Who doesn’t love super cars? There are many who even have posters of them in their rooms. But certainly, at the back of your mind, you know they are out of your as they are costliest of all and have nice maintenance too. But, things might change now, as McLaren has come up with an attainable supercar, called the 570S Spider and it is beautiful.
This is the third body type in McLaren’s Sport series portfolio, which includes the 570S Coupe and the 570GT. The two-piece retractable roof uses tech originally for the Spider variants of the 650S and 675SLT. So just drop the top and enjoy the fresh air as well as the limelight.
What is better is that you can do so even on the go. It takes 15 seconds for the top to drop at speeds of up to 40 kmph and it closely really quick. Folding the roof into the rear adjusts the 570S’ aerodynamics. McLaren has fitted a rear spoiler which is 12.7 mm taller than the one on the 570S, which increases downforce. The piece comes stock in Dark Palladium gray, but McLaren Special Operations offers an optional version with a visible carbon finish.
The Mclaren 570S Spider shares its performance with the Coupe. There’s a 3.8-litre biturbo, V8 which is good enough for 562bhp and there’s 600Nm of torque on offer. A seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox powers the rear wheels and helps the car go from 0 to 100 kmph in just 3.2 seconds, before topping out at 328 kmph and this is of course with the roof in place. With the top down, it can still reach speeds of up to 315 kmph.
The 570S Spider will be available in 20 colours, including three new additions: Cuarcao Blue, Vega Blue, Sicilian Yellow. The 570S Spider will make its public debut during the Goodwood Festival of Speed on the 29th of June, 2017. As for the price, the 570S Spider costs just ₹ 1.34 crore ($208000) and a close to a crore less than the 675LT and ₹ 77 lakh less than the 650S Spider, so yes reasonable by Mclaren standards.
