McLaren Proves Supercars Can Have Open Differentials

From The McLaren 570S Press Kit:
- All the high-performance dynamic attributes and refinement of 570S Coupé with the added exhilaration of open-air driving
- Third bodystyle in McLaren’s Sports Series product family, alongside Coupé and GT
- Retractable hardtop using technology proven in McLaren 650S and 675LT Spiders
- Just 46kg weight premium over 570S Coupé and structural rigidity unchanged
- Roof takes just 15 seconds to open or close, at vehicle speeds of up to 40km/h (25mph)
- Electrically-operated, glazed rear window/wind deflector
- Unique-in-class combination of carbon fibre construction, mid-engined drivetrain layout and McLaren dihedral doors
- Extended rear spoiler is 12mm higher than Coupé’s to compensate for change in body shape
- 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged McLaren V8 engine with seven-speed, seamless-shift gearbox produces a class-leading 570PS and 600Nm
- Acceleration from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in 3.2 seconds and 328km/h (204mph) top speed are identical to 570S Coupé. Top speed with roof down is 315km/h (196mph)
- First 400 Spiders built are launch edition models, following success of 720S launch edition
- Available to order now, priced from £164,750 (UK)

The new McLaren 570S Spider combines the exceptional dynamism and refinement of the 570S Coupé with the extra exhilaration of open-air motoring. Hand-assembled in Woking, England, the 570S Spider is the most attainable McLaren Spider ever and brings supercar attributes such as carbon fiber construction, a mid-engined layout and extreme performance for the first time to the luxury sports convertible segment.

The two-seat, rear-wheel drive 570S Spider is the third bodystyle in McLaren’s Sports Series portfolio, lining up alongside the Coupé and the GT. Compared to the Coupé, the 570S Spider adds a neatly integrated, retractable hardtop that when lowered delivers an even more immersive and exhilarating driving experience. The two-piece roof – which is engineered using technology proven in the McLaren 650S and 675LT Spider models – is constructed of lightweight composite panels and creates a purposeful, sleek appearance whether closed or lowered."
