Now, official images and specifications of the upcoming model have surfaced on the web world and going by these, it seems like McLaren has another winner in its hands.
It has emerged that Jenson Button assisted McLaren with developing their latest supercar, which is powered by a twin-turbo V8 3.8-liter engine that bestows the car with a max power of 650hp. The car could replace the 12C, as the new car is similar to the earlier mode, albeit, with better suspension, brakes and more aerodynamic. Styling-wise, the 650S carries the front fascia of the P1, while the rear end comes from the 12C.
As per the manufacturer, the upcoming model has been designed and developed to offer the “enthusiast driver the ultimate in luxury, engagement and excitement, as well as dramatic yet beautiful styling”. McLaren goes on to say that the experience it has gained in 50 years of competing, and winning, at the highest levels of motorsport has been put to use for the development of the new McLaren 650S. The 650S takes several technologies and features from both the McLaren 12C as well as the McLaren P1, which currently has a ‘sold-out’ status. The upcoming model will be positioned between the above two cars in McLaren Automotive’s highly exotic product portfolio.
