What is it like on the inside?
As far as the cabin design goes, nothing has really changed. But then nothing needed to. The Spider feels like it’s been built and designed to F1 standards – it’s great to spend time in and the ergonomics are superb. The satnav works and it’s great, while seats, steering wheel and pedals are all perfectly placed. That wheel is a pleasure to grip, too.
Special mention for practicality here: because the roof design meant losing the rear parcel shelf, McLaren came up with something called buttress bags. These are roll-up sacks that store in the buttresses, but, when packed, store in the roof void (you have to keep the roof up, naturally), adding 52 litres of capacity. Make no mistake, McLaren has thought of everything – this is a great car to live with.
