McLaren 720S Spider — 2019
In 2017 McLaren introduced the all-new 720S at the Geneva Motor Show. Two years later the 720S was again on display at the show, but without a top. The 720S Spider combines ultimate performance with open-air motoring. The retractable carbon fiber roof raises or lowers in 11 seconds. The entire top mechanism adds 108 pounds, conforming to McLaren’s dedication to lightweight performance vehicles. The 720S Spider’s 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 engine produces 710 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque. Performance figures are on a par with the coupe — the sprint to 60 mph takes 2.8 seconds and 124 mph comes up in a hair under 8 seconds. Top speed is 212 mph; however, with the top open the driver has to settle for a mere 202 mph.
