The eagerly-awaited 570S Spider fuses beauty and power with the same exhilarating performance as the Coupé, but with the excitement you only get from open-air driving.
For more information about this exciting new addition to the Sports Series range, contact Lancaster McLaren in Ascot or London.
Powering the 570S Spider is a 7-speed seamless-shift gearbox, mated to McLaren’s potent 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 (which debuted in the Coupé). This unit produces 570 PS (562 bhp), accelerating the car from 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds up to a top speed of 204 mph (196 mph with the roof down).
The 570S Spider’s flowing lines effortlessly contain the fully retractable folding hardtop roof, which can be opened or closed in just 15 seconds at speeds of up to 25 mph.
Inside you can appreciate the hand-stitched leather, satin-chrome highlights and floating centre console with LCD touchscreen display. But perhaps most distinctive is the dihedral doors, exclusive to McLaren. As well as easing entry into the car, this design helps guide air into the side intakes to cool the radiators.
The infotainment system features
a 7-inch touchscreen interface to control the satellite navigation, climate
control or optional rear-view camera. For an enhanced sound option, McLaren
collaborated with Bowers & Wilkins to create a powerful 12-speaker surround
system driven by a 14-channel 1280W amplifier.
The 570S Spider shares its lightweight carbon fibre MonoCell II chassis with the GT and Coupé. This means it’s not just fast, but also strong and safe on the road. And, for extra safety, the Spider features two protective buttresses that stay in position whether the roof is up or down.
For serious grip and stopping power, the 570S Spider is fitted with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres and carbon ceramic brakes with 6-piston callipers at the front and four pistons at the rear. The result is that the 570S Spider can brake from 62 mph to a standstill in just 32 metres.
