2019 McLaren 720s Spider

From Jalopnik:

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

The top of the Spider is a single pane of carbon-reinforced plastic with a fast-action 11-second retraction and can be retracted while the car is moving up to 31 miles per hour.

6

Because of the carbon monocoque's integrated roll structure, this convertible version of the 720 did not need any additional bracing to cut out a two-foot section of roof.

3

The Spider’s top speed with the top up is the same as the coupe: 212 mph. With the top down you'll lose 10 mph.

The 720S Spider keeps the same mechanicals that the coupe has: 710 hp, 568 lb-ft of torque, turbocharged V8, and a 7-speed SSG gearbox.
