720S Spider

Introduction

We refuse to accept what’s gone before

The 720S Spider is a perfect example of this. It’s a car that delivers the best of both worlds… a convertible supercar that’s every bit as thrilling as the Coupe. That means the same nerve-tingling rush, now available with the roof down.

This is a car for those who see more… who look beyond convention and seek out the extraordinary. The 720S Spider is a full-throttle supercar with a retractable roof – all in one beautifully honed package.

From $315,00 MSRP*

A NATURAL. FROM EVERY ANGLE.

A word from McLaren
“The 720S Spider has an incredible duality – the thrilling performance and exceptional driver engagement is fused with an indulgent cabin, impeccable refinement and daily usability of a convertible cruiser."

BEAUTY FROM SIMPLICITY

Power. Poise. The fiercest predators exhibit the ultimate elegance. Refined over generations to achieve maximum impact. Every last millimetre of the McLaren 720S Spider is the same. From the aerodynamically honed body. To the modern comforts within. It begins with the shrink-wrapped exterior. Sculpted in the profile of nature’s fastest shape – the teardrop. And extends to the striking cockpit itself. Where the minimalist, yet luxurious, design emphasises form and finish. But this beauty is far from skin deep. The 720S Spider is the first and only convertible to have a complete carbon-fibre shell: the Monocage II-S. And the Retractable Hard Top (RHT) is nothing short of an engineering masterclass. Together, they set the stage for incredible performance. And all-consuming engagement.

Design

Design

An organic form. Cutting through the air seamlessly. Paired with advanced vision. Hallmarks of apex evolutionary success... A key part of the central philosophy behind the 720S Spider was to create the maximum possible visibility. Ultra-slim A-pillars. Compact, glazed buttresses. A stunning electrochromic roof option. And, of course, the folding roof. All combine to offer unprecedented 360° visibility.

REFINED AGGRESSION

Airflow. In supercars, performance hinges on how well you can master it. Behind the clean surfaces and curved lines of the 720S Spider lies an aerodynamic exhibition. Guiding air to optimise downforce. Reduce drag. Enhance cooling. From the inlets in the headlights. To the ducts in each door. And the buttresses at the rear. Inspired by the great white shark’s gills, many of these features appear hidden – adding critical function without ever interrupting the car’s elegant form.

 

Yet there’s still plenty to see. The iconic dihedral doors bring unique McLaren theatre. The integrated active rear spoiler adds aggressive poise. While playing a vital role in braking and aero performance – automatically deploying or seamlessly concealing itself as and when needed.

 

And then there’s the Retractable Hard Top. Fully electric. Near silent. And operated with the touch of a button. Ready to invite the intoxicating elements of the world around you along for the ride. At a moment’s notice.

A word from McLaren
“The story of the 720S begins the moment air hits the car. Everything is designed to guide air around the car as efficiently as possible. And to deliver maximum driver engagement.”

INSIDE. OUT.

Meticulous detailing. Impeccable quality. Exceptional levels of refinement. The interior of the 720S Spider is an elegant but technically focused space. It epitomises cutting-edge luxury. Defined by the car’s incredible breadth of ability. Designed so you can enjoy driving the 720S Spider every day. And everywhere.

 

That means everything you need for a hot lap on track is here… Quick, fingertip access to the Active Dynamics Panel. Minimal, driver-focused dashboard and displays. But also a laid-back cruise on road… High quality sound and infotainment systems. Bags of space for luggage. Comfort and convenience.

 

As you step inside the cockpit, the overwhelming sense is one of space. And light. The slim pillars and glazed buttresses combine for an all-round cockpit view that’s unprecedented in a convertible supercar. With the stunning electrochromic option, you gain full control over your roof’s glazing transparency level. So you can enjoy the bright and open sensation of driving a Spider, all year round.

DEFINED BY YOU

Tactile materials. Stunning finishes. And a host of options to enhance your drive. Inside and out. Perfect your McLaren 720S Spider.

Engagement

ADAPTABLE. INCREDIBLE.

The touch of the materials in the cockpit. The sense of the road at your fingertips. The sound of the fierce powertrain all around you. Every moment in the 720S Spider. Every last touchpoint. They have each been designed around one thing alone: the feel of the drive. Driving engagement is at the heart of the 720S Spider. It begins with the very interface between driver and car itself – the steering. Others may embrace all-electric steering systems, but we choose to stick with hydraulic. Because there’s simply still nothing better. For feeling. For feedback. For driver experience.

Then layer it up… with driving dynamics to take the breath away. Three Active Dynamics driving modes, each tuned to take on every road in the same exemplary fashion. From twisting tracks. To long open highways. Conquer it all at the turn of a dial. But nothing – nothing – makes the drive come alive like dropping the roof. Bringing you, the world rushing by, and the roaring, beating heart of the 720S Spider together. In pure symbiosis.

THE CALL OF THE WILD

Roof up. Or down. Driving the 720S Spider is a visceral experience. The McLaren 4.0 Litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine connects driver to car like nothing else. Whether cruising down the high street. Or bolting along at 6,000rpm.

SHAPE. SHIFTER.

Class-leading performance can never take second stage. But in the 720S Spider, a whole other world awaits you too... The one-piece Retractable Hard Top (RHT) is built on our pioneering carbon fibre expertise. It adds just 49kg compared to the Coupe, so there’s no sacrifice in performance. Its eight near-silent motors open or stow the roof in just 11 seconds. At speeds up to 50km/h. A seamless transition. To an unparalleled sense of openness to the elements. And a cockpit filled with the fierce roar of the powertrain.

Power

SURVIVAL OF THE FASTEST

Raw power. It’s the foundation of dominion in nature. And the McLaren 720S Spider packs a prodigious punch. Always ready to attack, at a moment’s notice. The 4.0 litre V8 engine with twin scroll turbochargers takes it from a standing start to 60mph in just 2.8 seconds. The accompanying engine soundtrack is a guttural symphony of soaring aggression.

POWER

POWER

Expectation-defying ride comfort and usability. Consummate handling prowess and refinement. Yet, lurking beneath it all, a barely restrained force… game-changing power and acceleration. The 720S Spider is an out-and-out supercar. Uncompromised by its convertible format. Only enhanced through the added exhilaration.

THE BEAST WITHIN

720PS power. 770Nm of torque. 0-60mph in just 2.8 seconds. 124mph in only 7.8 seconds... And a thunderous exhaust note that numbers simply can’t describe. This is the stunning output of the M840T McLaren engine that gives life to the 720S Spider. Figures, and a feeling, that take the breath away.

 

Game-changing performance requires blank-page thinking. Every last engine component has been analysed and refined to maximise power. Increase efficiency. A new intake manifold. A lighter connecting rod design. A stiffer and lighter crankshaft. A lighter piston design with tapered pins. Attention to detail that all adds up to instant power. Lightning-fast responsiveness. A touch of the pedal tells you all you need to know.

 

The engine is also positioned as low as possible between the front and rear axles. This further boosts the car’s handling. While Advanced Port Fuel injection from the McLaren P1™ increases smoothness.

THE JOY OF THE DRIVE

The skeleton of the 720S Spider is the incredibly light, super stiff carbon fibre Monocage II-S chassis. It’s the first and only convertible to have a complete carbon-fibre shell. The foundation of the car’s incredible visibility. And performance.

 

With Proactive Chassis Control II, this brawn meets brains. At the heart of our advanced suspension system is a complex algorithm that constantly monitors vehicle dynamics as you drive. Optimising wheel acceleration. Damper pressure. At every moment. Enabling the ultimate balance of body control and ride comfort. 

 

Ignition Cut boosts gear shift times. Variable Drift Control puts the freedom – and the fun – of oversteer at your fingertips. While the Active Dynamics Panel introduces powerful control over the nature of your drive… with Comfort, Sport and Track driving modes transforming the car’s character. Steering. Gearshifts. Throttle response. Handling. All recalibrated at the turn of a dial. Track sharpness. Or laid-back leisure. The choice is yours.
