2015 McLaren 650S Spider: The 2015 Chicago Auto Show gives car buffs the rare opportunity to see an actual McLaren 650S Spider. Finished in Volcano Red, every curve, every crease, every intake, every millimeter of the McLaren 650S Spider is honed to make you swoon as well as improve aerodynamic performance. The side intakes force air into the cooling radiators keeping powertrain heat to a minimum for maximum performance. Check out the McLaren 650S Spider’s dihedral doors that bring drama and aerodynamic efficiency, its stunning all-LED headlights and retractable hardtop roof, painstakingly engineered to minimize weight and maintain an excellent center of gravity. The McLaren 650S Spider includes a one piece carbon fiber MonoCell chassis with rear extruded aluminum sub frame. The roof can be raised or lowered in less than 17-seconds at the push of a button and can do so at speeds of up to 19-mph. A rear, mid-mounted all-aluminum DOHC M838T 90 3.8-liter V-8 with twin-turbos is linked with a seven-speed McLaren dual clutch Seamless Shift Gearbox (SSG), with three engine and transmission modes: Normal, Sport and Track. The McLaren 650S Spider has a staggering top speed of 204-mph, just three mph less than the Coupe. Even more remarkable, the Spider’s drag increase is minimal at only 3% with the roof down. Within the two-passenger cockpit is portrait screen infotainment system includes navigation, Bluetooth and Sirius with Meridian sound. When the roof is raised, an additional 1.8 cu. ft. of luggage space is available for maximum versatility.
