McLaren 650S (2014–)
McLaren 650S launched
The latest addition to the McLaren range accelerates to 62mph from rest in just 3.0 seconds, and can reach 124mph in just 8.4 seconds. The standing quarter mile (400m) takes 10.5 seconds, and top speed is 207 mph.
This performance puts the latest model from McLaren a full second quicker than the iconic McLaren F1 road car to 200 km/h, and 0.6 sec faster over the standing quarter mile, underlining its performance focus. This represents a sprint time to 200 km/h more than half a second quicker than the rapid 12C, which continues in production. Pricing for the McLaren 650S Coupe starts at £195,250, with the 650S Spider starting at £215,250.
Optimised aerodynamics ensure that the performance of the McLaren 650S is accessible and increases driver engagement. Enhanced handling, high-speed balance and steering turn-in result from improved levels of downforce
Despite these impressive performance figures, more akin to a stripped out road racer, the McLaren 650S boasts a high level of luxury specification. Carbon ceramic brakes sit behind unique ‘650’ lightweight alloy wheels shod with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres, IRIS satellite navigation with Bluetooth telephony, DAB digital radio in Europe (SIRIUS satellite radio in North America), wireless tethering, audio streaming and voice control are all fitted as standard, and the cabin is trimmed in Alcantara.
Enhanced levels of optional specification are also offered, including fixed-back carbon racing seats, based on the lightweight design found in the McLaren P1, an electric steering column adjustment assists ingress and egress, a rear parking camera and extended carbon fibre throughout the interior.
The ‘no compromise’ McLaren 650S also performs efficiently, returning 24.2 mpg on the EU combined cycle, and a CO2figure of 275g/km making it one of the most efficient models in class. This is testament to the drive by McLaren for continued improvement and class-leading efficiency.
