McLaren 570S Spyder Revealed Ahead Of Goodwood Debut

Written By:

British supercar marque Mclaren has revealed the 570S Spyder, the latest addition to the Sports Series, the firm's "entry-level" lineup of supercars.

The new McLaren 570S Spyder will debut at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed at the end of the month and is the third car from McLaren to bear the 570 moniker after the 570S and the 570GT.

Powering the 570S Spyder is a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 that produces 562bhp and 600Nm of torque which is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox.  The 570S Spyder sprints to 100km/h from standstill in just 3.2 seconds and continues accelerating till it hits 315km/h with the top down. With the metal roof on, the 570S Spyder can go even faster, topping out at 328km/h.

The roof of 570S Spyder is a two-piece unit made from composite materials and uses the same mechanism used by the drop-top versions of the 650S and 675LT. The roof opens and closes in 15 seconds and can be operated at speeds of up to 40km/h.

Apart from the retractable roof, the major design change comes in the form of the two buttresses that support the retractable wind deflector. Other changes include a new rear spoiler that sits 12mm higher than the coupé's, all-new 10-spoke forged alloy wheels (19-inch front, 2-inch rear).

McLaren has added three new colours for the new 570S Spyder - Curacao Blur, Vega Blue and Sicilian Yellow - which bring the total number of available colour options to 20. Owners can also opt for a dark grey contrast finish on the roof, A-pillars and buttresses.

The 570S Spider is on sale now in the United Kingdom, priced from £164,750 (Rs 1.35 crores) - a £19,445 (Rs 16.01 lakhs) premium over the coupé.
