This is the convertible version of last year’s Best of the Best sports car, and it’s just as impressive in terms of performance and appearance. Equipped with the same naturally aspirated 5.2-liter, 610 hp V-10 engine and 7-speed, dual-clutch gearbox as the coupe, the Spyder reaches 201 mph and sprints from zero to 62 mph in 3.4 seconds. Because it’s a convertible, it’s a little heavier than the coupe—and thus slightly slower and not as stiff—but with the top down, it offers a driving experience that’s even more stirring.

  • The hydraulically controlled soft top can lower in 17 seconds and while the car is traveling as fast as 31 mph. 
  • As the roof folds away, two fins rise from the rear of the car to improve aerodynamics and enhance airflow through the engine compartment.
  • If the vehicle is flipped, a spring-loaded roll bar will emerge to protect the car’s occupants.
  • To fully enjoy the sound of the V-10 without lowering the roof, you can drop the rear window.
