Previously only available in the Super Series, the McLaren range now includes the Sports Series! And with all the same McLaren insistence on performance, it has an almost negligible performance gap compared to the Coupe!
– The McLaren 570S Coupe continues to deliver the performance and perfect lines of the Mclaren 570S 2022 with the spacious driving experience of a convertible.
– The third model in the McLaren Sports Series family, after the Coupe and GT.
– The hardtop convertible technology is inherited from the McLaren 650S and 675LT Spider, but with only a slight increase of 46 kg, it maintains the strong structural performance of the car.
– The convertible top can be opened and closed in just 15 seconds at speeds of up to 40km/h and features an electric glass windscreen.
– The carbon fibre monocoque, mid-engine set-up and the famous McLaren butterfly-wing doors give the car a unique character.
– With a 0-100km/h acceleration time of 3.2 seconds, a top speed of 328km/h and a fixed rear wing that lifts the car by 12mm, the performance is on a par with that of a coupe.
There is no sports car more suitable for development as a convertible than a mid-engine configuration! No matter how heavily weighted the Coupe is, once the Spider’s top opens, the feeling of being firmly planted on the ground will definitely make you feel that you made the right choice in the first place.
Black Swan perfect storm
The McLaren 570S is an ultra-lightweight car that offers performance and handling that exceeds that of any other sports car in its class. The second generation of McLaren’s advanced carbon fibre monocoque not only offers unparalleled lightness and agility in its class, but also applies careful ergonomics to the cabin configuration, giving the car a more elegant British character with better power output and balanced chassis performance.
The McLaren 570S has the highest power-to-weight ratio in its class at 434 PS per tonne, resulting in 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and 0 to 200 km/h in 9.5 seconds, but it is not just this that makes the 570S a sports car.
Lightweight design, again with only minor differences from the Coupe
The two-piece hard top is made from the same lightweight composite material as the 650S Spider and 675LT Spider, so that the centre of gravity does not feel noticeably higher even when the top is closed. This helped the engineers to design the convertible without having to worry about the potential for additional reinforcement of the steel or aluminium structure. So the 570S Spider does not have to compromise too much for rigidity, so the total weight is only slightly more than the Coupe at 46kg, rather than the more than 200kg that a pure metal convertible would weigh.
