Let The Light In
The 720S Spider is built on a carbon fibre structure thats incredibly light. And incredibly strong. This means we didnt need to add any additional strengthening to accommodate the Retractable Hard Top (RHT). So theres barely any additional weight compared to the 720S Coupe. This creates a drive thats every bit as thrillingly uncompromising. The RHT retracts at the press of a button and fully folds in under 11 seconds. Its near enough silent. And so well designed you can operate it while travelling at 50km/h. Plus, a unique glazed option with electrochromic glass means you can still see the sky in all its glory even with the roof up.
One of the key things that makes the 720S Spider so easy to drive on road or track is the level of visibility it offers you. In fact, part of the central philosophy behind the car was to create the maximum possible visibility. The advanced carbon fibre composite structure enables ultra-slim A-pillars and compact buttresses. The buttresses themselves arent simply a distinctive feature. They also serve a purpose. Topped with glazed floating elements, they direct air over the tonneau, improving powertrain cooling and increasing downforce. For an all-round cockpit view thats never before been seen in a convertible supercar.
The Ins and Out
No McLaren is complete without our iconic dihedral doors. And although they may look impressive, they stay true to McLarens purposeful design philosophy making it easier for driver and passenger alike to get in and out of the car. They even have a smaller opening footprint, so they can be fully opened in tighter parking spaces. For the 720S Spider, they feature an enhanced soft-close feature. So they always return to their closed position with elegance. And with such a snug seal to the body of the car, noise and vibration is hugely reduced even at high speeds.
