McLaren 650S

The debut of the highly anticipated McLaren 650S at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2014 was met with excitement from motorists and the media alike. When commenting upon the new 650S,McLaren imparted how;

“We haven’t built the 650S just for ten-tenths driving, and you don’t have to be a professional to enjoy it to the full. It feels special on any level; it’s up to the owner to choose the model he wants.”

The 650S is equipped with a 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 engine and a seven-speed dual clutch auto gearbox. These significant vehicular capabilities permit the 650S to achieve 650PS, 678Nm of torque, and a top speed of 207mph. Furthermore, these capabilities mean that the new McLaren 650S is actually faster than the iconic McLaren F1 hyper car! According to McLaren, the 650S coupé can reach 62mph in 3.0sec and 124mph in 8.4sec; a whole second faster than the F1.

This comparison with their F1 hyper car transitions to the interior of the 650S. Even the steering wheel has been fashioned to echo a F1 car; with tactile grip, small-diameter and lack of buttons or switches. What’s more, McLaren state that their craftsmen are;

“given the freedom to work every component by hand, ensuring an unsurpassed fit, finish and luxury feel. From the paint teams hand painting every car to each bolt being hand-torqued by our meticulous build team”.

Therefore, with regards to every aspect of the 650S- be it interior, exterior or vehicular- McLaren provide drivers a wealth of choice. McLaren have endeavoured to enable motorists to “inject personality into your car”. If you prefer a certain colour, fabric or trim, McLaren Special Operations (MSO) will customise your 650S’s interior to accommodate your individual preferences. As reported by motoring company Jardine Motors, McLaren have described the 650S as being specifically;

 “designed and developed to offer the enthusiast driver the ultimate in luxury, engagement and excitement, as well as dramatic yet beautiful styling”.

Consequently, the 650S boasts a luxurious interior which envelops motorists in a lightweight, hand-stitched Alcantara interior. Technological functions include satellite navigation, a DAB or SIRIUS radio, air conditioning, carbon fibre ceramic brake discs and Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tyres as standard. Moreover, motorists are extended the liberty to purchase additional carbon fibre race seats, a bespoke seven-speaker Meridian audio experience with surround sound, an extended leather pack and further use of carbon fibre trim throughout the interior as well as a rear-view camera and an electrically adjusting steering column. Despite its array of vehicular and stylistic benefits, the 650S is also surprisingly efficient. McLaren claim the 650S has 24.2mpg on the combined cycle and 275g/km of CO2, making it one of the most efficient cars in its class.

Ultimately, this plethora of vehicular, interior and fuel efficiency benefits transform the 650S into a highly proficient supercar. Irrespective of whether you purchase the coupé or Spider model, McLaren have ensured that, with the 650S, drivers will receive a highly accomplished and luxuriously optimised vehicle which has been refined to suit their individual driving and design preferences.
