    Looking to move up the ladder to my next McLaren and want a spider. Don’t have a great deal more cash to sink. Does anyone have experience as to whether 650S or 570S is the right move?

    Both are great cars, performance wise they are very very close, the 650s is a great car but you won't find it much different than your 12-c (I'm assuming you have one). The 570s spider has nicer interior, better Iris system, overall updated look imo.

    Correct assumption on the 12-c (and looking forward to driving it again if these storms ever pass!). Thanks for the response and your thoughts. I do love the look of the 650S, but am worried it’s not enough of a step on from the 12-c, as you point out.

    I have a 2016 650S Spider which is admittedly loaded with nice interior equipment. I've recently had an opportunity for unlimited seat-time in a 570S lightly equipped coupe. There is NO comparison, for me, in the degree of 'specialness' , and certainly beauty. I shall be hanging on to the 650S.
    Robb and Brian Davisson like this.

    I have herd this from others that have had a chance to run them both an they said 650s an 12c S is much better all around better performing. I haven’t had a chance to compare my 2014 spyder to it yet, but would lean towards a 675lt spider

    I looked at both side-by-side: I liked the 650S because it looked great and you could still see the engine. The 570S is edgier and easier to get in and out of. I chose the 570S because I figured it would be more advanced as McLaren would have had more time to sort things out; just an assumption on my part, not based on any facts
