McLaren’s Game Changer

McLaren’s Game Changer

If you can afford the additional £20,000 for the McLaren 650S Spyder, then it’s undeniably worth buying. The Spyder model has all the capabilities of the coupe with added ‘va-va-voom’. The convertible roof operates in a matter of seconds, consequently allowing you to hear the roar of the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. The convertible roof does add 40kg to the kerb weight, however this does not compromise the performance as the Spyder is able to maintain the same lap times as the coupe. Indeed, the coupe and the Spyder are both capable of achieving 0-60mph in just 3 seconds flat. The Spyder version uses the same carbonfibre chassis and 7-speed dual automatic gearbox which makes it identical to the coupe to drive. From the rear, you would have difficulty telling the coupe and Spyder apart, however one difference between the two is the surprisingly larger boot space offered by the Spyder. The McLaren 650S Spyder is thought to be one of the sharpest, quickest convertibles on the market. So, if you can afford the extra cost, taking the price to £215,250 then this really is a game changing car to own. If not, it’s unlikely you’ll be disappointed with the coupe either!
