2015 McLaren 650S Review, Price and Release – Welcome to Neocarsuv.Com, we will provide the latest information about the McLaren 650S Redesign. 2015 McLaren 650S is one brand new car from McLaren that will be release in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 McLaren 650S.
McLaren Automotive will return to the 2014 Geneva Motor Show with its fastest, most engaging, best equipped and most beautiful series-production supercar yet.
The McLaren 650S joins the range as an additional model alongside the 12C and sold-out McLaren P1™, and learns from both models as well as 50 years of competing in the highest levels of motorsport. Available as a fixed-head coupé or as a Spider, with a retractable folding hard top, the McLaren 650S promises to redefine the high performance supercar segment, and has been designed and developed to provide the ultimate in driver engagement on the road and on the race track.
The 650S badge designation refers to the power output – 650PS (641 bhp), – of the unique British-built McLaren M838T twin turbo V8 engine. ‘S’ stands for ‘Sport’, underlining the focus and developments made to handling, transmission, drivability and engagement. Performance figures will be confirmed ahead of the Geneva Show but will improve on the already rapid 12C which continues on sale.
No pricing has been announced and McLaren has lots of room between the $230,000 12C and the $1-million P1. We expect the price of the new car to be priced around the $300k mark.
The design is inspired by the McLaren P1™, previewing a new family design language. The front bumper gives the McLaren 650S a dramatic, yet clean appearance and sits below new LED headlamps which reflect a similar look to the McLaren P1™. The more integrated front splitter contributes to increased levels of downforce, giving a greater level of steering feeling and confidence to the driver on turn-in, while also adding to the agility and the car’s handling balance. Unique door blades behind the front wheels direct air from the trailing edges of the front splitter, further benefiting front-end grip and vehicle balance.
The aerodynamic performance of the McLaren 650S is as efficient as the 12C, boasting the same drag coefficient figure, yet the air is being worked harder and more efficiently as it flows over, and through, the functional bodywork. At 150 mph, downforce levels are increased by 24 percent.
The exterior of the 650S is a combination of P1 and 12C. The car itself is instantly recognizable as a 12C, but the front end has been modeled after the new P1 supercar. McLaren claims the new body shape is just as aerodynamically efficient as the 12C, but at 150 mph, downforce has been increased by 24 percent.
The large intakes behind the doors are a sharp contrasting black in the photos, and they feed air to the radiators required to keep the turbo V-8 cool. The new split-spoke wheels are forged and are bespoke to the 650. The tires are also exclusive to the 650S and are branded MC1. They were developed by Pirelli specifically for the 650S.
We don’t have any photos of it yet, but the new 650S will also be unveiled in a Spider version at Geneva. Hard top styling or open roof motoring; the choice is yours.
2015 McLaren 650S Exterior Dimensions:
Don’t expect the interior to change too drastically from the cockpit of the 12C. McLaren hasn’t given us many details about the cabin, but it assures everyone that it won’t be a stripped out box with hard seats and metal floors. It says that the major amenities are intact, so Bluetooth, satellite radio and navigation are all standard equipment.
If you want to save some extra weight, you can choose fixed back racing seats made from carbon fiber. A rear backup camera and carbon-fiber trim work round out the current options list.
The engine of the new 650S is the same M838T turbocharged 3.8-liter V-8 that is found in the 12C and the P1. Power had been bumped from the 600PS (591 horsepower) of the 12C to 650PS (640 horsepower). Likewise, the only transmission option is the seven-speed dual clutch found in the rest of the McLaren lineup.
The 0-to-62 mph time takes just three seconds, hitting 124 mph takes 8.4 seconds and 186 mph comes in just 25.4 seconds. The 650S runs the quarter-mile in just 10.5 seconds at 139 mph, and the top speed checks in at 207 mph. McLaren has promised that all performance statistics will be revealed at Geneva.
At the corners, McLaren installed carbon-ceramic discs measuring 394 mm (15.5 inches) up front and 380 mm (15 inches) on the rear. Thanks to these awesome brakes, the 650S takes only 100 feet to stop from 62 mph, 404 feet to stop from 124 mph and 889 feet to stop from 189 mph.
Wrapped around the standard 19-by-8.5-inch wheels up front and 20-by-11-inch wheels out back are Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires.
