It’s only ten days since the McLaren 650S was revealed as a more hardcore version of McLaren 12C supercar – and with more than a hint of P1 styling – but McLaren are already building it and have revealed performance and price details. Available as either a 650S Coupe or 650S Spider, the starting point is £195,250 for the Coupe and £212,250 for the Spider, that’s almost £20k more for the 650S Coupe than the 12C Coupe and £17k more for the Spider.
But apart from the more dramatic styling, increased downforce and tweaks from the extra power – the 650S gets 641bhp – to the improved handling and dynamics, you also get increased levels of optional equipment including carbon racing seats from the P1, rear parking camera and full carbon fibre interior.
The performance is also improved over the already impressive figures the 12C offers, with 62mph coming up in 3.0 seconds and 124mph in 8.2 seconds with the standing quarter mile taking 10.5 seconds and top speed at 207mph. That makes the 650S quiker to 124mph and over the standing quarter mile than the Mclaren F1.
Despite all the improvements and stunning performance, the 650S isn’t going to be a car that’s tough to live with every day, with the promise of a ride in road traffic that belies its credentials and standard equipment that in includes IRIS SatNav, Bluetooth, DAB and full Alcantara interior.
The McLaren 650 S will debut next week at the Geneva Motor Show, and with the first 650S already tolling off the production line we should be seeing the new McLaren on the road very soon.
