In the spirit of Valentine’s day, McLaren has came up with a one-of-a-kind 570S Spider, especially for this special occasion. This unique McLaren 570S Spider is hand-assembled in Woking, England, featuring carbon fiber construction, a mid-mounted V8 engine and top-notch performance in a convertible.
The color is evidently Red (Vermillion Red) for the 570S Spider, taken from McLaren’s Elite color palette. A By McLaren Designer Sport interior in red and black leather further specifies red enhancements to add true romance to this supercar edition.
True Romance on the inside of the McLaren 570S Spider
MSO Defined Extended Sill Finishers in the same material and featuring McLaren branding further individualize the interior, with Indian Red seatbelts, also by McLaren Special Operations (MSO), and a steering wheel with Apex Red leather trim completing the St Valentine’s Day look inside the car. Outside, red brake calipers and personalized ‘Color Edition’ Pirelli P-Zero tyres.
The sophisticated cabin blends exceptional levels of craftsmanship, quality and technology, hand-stitched leathers sitting side-by-side with a 10-inch TFT main instrument cluster and centrally-mounted, 7-inch IRIS touchscreen through which climate control and infotainment are managed.
Valentine’s day occasion is more meant meaningful with the 570S Spider
Aluminium bodywork shrink-wrapped around a powerful mechanical package gives the 570S Spider an athletic appearance, with instantly recognisable McLaren styling cues such as a teardrop-shaped cabin; unique-in-class dihedral doors; and distinctive LED lighting front and rear, the Daylight Running Lights recreating the signature McLaren Speedmark badge.
The two-piece retractable hardtop is constructed of lightweight composite panels that are significantly more weather- and fade-resistant than fabric; the roof of this bespoke car is in optional Dark Palladium grey rather than body color. Stowed beneath a beautifully crafted carbon fibre tonneau cover, another feature on this car from the MSO Defined range, the convertible roof is electrically operated from the driver’s seat using one simple control and can be opened or closed in just 15 seconds, at vehicle speeds of up to 40km/h.
When the 570S Spider’s retractable roof is closed, its lines mirror those of the 570S Coupé, giving a flowing, uncluttered appearance. With the roof open the silhouette is equally dramatic, additional attention being drawn to the two distinctive buttresses that taper into the bodywork either side of the engine.
The one-off Saint Valentine’s Day 570S Spider features numerous exterior carbon fiber body enhancements from the MSO Defined range of options, including door inserts; front splitter; rear deck; rear bumper and rear spoiler.
McLaren 570S Spider: An arrow in the heart
A 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged McLaren V8 engine gives the 570S Spider acceleration from standstill to 100km/h in 3.2 seconds. Top speed is 328km/h with the roof closed and even with the roof lowered, the new Spider can reach 315km/h.
The McLaren 570S Spider employs racecar-style, double-wishbone suspension all-round, with the same suspension and steering settings as 570S Coupé models to ensure exceptional body control and a particularly pure and rewarding drive. The 570S Spider is also extremely comfortable, as befits a sophisticated, luxurious convertible; a driver can choose from Normal, Sport or Track chassis modes for progressively softer or firmer suspension that best suits prevailing conditions.
