2014 McLaren 650S Racer Image
from Classic to Modern
This 2014 two seater sports car, with a price tag of £195,000, was based on the existing McLaren MP4-12C, but with the addition of numerous new components.
It was powered by the same mid-engined, aluminium, 4 litre, DOHC, 32 valve, twin turbo, V8 unit that developed 641 bhp at 7250 rpm, and 500 ft/lbs of torque at 6000 rpm.
Fitted with a 7 speed, almost instant paddle-shift dual clutch gearbox, it produced a top speed of 207 mph, a 0-60 mph time of 2.9 secs, and 0-100 mph in 8.2 secs.
It had a composite fibre glass chassis with aluminium sub-frames, carbon ceramic disc brakes all round, and a curb weight of 1470 kg.
A redesigned front bumper, a rear diffuser, and a repositioned front splitter helped to substantially increase down force.
It employed an in-house suspension system that provided three adjustment modes for both ride and handling characteristics.
The MSO 650S variant offered still more styling refinements.
