It's (Relatively) Affordable

The P1, the first road car built under the McLaren Automotive banner, garnered a lot of attention when it was released in 2013. Similar to a great white shark, its reputation is known by many, though it is rarely seen in the wild. This is partly because of its limited production run of 375 and partly due to its seven-figure price tag.

The scarcity of this brand is set to change with McLaren's new Sport Series. Launched in 2015, this collection marks a drastic departure from the P1's high sticker price. With models starting under $200,000, you no longer need to be a sports icon or pop star to park a McLaren in your garage.

Even with its lower price, the Sport Series still feels worthy of the supercar moniker, perched at the apex of performance and refinement. The first entry in the series was the 570S Coupe, joined shortly afterwards by the comfort-oriented 570GT. Both have been well-received by sports car enthusiasts. But they lacked one sought after ingredient: the ability to embark on open-air excursions.

Enter the 570S Spider, the convertible version with a two-section hardtop. Mike Flewitt, McLaren Automotive Chief Executive Officer, describes it as a "convertible without compromise" because it delivers "the same thrilling dynamic performance and exceptional driver involvement enjoyed in a 570S Coupé, but with the added attraction of a retractable hardtop that delivers the extra exhilaration of roof-down motoring.” Plus, with its starting price of $208,800, the 570S Spider becomes the most affordable convertible McLaren you can buy.
