All the performance of the Coupé plus the extra exhilaration of open-air driving. The 570S Spider brings you closer to the elements in a design that’s equally stunning with the roof up or down.
Using the same design cues as its coupe brother, the 570S Spider benefits from a lightweight retractable hardtop which adds a total of just 45kg in comparison to its coupe counterpart. The roof mechanism takes just 15 seconds to operate and panels are stowed out of sight under the beautifully crafted tonneau deck. The roof itself can be operated at speeds of up to 25mph.
Carbon Fibre Construction
One of the many McLaren technologies the Sports Series shares with its Formula 1™ cousins is its carbon fibre construction. The immense rigidity and strength means that – unlike most other convertibles – the 570S Spider requires no additional stiffening of the chassis and loses none of the torsional rigidity associated with the Sports Series models, and so maintains the extreme performance, dynamic excellence and impressive refinement expected of a McLaren.
The dihedral doors are an iconic design feature on every McLaren. As well as making it easier to get in and out, these intricate doors guide air into the side intakes to feed the radiators.
The 570S Spider is equally at home in the city as it is on a twisting mountain pass or your favourite racetrack. The Active Dynamics Panel lets you select the optimum setting for any road condition. Choose Normal, Sport or Track and the car responds accordingly – from a (relatively) sedate drive in town to an adrenalin-fuelled lap.
3.8-Litre McLaren V8 Engine
The all-aluminium twin-turbocharged V8 engine is mounted extremely low in the chassis behind the driver for enhanced agility, and delivers a class-leading 562 bhp.
The seven-speed seamless-shift gearbox can be used in Auto mode for maximum convenience, or controlled via steering-wheel-mounted rocker-shift paddles for manual gear selection. to add further interaction to the drive.
Carbon Ceramic Brakes
The 570S Spider stops as impressively as it accelerates. Carbon ceramic brakes fitted with 6-piston calipers at the front and four-pistons at the rear need only 32 metres to take the Spider from 62mph to standstill.
An unintended benefit of the 570S Spider is that more people can appreciate the elegant interior when the roof is down. It features the finest hand-stitched leather, satin-chrome highlights and a ‘floating’ centre console. The result is an environment where you feel fully engaged to exploit the Spider’s inspiring performance, while being equally at ease to enjoy the exceptional comfort on longer journeys.
Everything For A Reason
As eye-catching as it is, the interior follows McLaren’s design philosophy of ‘Everything For A Reason’. Controls are positioned for maximum ease of use and minimum distraction. This exquisite and uncluttered interior is designed for pure driving engagement.
Optional Audio Upgrade
The Bowers & Wilkins 12-speaker surround system offers enhanced sound beyond the standard 4-speaker 240W audio system. Driven by a 14-channel 1280W amplifier it delivers crystal clear music through two carbon fibre Rohacell sub-bass woofers, five Kevlar mid-range drive units, and five aluminium Nautilus tweeters.
Advanced Touchscreen Display
A seven-inch touchscreen accesses the intuitive McLaren IRIS infotainment system. Tap and swipe to control your settings, from satellite navigation to climate control, from voice activation to optional rear-view camera.
