McLaren Teases 720S Spider Ahead of December 8 Reveal

Drop-top variant will be second model of Track 25 plan

The 720S is to 60 mph, hitting the mark in 2.5 seconds to tie with the Turbo S. Those who are looking for a new super quick drop-top are in luck, because McLaren is likely cooking up a 720S Spider.

McLaren is being coy about the identity of the new model in this recent social media teaser, but we're pretty confident it's the 720S Spider. In a separate press release, McLaren hints at a new convertible, saying "a new McLaren supercar is set to raise the roof next month."

If it's indeed the McLaren 720S Spider, expect it to use the same engine as the . That means a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 with 710 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque. It shouldn't be much slower to 60 mph, if at all, compared with the coupe. Consider this: McLaren lists the same 0-62 mph estimate of 3.2 seconds for both the S and 570S Spider.

The model debuting next month will be the second in McLaren's , which calls for 18 new vehicles or variations by 2025. The first model was the that was revealed last month.

The new McLaren will debut Saturday, December 8.
