Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Cars like the 570S Spider are bought with the heart rather than the head, and the truth is that anyone in the market for one probably won’t think twice about its eye-watering running costs – claimed combined fuel economy stands at just 26.6mpg and CO2 emissions are 249g/km.

Most buyers are likely to buy the 570S Spider on a PCP finance deal rather than with cash, and since the car’s residuals are expected to be strong, you could conceivably end up paying less per month than you would for its rivals.

Overview

A folding hard-top roof has only broadened the appeal of the 570S – the Spider is a hoot to drive quickly, yet is also usable as an everyday car.

  • Precise handling
  • Jaw-dropping looks
  • Everyday usability
  • Exhaust noise could sound better
  • Infotainment can be hard while driving
  • High running costs
