Both of the new McLaren 570S variants will be powered by the same 3.8-liter V8 making 562 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. Similar to the 650S Spider, the McLaren 570S Spider will incorporate a folding hardtop roof and will weigh slightly more than the coupe variant. The company however, has a good track record of having similar performance between their coupe and convertible models, so expect the Spider to go 0-62 in 3.2 seconds and have a top speed of 205 mph.

It is believed that the McLaren 570S GT will go on sale next year and the 570S Spider will come a year after that in 2017.
