In March of 2017, McLaren announced the 720S supercar, which the company claimed was the "dawn of a new era" for the brand. And on Saturday McLaren chopped the top off the luxurious vehicle to create the convertible derivative: the 720S Spider.
The McLaren 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine generates a scintillating 720PS and 770Nm. The ultra-lightweight Monocage II-S sets the stage for best-in-class acceleration – unlocking 0-200km/h (0-124mph) in just 7.9 seconds.#SomeSeeMore #720SSpider pic.twitter.com/VesV5iPJDP— McLaren Automotive (@McLarenAuto) December 9, 2018
This model joins the 720S in what the company calls the Super Series, a designation that represents "unparalleled" dynamic performance and sophistication. The carbon fiber core, body structure, and roof system ensure that the supercar is both light -- just 108lbs heavier than its roofed counterpart and 194lbs less than the Ferrari 488 Spider -- and agile.
Like the 488 Spider, the supercar is powered by a turbocharged V8 engine, but it outruns the Ferrari with a maximum speed of 212mph with the roof raised and can reach 124mph 0.8 seconds faster than the 488.
The 720S Spider is the second model launched under the McLaren Automotive Track25 business plan after its coupe counterpart. The price tag weighs in at $315,000 while the 720S started at $284,745. With its closest competitor having an MSRP around $280,000, that extra $25,000 gets you where you're going just a little bit faster.
