2020 McLaren 720S
It’s been the long-standing conviction of performance-minded car enthusiasts that the convertible version of a sporty vehicle is the poseur’s choice. An M3 convertible? That’s an abomination! A Porsche 911 Turbo cabriolet? Okay, charlatan! Say hello to Justin Bieber for us.
But, in the rarefied air that the 720S Spider breathes, the loss of the roof has no real impact. This is a vehicle that launched itself to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds and through the quarter mile at 10.3 seconds, only a tenth of a second less insanely quick than its hardtop brother in each measure. The Spider tops out at 212 mph, same as the coupe. Hell, it’ll do 202 mph with the top down. With an identical 710-hp twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 and only 108 additional pounds of heft compared with the coupe version, the performance trade-offs of the Spider are infinitesimally small and largely academic.
