The immensely capable McLaren 720S now has a folding hard-top Spider variant, for those who enjoy their supercars with the wind in their hair. Like the McLaren 650S Spider before it, the 720S Spider opts for a folding hard-top roof over a soft-top option. This roof folds down to store under a tonneau that sits above the V8 engine in the back. Either side are two buttresses, each with a carbon fiber constructed roll bar section, and a glass element which helps maintain the coupe-like silhouette.
McLaren have managed to keep the extra weight down to just 49 kilograms over the coupe, tipping the scales at 2,936,lbs (1,332 kg). The claimed 0-62 mph acceleration time stays the same as the 720S at 2.9 seconds, with 0-124 mph down in just 7.9 seconds. Top speed of the Spider has been lowered by 10 mph to 202 mph (325 kph).
The arrival of the McLaren 720S Spider sees the introduction of two new exterior colours Belize Blue and Aztec Gold, along with a new ten-spoke wheel design wrapped with Pirelli P ZERO tyres. The Spider will be offered in three different trim levels with standard, performance and luxury to choose from.
