New McLaren 720S Spider To Be Revealed On December 8

McLaren has announced the date for the new 720S Spider’s reveal, which will make its world debut online on December 8.

The open-top version of the McLaren 720S will become the brand’s second new model under the company’s Track25 Business plan, following the reveal of the 250mph Speedtail last month. The new 720S Spider will join the 570S Spider in McLaren’s convertible range and is expected to feature a folding hard-top, just like its little brother.

Chopping off the roof will likely come with a slight weight penalty, but expect nearly identical structural rigidity, thanks to McLaren’s carbon MonoCage II chassis. The powertrain will remain the same, meaning a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 with 710hp (720PS) bolted to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

With the fixed-roof 720S already offering hypercar levels of acceleration (0-62mph in 2.9 seconds, top speed 212mph), the new Spider derivative is expected to become one of the most thrilling open-top supercars on the market. After all, having the sky as your roof and a very angry V8 barking behind you sounds like the stuff dreams are made of. Also, if the 720S Spider will be just as formidable as its Coupe counterpart in a straight line, rival convertible supercars can expect to get their rear ends handed to them at the drag strip.

The new McLaren 720S Spider is expected to hit the market next year, so you better start saving if you haven’t already.
