After the pictures and information about the 650S supercar were leaked, McLaren has now previewed the vehicle ahead of its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
The 650S supercar is based on the 12C and offers some engineering improvements. It also borrows the front end design of the P1 hybrid limited-edition monster.
The new supercar features wheels shod in Pirelli P Zero Corsa sticky tires, tweaked suspension spring rates, an updated ProActive Chassis Control system, bigger air intakes, a reduced drag coefficient and Alcantare trim for the dashboard.
It also comes with the P1-like one-piece carbon fiber tub seats.
Under the hood, the 650S will have a 3.8-liter V8 engine capable of churning out 650 hp and 678 Nm of torque. The supercar will do a 0 to 100 km/h sprint in just 3 seconds.
“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,” he adds.
There will also a Spider model and both will be on display at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, scheduled to begin from March 4.
