2018 McLaren 720S SpiderMclaren Automotive, the British manufacturer of luxury high-end sports cars and super cars is expanding the Super Series lineup with a convertible model! Meet the new 720S Spider! Already revealed and available for order, new family member has a lot to showcase. So, let's waste no more time and see what this bad boy is all about!


The design foundations of the new McLaren Spider incorporate organic forms and elegant lines. In fact, this new guy is heavily influenced by 2017 720S Coupe model – it combines maximum downforce, minimizes drag, enhances drivetrain cooling and optimizes aerodynamic performance. All this is packed within a sexy and bold body that expresses masculinity and aggressiveness.

And as all other McLaren machines, the new guy features numerous carbon-fiber components. Something more, all lightweight materials are further strengthened in order to ensure better body rigidity. Even the foldable roof and the windscreen A-pillars are reinforced in such a way that provide rollover protection for occupants. Neat! Overall, new 720S Spider is just 108lbs – this is less than 4 per cent heavier than the predecessor Coupe model. This slight increase in weight is due to the RHT and tonneau systems.
