A tactically-shadowed teaser image heralds the arrival of the new McLaren convertible supercar, the 720S Spider.
Following the announcement of its new Speedtail model, McLaren today teased this image, which looks suspiciously like a convertible version of the company’s 720S supercar.
The rather obvious shut line between the car’s roof and windscreen surround suggests that McLaren’s next update for it’s Ferrari 488 GTB rival will be a folding-hardtop option, opening the carbon-clad 720S cockpit to the elements.
Details on the 720S Spider are still uncertain, as McLaren will not be officially revealing the new model until the beginning of next month. We’ve been told to prepare for our first look at the new machine on December 8 at 8.10pm, an unusually specific time that you might want to note on your calendar.
Much like the 570S and 570S Spider, we expect the 720S Spider to bear very similar performance figures to its hard-top equivalent. That means 710bhp and, a 0-60mph time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed of 212mph are on the agenda.
We also expect the McLaren 720S Spider will be more expensive than the standard car with a price gap of around £20,000 taking the total to around the £230,000 mark.
Do you think the new McLaren 720S Spider will be as good as the 570S Spider? Let us know in the comments below…
