McLaren 570S Spider unveiled

This year's Goodwood Festival of Speed will see the new McLaren 570S Spider make its public debut.

Compared to the existing Coupé version, the most obvious difference is a retractable two-piece hardtop roof. This can be raised or lowered in fifteen seconds at speeds of up to 25 mph (40 km/h). McLaren says the weight penalty is 46 kg (101 lbs), but body rigidity isn't affected.

Less noticeable changes include a slightly raised rear spoiler, plus the rear window (which also acts as a wind deflector to reduce in-cabin buffeting) can be electrically lowered.

Like the 570S Coupé, the Spider is powered by a 3.8 litre twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 562 bhp (419 kW / 570 PS) with 600 Nm (443 lb/ft) of peak torque. Delivered via a seven-speed sequential transmission, the result is a 0-62 mph (100 km/h) time of 3.2 seconds and a 204 mph (328 km/h) roof-up top speed.
