Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The 720S Spider is more expensive than rivals from Ferrari and Lamborghini, and will cost you more in depreciation.

This is unlikely, though, to put off the sort of fabulously wealthy people it’s aimed at, just as they’ll find it easy enough to afford the huge insurance, servicing and fuel bills.

Overview

Like it’s coupé sister, the McLaren 720S is staggeringly fast and involving, yet perfectly usable every day. Unlike most convertibles, its handling doesn’t feel in any way compromised by the removal of the fixed roof.

  • Stunning handling and performance
  • Surprisingly comfortable ride
  • Sounds suitable epic
  • Hugely expensive
  • Distracting touchscreen
  • Bigger blindspots than the coupé
