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.
The McLaren Sports Series is a family of sports cars built from supercar DNA. Our passion for performance and innovation, honed over five decades of success on the racetrack and on the road, has led us to create a car that is both heart-stoppingly exciting and also very usable.
The new 570S Spider shares the same 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine and lightweight carbon fibre MonoCell II chassis as the GT and Coupé, its retractable hardtop roof adding the exhilaration of open top driving to its supercar performance.
One of the many McLaren technologies the Sports Series shares with its Formula 1™ cousins is its carbon fibre construction. The MonoCell II weighs just 75kg, yet its immense rigidity and strength means that – unlike most other convertibles – the 570S Spider requires no additional stiffening of the chassis.
The twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre McLaren engine delivers a smooth surge of torque over a broad rev range and a class-leading 570PS. Combined with the lightweight construction, this gives the 570S Spider an outstanding power-to-weight ratio.
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 100km/h to standstill.
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.
Behind the cockpit, two protective buttresses remain in position whether the roof is up or down. An extended rear spoiler adds extra downforce at higher speeds, keeping performance and handling at the same high level as the Coupé.
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.
All Sports Series models are equally at home in the city as on a dynamic Alpine roadway. And if the desire takes you, the car is well equipped for the thrill of the track. The Active Dynamics Panel lets you select the optimum setting for any road or track condition. Choose Normal, Sport or Track and the car responds accordingly – from a (relatively) sedate drive in town to an adrenalin-fuelled lap.
Despite the advanced mechanism that makes the roof completely disappear into the car, 52 litres of luggage space is available at the rear when the roof is up. Another 150 litres is available at the front, making the Spider an ideal choice for that long weekend away.

Despite the specification, the 570S Spider impresses far more in the flesh than on paper. It's simply a beautiful thing.
Autocar - 5 stars
As McLaren promises, the 570S Spider feels equally as exciting and refined to drive as the Coupe, but adds the extra dimension of top-down driving.
CAR Magazine - 5 stars
Every bit as good as the McLaren 570S with the roof up, with the roof down the Spider delivers more fun and a greater sense of occasion.

I'd say this might just be the cream of the Sports Series crop; hurry, while stocks last.
