The new McLaren 720S Spider made its Malaysian debut today.

The British carmaker says its latest supercar will strengthen its current range of sports cars and supercars in Malaysia, including the 570S Coupe, 570S Spider, 600LT Coupe, 600LT Spider and 720S Coupe.

With a dry weight of 1,332kg, the 720s Spider is just 49kg heavier than the 720s, and shares the same performance specs as its hardtop counterpart, at least when the roof is up.

Powering it is a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, supplying 710hp of power and 770Nm of torque.

McLaren claims the convertible is able to charge from 0-100km/h in 2.9 seconds, with top speeds of between 325-341km/h.

Meanwhile, its retractable hard top has been redesigned completely, with a single-piece carbon fibre roof panel as standard. The top utilises an electrical folding mechanism, which makes it quieter and swifter to operate.

Inside, the 720s Spider features an 8-inch high-resolution central infotainment screen, the main hub for the vehicle’s functions.

It also gets a new 10-spoke lightweight alloy wheel design along with standard Pirelli P ZERO tyres.

The supercar is sold in three specifications, namely Standard, Performance and Luxury.

It can be had in any of the 23 exterior colours by McLaren, with the Belize Blue and Aztec Gold being the new options in the palette.

The 720S Spider is available for RM1.22 million onwards.
