McLaren 570S Spider
Base MSRP: $208,800
The McLaren 570S Spider is newest model of the McLaren Sports Series, joining the 570S and 570GT. With a retractable hardtop, the 570S Spider is currently the only convertible available from the British carmaker. At the heart of the 570S is its 3.8-liter twin-turbo McLaren-built V8 engine. Residing behind the passenger compartment, this small V8 generates 562 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque. Weighing in at 3,300 pounds, the 570S Spider has enough power to leap to 60 mph in a hair over 3 seconds, and blast to a top speed exceeding 200 mph. According to McLaren, the 570S Spider will “only” hit 196 mph with the top down. The luxurious interior has surfaces covered in either leather, Alcantara or carbon fiber. While most would prefer the sound of that V8 exhaust, the 12-speaker 1280-watt Bowers & Wilkins audio system is more than enough for the small cabin.
