A sweet breeze: 2018 McLaren 570S Spider First Drive
If you ever had a chance to test-drive theMcLaren 570S Spider, you would definitely agree that it is madness. Not the car itself, which is a cogent convertible design based on the already handsome coupe. What is crazy is that a 562-hp machine that hammers to 62 mph in just 3.2 seconds is only considered a sort-of, kind-of supercar. The Spider will beMcLaren‘s volume model in its lowest-priced, lowest-tier Sports Series designation. As such, it is the company’s starter supercar.
Should you have $208,800 in your Venmo account, you won’t give up anything except that fixed roof. There’s no perceivable performance demerit when it comes to this retractable hardtop, as it was developed alongside the regular 570S from the onset. The 0-to-60 time is a non-discernable one-tenth of a second slower, and it still gets to a 204-mph top speed when the roof is up. If you insist on a top-velocity hurtle with wind bathing the cabin, it would only limit you by 8 mph. So, yes, madness.
