McLaren is expanding its Super Series product family with the introduction of a second new model under the £1.2bn: the new McLaren 720S Spider.
The new 720S Spider is made for day-to-day usability unseen in the convertible supercar class. Is now available to order for less than $300.000. Deliveries start in March 2019.
“The new Spider delivers across a remarkable spectrum of abilities to outstandingly high levels, and as lightest in class with an increase of just 49kg over the 720S Coupé, moves us even further ahead of our competition in the weight race.” Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive Officer, McLaren Automotive.
720S Spider replaces the 650S Spider.
The 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged McLaren V8 engine powers the McLaren 720S Spider.
The new 720S Spider has a carbon fibre structure at its core. Is just 49kg (less than 4%) heavier than the 720S Coupe. With a lightest dry weight of 1,332kg the 720S Spider is comfortably the lightest car in its competitive set.
The driving characteristics of the car dramatically change when you switch driving modes: Comfort, Sport and Track.
Centrally-mounted 8.0-inch high-resolution Central Infotainment Screen remains the primary hub for the vehicle’s functions. The design and the use of glass delivers a 12% improvement in over-the-shoulder visibility.
A new 10-spoke, Lightweight forged alloy wheel design has been developed for the new Spider. Tyres are Pirelli P ZERO™, designed in conjunction with McLaren Technology Partner, Pirelli, to provide the optimum balance of performance, grip, handling and comfort over a wide range of road conditions.

Pictures Mclaren 720s Spider
The McLaren 720S is a British sports car designed and manufactured by McLaren Automotive. It is the second all-new car in the McLaren Super Series, replacing the 650S beginning in May 2017.
Deliveries start in March 2019.
The 720S was launched at the Geneva Motor Show on 7 March 2017 and is built on a modified carbon monocoque, which is lighter and stiffer in contrast to the 650S.
The 720S features McLaren’s new M840T engine. McLaren claims class-leading efficiency for the new 720S, with CO2 emissions of 249 g/km and combined fuel economy of 26.4 mpg, both of these figures represent an improvement of around 10% from the 650S.
McLaren 720S GT3
Unveiled at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the 720S GT3 marks the beginning of McLaren’s outreach to both amateur and professional racing drivers.
McLaren 720S Spider
The 720S Spider was introduced in December 2018 as the brand’s new open top flagship sports car. Due to the integral roll structure of the monocoque used in the 720S, the Spider did not need additional bracing to compensate for the loss of a fixed roof. The modified monocoque loses the spine running from front to the rear of the car and is dubbed the Monocage II-S. Due to the loss of the roof, the 720S Spider uses traditional dihedral doors. The Spider weighs 45 kg (100 lb) more than its coupé counter-part due to the retractable hardtop system. The Spider marks the debut of new 10-spoke alloy wheels and new exterior colour options.
The roof is a single piece of carbon fibre and takes 11 seconds for operation, 6 seconds quicker than the 650S Spider. The roof can be operated at speeds up to 50 km/h (31 mph). The Spider uses the “flying buttress” as used on all convertible McLaren models. There is an added window on the buttress of the car to increase rear visibility. The retractable window between the roll-over hoops is carried over from the 650S Spider.
