McLaren 570S Spider launched in Europe

New ‘topless’ McLaren hits the market

We got along to the Australian launch of the new McLaren 720S Coupe last week.

While the new McLaren supercar also got a lot of coverage in this week’s Behind the Wheel Podcast.

Now comes the European arrival of the 570S Spider.

The hand-built British car is powered by a 441kW/600Nm 3.8 litre twin-turbocharged McLaren V8 engine.

Featuring a light-weight carbon fibre body, the McLaren is promising buyers a 0-100km/h sprint in just 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 328km/h (315km/h with roof down).

Speaking of that roof, it’s a two-piece unit that can be opened or closed in 15 seconds, at vehicle speeds of up to 40km/h.

Priced in the UK at around $275,000 AUD, Mike Flewitt, CEO of McLaren Automotive, says the new McLaren 570S Spider is an attainable supercar for many buyers.

 “This is a convertible without compromise.

“It’s mid-engined layout and carbon fibre chassis guarantee the same thrilling dynamic performance and exceptional driver involvement enjoyed in a 570S Coupe, but with the added attraction of a retractable hard-top that delivers the extra exhilaration of roof-down motoring.”
