The McLaren 570S Spider is the convertible variant of the McLaren 570S Coupe.
The convertible version of the 570S was unveiled at the 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed event. It borrows the roof folding mechanism from the Super Series line-up. The two-piece aluminium roof folds into a compartment located behind the seats of the car leaving the rear buttress in place. The roof folding mechanism takes 30 seconds to fold and unfold and is operable at speeds below 48 km/h (30 mph). Unlike the 12C Spider and the 650S Spider, the 570S spider required no significant reengineering for the folding roof mechanism because of the carbon monocell used in the 570S. As a result, the 570S Spider is only 46 kg (101 lb) heavier than the coupe. The drivetrain of the Spider remains identical to that of the coupe which results in similar performance to the coupé counterpart with the roof up. The Spider has new forged aluminium wheels and three special launch colours namely Vega Blue, Sicilian Yellow and Ventura Orange. Deliveries of the Spider began in late 2017.
The McLaren 570S Spider was added in the Slipstream Update as a high (now mid) Class A car with the following rank statistics:
- Stock rank: 2,319 ( 50)
- rank: 2,560
- rank: 2,841 ( 12)
- rank: 3,100 ( 15)
- rank: 3,437 ( 24)
- rank: 3,779 ( 37)
- rank: 4,116 ( 45)
The 570S Spider has a high top speed (only slower than the GT by CITROEN), good handling, mediocre acceleration and decent nitro efficiency.
The 570S Spider's high top speed means that it will excel on top-speed oriented tracks such as the Himalayas or New York. Its main competitors include the Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta, Genty Akylone and Techrules AT96.
