The McLaren 600LT Spider

The edge amplified



Available to order now, the new 600LT Spider fully embodies the McLaren Longtail philosophy of increased power, reduced weight, optimised aerodynamics, track-focused dynamics and limited availability. In addition, it brings a new dimension of excitement over the 600LT Coupé, without compromise to the dynamic purity of the most performance-focused car in the Sports Series line-up: a retractable hardtop to give the choice of open-air driving.

McLaren 600LT Spider: The full story on a new Longtail convertible

  • New 600LT Spider combines acclaimed track-honed dynamic excellence of 600LT Coupé with added exhilaration of open-air driving
  • Maintains McLaren Longtail ethos of increased power, reduced weight, optimised aerodynamics, absolute driver engagement, track-focused dynamics and limited availability
  • Nearly a quarter of parts on 600LT Spider are new compared to 570S Spider
  • Top-exit exhausts introduced with Coupé retained for Spider, further amplifying aural and visual excitement, especially when the roof or rear window are down
  • No additional body strengthening or reinforcement required for convertible bodystyle
  • Lightest dry weight of 1,297kg; just 50kg premium over 600LT Coupé 600LT and at least 80kg lighter than any direct competition
  • 100kg* weight reduction over 570S Spider at DIN weight evidences determination to minimise weight of an LT model, benefitting dynamic finesse and overall performance
  • 600PS and 620Nm from 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine; power-to-weight ratio of 463PS/tonne at lightest dry weight underpins remarkable performance
  • Acceleration on par with 600LT Coupé: 0-100km/h (62mph) identical at 2.9 seconds; 0-200km/h (124mph) in 8.4 seconds is just 0.2 seconds slower. Top speed of 324km/h (201mph) with roof in raised position
  • Aerodynamic carbon fibre bodywork – including front splitter, side sills, extended diffuser and fixed rear wing – contributes to 100kg of downforce at 250km/h (155mph)
  • McLaren Super Series-derived forged aluminium double wishbone suspension and stiffer anti-roll bars help deliver dynamic precision and new heights of driver engagement
  • Latest-generation lightweight brake calipers, carbon ceramic discs and a McLaren Senna-inspired brake booster ensure precise pedal feel and phenomenal stopping power: 200km/h to standstill in just 121m
  • Bespoke 600LT Pirelli P Zero™ Trofeo R tyres for track-focused dynamics and enhanced engagement
  • Limited volume; all cars hand-assembled at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, Surrey, England

“In creating the 600LT Coupé we took a radical decision to incorporate the top-exit exhausts, but it was an even greater challenge to make these work with the added complication of a retractable hardtop designed to operate whilst the car is in motion. It was certainly worth the effort; not only have we retained the 600LT’s unique feature but we’ve also enhanced the visual and aural experience with the excitement and drama that only a spider can deliver.”

Rob Melville, Design Director, McLaren Automotive

Light on weight, heavy on Longtail abilities

“Having achieved remarkable weight savings with the 600LT Coupé, we were determined to repeat our success with the Spider in comparison to the 570S Spider. That car was already lightest-in-class, with the weight of the retractable roof mechanism minimised, so we were looking for every opportunity to reduce mass without any compromise. Once again, we exceeded our target and have produced car a with a lightest dry weight of 1, 297kg that is in every respect a true Longtail, but with the additional thrill of open top motoring on demand.”
Paul Burnham, Chief Engineer, McLaren 600LT

  • 100kg lighter* than the 570S Spider, with a lightest dry weight of 1,297kg giving a power-to-weight ratio of 463PS/tonne
  • Bespoke top-exit exhausts, carbon fibre aerodynamic parts and minimalist, track-focused interior all contribute to this being the lightest-ever Sports Series convertible
  • Lightweight braking system and forged aluminium wishbones from second-generation Super Series and optional Super-Lightweight Carbon Fibre Racing Seats from the Ultimate Series McLaren Senna bring high-value technology into the Sports Series

Carbon fibre retractable hard top delivers open-air exhilaration on demand

“In creating the 600LT Coupé we took a radical decision to incorporate the top-exit exhausts, but it was an even greater challenge to make these work with the added complication of a retractable hardtop designed to operate whilst the car is in motion. It was certainly worth the effort; not only have we retained the 600LT’s unique feature but we’ve also enhanced the visual and aural experience with the excitement and drama that only a spider can deliver.”
Rob Melville, Design Director, McLaren Automotive

  • Lightweight one-touch roof mechanism with soft-close technology engineered to function with top-exit exhausts
  • Composite roof construction with retracting mechanism adds just 48kg at DIN weight compared to 600LT Coupé
  • Hard top roof ensures security, comfort and convenience whilst preserving design elegance

The 600LT Spider’s folding hard top roof dramatically enhances the driving experience, yet gives very little away to the Coupé in terms of performance

“The McLaren 600LT Spider adds a new dimension of excitement to the most extreme model in the Sports Series family, while losing none of the Longtail focus. Taking full advantage of the strength of the carbon fibre MonoCell II chassis has ensured that the new Spider has dynamic abilities and performance on par with the 600LT Coupé, for a weight premium of just 50kg and with no additional structural strengthening required. In addition to our weight advantage over competitors, we have also retained the top-exit exhausts that debuted on the Coupé – and I’m pleased to report that they sound and look even better with the roof or rear window of the Spider lowered.”
