The convertible version of the world’s most versatile supercar, the 650S Spider retains the 650S’s breath-taking dynamics whilst opening you up to a whole new dimension of driving enjoyment. The 650S Spider comes to life with the roof down: the open road, weather and wind combined with the soundtrack of the McLaren V8 engine. The 650S Spider has a staggering top speed of 204 mph (328 km/h), just 3 mph less than the coupe, and can accelerate to 60 mph (97 km/h) in just 3.0 seconds. Even more remarkably, McLaren engineers ensured that the 650S Spider’s drag increase is minimal, at only 3% with the roof down. The roof itself can retract in less than 17 seconds whilst still on the move at speeds up 19 mph (30 km/h).
The breath-taking contours of the 650S Spider were the perfect result of McLaren’s form follows function design philosophy; every curve, every crease, every intake, every millimetre of the McLaren 650S Spider is honed to make you swoon as well as improve aerodynamic performance. The front splitter maximises cornering downforce, the flat underside and rear diffuser sticks the car to the road, sculpted side vents force air into the cooling radiators and, when braking above 59mph (95 km/h), the active Airbrake deploys, allowing the driver to brake harder and later.
Formula 1-inspired paint technology ensures the colour, tint, and finish is flawless, accentuating every line, curve and contour of the body, all while keeping weight to an absolute minimum. New lightweight forged alloy wheels shed weight but remain incredibly strong, amplifying the 650S’s dynamics, comfort and performance.
Not only does the 650S Spider’s styling take your breath away, but its exterior and symmetrical interior are designed to keep the driver’s eyes on the road, with a simply and logically designed dashboard layout. The race-crafted steering wheel has minimal elements to emphasise interaction between man and machine. The low cowl allows the driver to scan the road without obstruction, while the tops of the arches are positioned directly above the front wheels and are clearly visible from the driver’s seat, allowing the driver to position the 650S Spider perfectly.
This fine 1:8 scale model of the McLaren 650S Spider has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops using detailed colour and material specifications, and original CAD data supplied directly from McLaren Automotive. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
The McLaren 650S Spider is limited to 199 editions.
