Then, we will step on the engine part. Compared to other convertible series, McLaren combines lightweight carbon fiber and a 3.8-liter V8 engine that produces lighter and stronger cars. Because it is supported by power-to-weight ratio of 419PS.
And the twin-turbocharged McLaren M838TE engine is capable of producing 7.400rpm at 570PS and 600Nm of torque between 5,000rpm and 6,500rpm. And also supported by seven-speed seamless-shift gearbox with Launch Control technology, acceleration from 0-100km/h (62mph) in just 3.2 seconds and 200km/h (124mph) within 9.6 seconds.
The McLaren 570S Spider is able to reach at 315km/h (196mph). The start-stop system affects the overall efficiency aspect. Resulting in fuel economy 10.7liter/100km, equivalent to 26.6mpg in the NEDC combined cycle and CO2 emissions of just 249g/km.

McLaren Spider implements double-wishbone suspensions on all sides, twin-valve adaptive dampers, steel springs, and anti-roll bars as in the 570S Coupe specification. The body controls created are very comfortable and incredibly tough. For drivers, they can choose soft or fast suspension with Active Dynamics Panel, so it can switch modes from Normal, Sport or Track. This feature allows the Mclaren 570S Spider to be comfortable for everyday use.
