Say hello to the McLaren 720S Spider. This small and fast supercar is already drawing a lot of attention and could become one of the hottest cars in 2019. With a 10.4 second quarter mile, the 720s Spider lives up to McLaren’s lofty standards while also offering some interesting new tech.
When purchasing a hypercar, one of the biggest questions you may find yourself facing is whether to pick up the drop-top or hard-top version. Cruising with the top down and wind in your hair is great, but many enthusiasts don’t want to deal with the extra weight, decreased structural integrity, or subpar aerodynamics. Instead, they opt for the more traditional coupe.
Fortunately, you know longer have to chose between the open air and coupe performance. The 720S Spider is nearly as light as the 720 coupe and features essentially identical structural integrity. This means you can enjoy the best of both worlds. With the top up, the 720s Spider also maintains the coupe’s excellent aerodynamics.
All of this adds up to a fast and beautiful car. The McLaren 720S can hit 60 miles per hour in just 2.8 seconds. Add in that 10 second quarter mile, and you’ve got a British car that can keep up with the best that Germany and Italy have to offer.
Outside of great looks and performance, the 720S Spider is also well regarded for its excellent cockpit, great handling, and top-notch braking. It will retail for 237,000 pounds on up.
