McLaren has released teasers of what we can safely assume is the convertible version of the McLaren 720S Spider, which is to be unveiled December 8 -- who needs warm weather to ride a drop-top anyway?
From the single image and 13-second video that the company shared Wednesday of what looks to be a convertible derivative of the McLaren 720S Spider, we can see pretty much see the entire exterior and get a taste of the interior. Despite the specs not being announced yet, we're reasonably confident that this car will have impressive power -- it is a supercar, after all.

If the model is anything like its fixed-roof counterpart, the car may be powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine capable of 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque.
From the short press release announcing the debut, we know that this car is the second one to be released under McLaren's Track25 business plan, a project to convert the company's entire lineup to hybrid models by 2025. McLaren is planning on releasing 18 new models to accomplish this; the Speedtail, revealed in late October, was the first, and this will be the second.
The car will be officially unveiled on December 8.
