McLaren 650S performance specs released, priced from £195,250

McLaren has released performance specs and pricing for the new 650S ahead of Geneva debut next week.

Closely related to 12C, the 650S comes with a unique P1 supercar inspired front, more power and other under the skin updates.

The 650S Coupe is priced from £195,250 and the 650S Spider from £215,250. The 12C in comparison starts at £170k.

The 650S uses the same twin-turbo V8 fond in the 12C tuned to 641bhp (+25bhp), taking the coupe from 0-62mph in 3.0 seconds, 0-124mph comes in 8.4 seconds and the top speed is 207mph. Standing quarter mile takes 10.5 seconds.

The 12C coupe does 0-62mph in 3.3 seconds, 0-124mph in 9.0 seconds while the top speed is the same. McLaren likes to point out that the 650S is a full second faster than the iconic F1 road car to 124mph, but not that much faster than the 12C, which was already faster than the F.

The 650S also comes with enhanced handling, carbon ceramic brakes, unique ‘650’ lightweight alloy wheels shod with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres, IRIS satellite navigation with Bluetooth telephony, DAB digital radio in Europe, wireless tethering, audio streaming and voice control all as standard.

Some of the notable options include fixed-back carbon racing seats, electric steering column adjustment, a rear parking camera and extended carbon fibre throughout the interior.
