocharged V8, means that the 570S Spider is more powerful and lighter than comparable convertibles, with a power-to-weight ratio of 419PS-per-tonne. McLaren's M838TE engine is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.|
Electro-hydraulically assisted power steering, carbon-ceramic brakes and Pirelli P ZERO™ CORSA tires are standard.
0-62mph is 3.2 seconds, 0-124mph in 9.6 and a quarter in 11.0 flat. Maximum speed is 204mph roof up, you’ll have to do with a paltry 196mph if you want to keep the roof open.
