Prices Pictures Car Reviews - 2015 McLaren 650S - It has been disturbed, it has been partially leaked, but here it is in all its glory: the McLaren 650 S.
Here's what you need to know. The 650S is not the long-rumored" baby McLaren', the car codenamed" set P13" for the battle with the Porsche 911, but a date 12C is going to sit in this car - but of course P1 below epic - McLaren in range. Confused? We will try to explain.
The 650S is a powerful, harder version of the 12C McLaren described as "the fastest, sexiest, best equipped and most beautiful supercars in the mass production yet. It uses an improved 3.8- liter twin - turbo V8 -12C, prompted with an output of 616bhp 641bhp (which is 650 horsepower, hence the name) version. The torque of up to about 10 percent.
You want performance numbers? What's with 0-62 mph in 3.0 seconds and a top speed of 207 mph ? Small improvements in the statistics of 12C ( 3.1 seconds and 204 mph), they are but small improvements to keep the 650S, just in front of the Ferrari 458 Italia.
They are the new interface, the notice of course, primarily on the basis of P1. LED lights are now things while larger air intakes in both the nose and above the rear wheels, which improve not only help cooling, but also the aerodynamics of the 650S.
Surprisingly, the 650S has the same drag coefficient as 12C, but produces 24 percent more downforce at 150 mph.
The 650S uses the same adaptive damping system as 12C. Although spring rates were about Salon- range "improve engagement drivers been increased, McLaren says there is no loss of comfort, the journey of a promise." " We were also told that the feedback from the steering and brake feel does not appear to improve on the 12C - a -all sleazy.
More kit, too: there is a new five-spoke alloys, Pirelli tires as intelligence and electronic entertainment and optional carbon racing seats.
So far, mid-life facelift. But here's a little confusing. The 650S does not replace the 12C, but sits on top of it. As the previous point? We learn that over £ 20,000 and £ 176,000 asking price over 12C.
Which, when you consider the additional standard kit (especially considering the 650S has carbon-ceramic brakes as standard, a selection of £ 10k in the 12th century), one wonders why a buyer choose to 12C when they could have the 650S - Car appears to have improved by five percent in every department - for the same money a lot.
Everything will be clear when the 650S Coupe and Spider made its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in early March. For now, what we make of this new face?
