When it comes to exterior, we should probably compare the 2018 570S Spider to the outgoing 570S Coupe. The new model has remained mostly unchanged in terms of appearance, with the recognizable McLaren design. However, there would be some changes such as the rear spoiler which will be extended and nearly half an inch taller than the one seen on the 570S Coupe.
