Not surprisingly, a day after the new McLaren sports car, the 570S, made it debut at the New York Auto Show, a rendering emerges depicting the car as a convertible. Formally known as McLaren 570S Spyder, this car is far from a flight of fancy. It will be added to the 570 range next year.

McLaren 570S Spyder rendered by X-Tomi Design is modeled on the firm’s previous convertibles based on the 12C and the 650S, and uses the same roof arrangement, i.e. a folding hardtop made from carbon fiber that disappears in a cubbyhole behind the passenger compartment.

That is how things should logically unfold for the production McLaren 570S Spyder. However, there is a slight chance McLaren plays it differently this time and, going with the whole lightweight sports car theme, give the Spyder a fabric soft top. That would weigh a lot less and take up less space as well. But a soft top wouldn’t offer the optimum protection a hard top does, and that might not sit well with McLaren customers, most of whom are tech savvy businessmen.

Mechanically, McLaren 570S Spyder would be identical to the coupe, boasting the following technical specs:
