The new McLaren 650S sits alongside the highly capable 12C and sold-out McLaren P1, and the latest model from McLaren sports the same front fascia as the P1, with the rear end coming from the 12C. McLaren says that the 650S has been designed and developed to offer the “enthusiast driver the ultimate in luxury, engagement and excitement, as well as dramatic yet beautiful styling”. The McLaren 650S badge refers to the power output of 650PS (641 bhp), coming from the British-built McLaren M838T twin turbo V8 engine. ‘S’ stands for ‘Sport’.
‘As always with McLaren, the new design is there for good engineering reasons,‘ says McLaren Automotive CEO Mike Flewitt. ‘The newly designed front bumper improves downforce and steering turn-in. The high speed handling balance is now even better. The LED lights use less power and last longer.‘
‘McLaren is a fast moving company, continually striving for improvements and technical advantages. We are always seeking to innovate, to be the class leaders, to bring new technologies and thinking to market. That’s our Formula 1 heritage shining through,’ explains Mike Flewitt. ‘Everything we’ve learnt from the 12C and the McLaren P1™ has gone into the design and development of the McLaren 650S.’, he adds.
The McLaren 650S Coupé and Spider will make their public debut on Stand 1240, Hall 1 at 12.00CET (11.00GMT) on Tuesday, 4 March 2014 at the 84th International Geneva Auto Show 2014.’
