Meet 2016’s Hottest Hypercars: LaFerrari Roadster vs McLaren P1 Spider

p1 laferrari gifWe can only take full credit for the McLaren renderings shown here – the LaFerrari Roadster  is from Garrett Bradford’s blog.

But pairing up these fantasy renderings seems logical. Both will heavily leverage the folding-top tech from the 458 and 650S cabriolets, with flying buttresses to house parts of the folding hardtop mechanicals and three-piece folding panels to stack compactly above the engine bays.

Of course, a flatter tail is definitely sexier — as shown by this unfinished render draft.

So, why Spider versions of these hardcore hypercars?

It is a natural evolution for both, and allows production of an extra-exclusive followup to both coupe designs. This helps amortize their astronomical development costs over more units, while also keeping initial production caps for both intact.
