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.

We'd consider upgrading from the standard model to the Luxury, because it brings heated, electrically adjustable seats that allow you to save your preferred settings. You also gain ambient interior lighting and, interestingly, engine bay ambient lighting, which can be seen through the engine cover and adds to the car's dramatic looks.

The 720S Spider can blast from 0-62mph in 2.9sec (just a tenth of a second slower than the coupé), while top speed is 212mph (or ‘just’ 202mph with the roof down). Even these numbers don’t do justice to how savagely fast it feels, though, and the engine sounds amazing – particularly when you drop the roof or lower the rear screen.
