McLaren has announced a third body style for its entry-level Sports Series range. The convertible 570S Spider joins the existing Coupe and GT models and will make its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Built in Woking, the rear-wheel-drive two-seater has the same retractable hard top as the McLaren 650S and 675LT Spiders. Adding just 46kg, the roof takes 15 seconds to open or close and can do so at speeds of up to 25mph. An electrically operated wind deflector reduces wind buffeting.

The 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged McLaren V8 engine in the 570S Spider is the same one found in its coupé twin. It is paired with the same seven-speed gearbox, producing 570hp and maximum torque of 600Nm. With a 0-62mph acceleration time of 3.2 seconds, the Spider has a top speed of 204mph with the roof closed.

McLaren has introduced three new paint finishes. Curacao Blue, Vega Blue and Sicilian Yellow join the existing palette, giving customers a total of 20 colours to choose from. A 10-spoke alloy wheel design is also available, along with a new black brake calliper colour.

Inside, a seven-inch touchscreen manages climate control and infotainment functionality. Six-way adjustable electric memory seats are as standard, with eight-way adjustability optional.

The McLaren 570S Spider is available to order now with UK pricing starting from £164,750. Customers can expect to take delivery of their vehicles in August.
