Model in brief

McLaren 650S boasts a carbon fiber monocoque with an aluminum structure at the rear and front. Suspension type - ProActive Chasic Control. Under the hood, a V-shaped “eight” with a volume of 3.8 liters is installed. This engine produces 641 horsepower. This unit is powered by a 7-speed dual clutch SSG gearbox.

Interestingly, carbon-ceramic discs are already installed on the model as standard. If we talk about the most practical and really necessary functions, then it is worth noting the attention of ABS, DRS, ESC, as well as Traction Control and Launch Control. Plus, this car can perform active braking with a spoiler.


There are several versions of the McLaren 650S. It is worth talking about the most popular. And it is the McLaren 650S Spider. It was announced in 2013 in Geneva. It is heavier than standardversion for 40 kilograms. The power is the same, only the dimensions have changed. And that's not much. The car is 0.4 cm taller and 0.3 cm shorter. It takes only 15 seconds for the roof of the car to fold. Initially, the car cost at least 280 thousand dollars.

It is interesting that this model has replaced its predecessor - 12C Spider. But only 25 percent of the parts were borrowed from her.

This car accelerates to hundreds in three seconds. It takes 5.8 seconds for the speedometer needle to reach 160 km/h. From zero to 200 km / h, the car accelerates in 8.6 seconds. What about braking? If the car was moving at a speed of 100 km / h, then it will completely stop in 30.7 meters. If the speedometer was 200 km / h, then the braking distance will be 124 m. By the way, the maximum that this car can reach is 329 km / h.

This version of the McLaren 650S was presented to the public in April 2015. The car is the successor to the racing car known as the F1 GTR Longtail. Only the novelty is 100 kilograms lighter than its predecessor. And all thanks to the fact that carbon fiber was used in the manufacturing process of the chassis. There's still no air conditioning inside, and the new rims are 3.2 kilograms lighter than those fitted to the P1. The exhaust system was decided to be made of titanium.

You have to give credit to the designers. The interior and exterior of the car look great. Particularly pleasing are the graceful curves of LED optics and relief. As well as brake calipers that are paintedunder body color. The side mirrors, made in a drop-shaped form, also attract attention. And, of course, powerful air intakes cannot but attract attention.

By the way, the M838T engine has a considerable power - 675 hp. With. Thanks to this indicator, up to a hundred, the car accelerates in 2.9 seconds. The maximum speed is 330 kilometers per hour. And this car costs about $350,000.

By the way, the braking distance of the novelty is less than that of the aforementioned McLaren 650S Super Sport. 30.2 meters is how much this car needs to stop at a speed of 100 km / h. And 115 meters if the speedometer was at 200 km/h.

This is another version of the supercar. In 2014, manufacturers announced that the GT3 would be either a modification of the McLaren 650S or a standalone model. As a result, a novelty appeared, which immediately attracted attention with its characteristics. There is a new sequential 7-speed gearbox and ventilated brake discs equipped with 6-piston calipers. But it's on the front wheels. At the rear they began to install 4-piston. The new suspension geometry has also changed.

Of the external changes, we can note the updated rear wing and front splitter. And large air intakes made of carbon fiber.

Under the hood is a V-shaped “eight”, with a volume of 3.8 liters. This twin-turbo engine produces 493 horsepower. And the new ECU enhances its work.

You can't say that the man who bought the McLarenwill think about efficiency, but the fuel consumption of this car is very modest. In mixed mode, the car consumes 11-12 liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers.

In general, the car is luxurious, but obviously not for the city. Rather, to demonstrate their status. And it costs about 23 million rubles. It is not surprising that in our country there are practically no owners of such cars.
