Hot off the heels of its Speedtail hypercar, McLaren continues the race with the debut of its 2019 720S Spider. The British automaker’s newest supercar is the sequel to the 720S Coupe with an updated drop-top configuration and spectacular performance specs.

The 720S Spider convertible demonstrates the same acceleration as its coupe version at 0 to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds. The body features a Monocage II-S carbon fiber core with a bespoke carbon fiber exterior structure. The retractable hardtop boasts a one-piece carbon fiber roof panel that’s electrically driven and will raise or lower in 11 seconds. The retractable roof only adds 108 pounds to the original 720S Coupe’s weight, making it a competitive 1,937-pound drop-top.

The supercar is fitted with an M840T 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, packing 710 horsepower and 568 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels, and assisted with 7-speed SSG transmission and electro-hydraulic steering.

See a detailed look at the McLaren 2019 720S Spider above and the car in action below, and head over to McLaren’s website to learn more. Pricing in the US starts off at $315,000 USD with deliveries slated to begin in March 2019.

For more impressive automobiles, Koenigsegg’s Reggera received the naked treatment.
