Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
A substantial 25% of parts are new, yet it only costs £24k more than the 12C coupe. A P1-style nose and side skirts help develop 40% more high-speed downforce without racking up the drag coefficient. There are lighter forged alloys, standard carbon-ceramic brakes (with much-improved pedal feel) and the option of fixed bucket seats inspired by the P1's space-age chairs.

Pros
  • Impressive acceleration
  • Impressive ride quality
Cons
  • More expensive than a 12C
  • Fiddly infotainment

Reviewers from topgear have found the following***:
V8 has new heads, pistons and cams plus bigger rads and a new exhaust. That means 650bhp and a socking 500lb ft oftorque. Car has P1-type styling, a surprisingly modified chassis, carbon-ceramic brakes as standard, and carbon fibre doors.

Pros
  • Powerful V8
  • Stunningly fast

The Spider is the convertible version of McLaren's 650S coupe. It has a folding hard top that tucks itself away in 17 seconds at up to 19mph. The Spider's best feature isn't the roof itself, but the electric rear window. It acts as a volume control for the V8 twin turbo with the roof up.

Pros
  • Foldable hard top
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • No roof
