2016 McLaren 650S news, pictures, specifications, and information
Convertible
McLaren Automotive introduced the McLaren 650S in February of 2014, formally unveiling it at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. It shares the MP4-12C's carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer chassis, and is powered by the same McLaren M838T 3.8 liter twin-turbo V8. It makes 641 horsepower and 500 pound feet of torque. Power gets to the pavement through a seven-speed, near instantaneous-shift, dual-clutch gearbox. Cementing its bona fides in the Supercar club, the 650S claims a top speed of 207 miles per hour and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds.

The convertible 650S Spider weighs 88 pounds more than the coupe at 3,239 pounds, but it offers nearly identical heart-pounding performance. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 in three seconds and has a top speed of 204 miles per hour.

McLaren also developed a race-ready version of the 650S featuring a new 6-speed sequential racing transmission, vented disc brakes with six-piston calipers up front and four-piston units in back, a wider track, and revised suspension geometry. It is distinguished from the road car by larger air intakes and a front splitter, carbon fiber air intakes and anew rear wing. The 650S achieved its biggest success when it won the 2016 Liqui Moly Bathurst 12 Hour race in Australia, setting a new lap record with a time of 2:01.567 in February of this year.
