McLaren unveils 570S Spider video

The entry-level McLaren is all the supercar you'll ever need.

McLaren has introduced a third body style to its entry-level Sport Series, giving the brand a convertible option to join the 570S and 570GT coupes.

The brand's new 570 Spider should prove to be the most affordable open-topped car in its relatively short history, even if its price is an eye-watering $500,000. 

It also fills the gap left by the discontinued 650S Spider and coupe while the brand finalises work on the more capable (and no doubt pricier) 720S Spider.

McLaren says the 570S is "a convertible without compromise".

While it may be the baby of the brand, the 570S still offers shattering performance thanks to a twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V8 that produces 419kW and 600Nm - enough to power the Spider to 100km/h in 3.2 seconds before reaching a top speed of 328km/h (or 315km/h if you happen to have the roof down).
