Adding a new offering to its already impressive portfolio of car creations, McLaren launches 720S Spider in Malaysia.

Known for making high-octane luxury supercars and sportscars, the dihedral-door McLaren 720S Spider is a hybrid between a convertible supercar and a coupe. Turning heads with its streamlined exterior, the brand-new supercar boasts a carbon fibre structure and an incredible fly buttress finishing, which offers its ultra-lightweight and tough frame with an improved powertrain cooling system and downforce.

Like every McLaren, a carbon fibre monocoque is used to form the backbone – and as for the 720S Spider, the Monocage II-S. The carbon fibre-fortified build is so robust that it is capable of supporting the retractable hardtop, which folds in under 11 seconds. The ultra-slim A-pillars are also retained for the new vehicle, giving it an all-round cockpit view. If you are looking to bask in the spectacular night scene, an option in electrochromic glass is available.

Operating its heart is the McLaren 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine with the delivery of 720PS and 770Nm of torque, rendering it an incredible startup – it is capable of accelerating from 0km/h to 200km/h in just 7.9 seconds. It also boasts a top speed of 341km/h.

Just as stunning as its appearance, the interior is where you can find all the finest details. Once inside, you will feel its luxury leather upholstery tantalising your senses as you run your fingertips over the fine carbon fibre trim. As you are about to take a spin, get ready to experience the well-crafted switchgear, which almost every piece of it is made from machined aluminium. With it, you can easily switch driving modes from Comfort to Sport to Track with the help of its seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The McLaren 720S Spider is nothing short of groundbreaking. The 8-inch Central Infotainment Screen is able to show the information of all the key drivers, thanks to McLaren Driver Interface. There is also Folding Driver Display behind the steering wheel to facilitate easy viewing. The need for impressive audio will be satiated with the built-in four-speaker audio system as well. Last but not least, the aerodynamic automobile makes a good choice for travellers. It provides 150 litres of storage in the front while the tonneau can store up to 58 litres.
