Brit-Based Supercar Maker Unveils Third New ModelFri, 28 Feb 2014 00:00:00 -0800
THIRD time’s going to be the charm for McLaren, as the Woking-based firm has unveiled its third supercar ahead of a public debut at the forthcoming Geneva Motor Show.
Hot on the heels of the P1 hypercar, the new 650S slots between the firm’s flagship motor and already established 12C.
With bold claims of race car-like performance while retaining the luxury and refinement of its premium supercar rivals, McLaren has revealed that the 650S can sprint to 124mph from rest – the industry standard 200kph – in a blistering 8.4 seconds.
The car’s top speed is a largely academic 207mph, but you’ll need to find a very real £195,250 if you want to have one your drive.
That asking price does get you a 650 horsepower 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 engine, carbon ceramic brakes, satellite navigation with Bluetooth, DAB digital radio, audio streaming and voice control plus an Alcantara-trimmed cabin.
