McLaren 720S Spider teased, to be revealed December 8

The brutal McLaren 720S is about to get whole lot more windy

The McLaren 720S supercar is about to get a drop-top variant, with a Spider version teased ahead of a December 8 reveal.

The brand itself is staying quiet on the details for now, saying only that "a new McLaren supercar is set to raise the roof next month".

But it doesn't take much detective work to determine the 720S as the convertible culprit, which will form the next rung in the brand's promise to reveal 18 new models or derivatives (the first was the Speedtail).

Expect a Spider version to share the hardtop's twin-turbocharged V8 that will generate 527kW arrives at 7250rpm and 770Nm at 5500rpm. And while a drop-top will inevitably be heavier, don't expect much change to the blistering 2.9 second run to 100km/h.

Top speed, by the way, should remain around 340km/h. Which is a lot of wind in the hair...

Are convertibles really cooler? Tell us in the comments below.
