McLaren speaks of a 40% more downforce on the 650S Spider at high speed. A figure which, by the way, is of no use if we do not know what speed you get that downforce, thanks to details such as the huge rear spoiler.


4. Because there will only be other 499 McLaren 675LT Spider like yours in the world. McLaren has willed that this model is marketed in a limited run of 500 units. The roll is exactly the same as that offered on the McLaren 675LT-body coupe, and that by the way would have already been exhausted. The Spider can be a second chance to be with a Mclaren very special, that will start in the 285.450 pounds in Uk (about 400,000€ at the current exchange rate).


5. Because it is really photogenic. You will not be the slightest doubt, the McLaren 675LT Spider twisted necks.
