The McLaren 765LT Spider has the same 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 found in the 765LT coupe. That means a whopping 755 horsepower and 590ft-lbs of torque are on tap in the Spider; officially making it the most powerful convertible that McLaren has ever produced.
The engine will push the droptop from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds and will get up to 124 mph in just 7.2 seconds. It will do a quarter mile in 10 seconds flat, making it Toretto approved. The top speed is 205 mph which is one heck of a blow dryer.
Power goes to the rear wheels through McLaren’s 7-speed SSG gearbox. The transmission has several driving modes including “comfort”, “sport”, and “track”. That means shift feel can match the situation if the driver so chooses.
