McLaren 570S Spider…not for baldies

New McLaren 570S Spider

JASON Statham, Bruce Willis, Vin Diesel.

They reckon these hunky Hollywood heroes are sexiest because they are bald.

That’s all very well and good but they all miss out when it comes to the stunning new McLaren 570S Spider.

This is the latest most exclusive way to get the supercar wind-in-the-hair experience. So tough luck lads!

Anyway, the Spider.

If you’ve got £164,750 to spare it gives you a ticket to something very special, the ultimate motoring fashion accessory of the summer.

It becomes the fourth variant of McLaren’s Sport Series range – alongside the 540C, 570S Coupe and 570GT and will deliver 196mph flat-out with roof down.

Donald Trump will not be buying one…

That roof is a retractable, two-piece hardtop unit, built using lightweight composite panels.

You simply push a button, and that folding hardtop opens or closes in 15 seconds, at speeds of up to 25mph. Further – and just like you can on an Audi R8 V10 Spyder – there’s a wind deflector that can be raised or lowered with the roof up and down.

There’s no compromise of performance from the Coupe, despite adding 46kg in weight.

So the 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 still pumps out 562bhp and equals the Coupe’s 0-62mph time of 3.2secs.

The 0-124mph sprint arrives in under 10 seconds and if you leave the roof up, the top speed rises from 196mph to 204mph. Yep, same as the Coupe.

So get the Lottery on and it’s all yours for £164k and it gets its world premiere at the forthcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed.

It’ll make non-Hollywood heroes with hair sexy.
