Buying

What should I be paying?

This is the ‘entry-level’ Spider in the McLaren range, and a well-sorted stab at a daily-use convertible that loses very little in terms of ability for having a disposable roof. And it’s in a strange place, price-wise. The 570S Spider starts at £164,750, but will end up somewhere far north of that with a few options. It makes an Audi R8 V10 Spider feel and look a bit boring, even if that car is only £130k-ish without options. A Porsche 911 Turbo S Cab is £156k and has similar performance, but not the sheer mid-engined, supercar-y presence. Similarly, something like a Lamborghini Huracan Spyder (sic), has the requisite show-off status points and hairy-chested feel, but starts at £200k without any added bits. You have to be careful with the tick list, is all I can say - the 570 we drove, once specced, weighed in with £30,760 of add-ons, making it a £195,510 car without any MSO meddling… And depreciation is mean at this level - especially if you use one every day. You also might want to budget for the odd speeding fine, too - I managed to cruise my way into a 300 Euro ticket on the launch route and didn’t realise I was even going that fast. Sad face.
