McLaren's Sports Series, which contains its most "affordable" supercars, grows by one today with the introduction of the 2018 McLaren 570S Spider.
The schtick is pretty straightforward: Take a 570S coupe, and remove the top. Well, OK, it's not removed per se -- it's replaced with a retractable hardtop that takes 15 seconds to open or close, at speeds up to 25 miles per hour. The top and its associated mechanisms add about 101 pounds to the 570S' curb weight.
To prevent the wind from removing one's hat, there's an additional wind deflector that can be raised to help mitigate buffeting, or lowered while the top is up to bring a little more noise into the cabin. There's also an optional "sports system" that channels exhaust sound toward the cabin beneath the tonneau cover for even more noise.
