    Late last week, McLaren announced it will be bringing a new model to the Geneva Motor Show. Called the 650S, it's set to slot in between the 12C and P1 in Woking's supercar range. But before McLaren gets to unveil the new model, the first batch of photos – as well as a video walkaround – have leaked online.

    What we seem to be looking at is an MP4-12C with revised styling to more closely resemble the P1. Which is a good thing, because to most eyes, the P1 is a far better-looking car than the 12C, whose appearance – finalized before design director Frank Stephenson arrived on the scene – has oft been derided as derivative. The 650S also features an updated interior, but best of all, it's said to pack more power: the name hints at a 650 metric horsepower (641 hp) output from what we can assume to be the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 that powers the 12C (which currently offers 616 hp) and the P1 (727 hp before the 176 hp electric motor comes into play).

  2. Looks way too similar to the MP4-12C to have all three in the lineup while so closely matched performance wise. Unless maybe they're just waiting to sell off however many units of the baby McLaren so that they can go back to the 2 model range with the 650S & P1
     
  3. Well two of the predicted models for the future had been a higher performance variant of the 12C, and a totally new car positioned above the 12C. Pretty easy to see that this is the first of those. I'd imagine it will pan out as you said, with this model totally replacing the 12C eventually.
     
  4. The All New McLaren P1: The brand new P1 has been revealed several weeks ago at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show. They merely built 375 models and each and every of them has got either already been sold already or perhaps secured by deposit. P1 is definitely an remarkable car. Sometimes it can go from 0 to 62 miles per hour in mere 2.8 seconds and possesses a top speed limit of 217 mph. The outside of the car is bold plus it certainly stands out from other cars. The interior is additionally very modern as well as confortable plus it was made for stylish as well as nonconformist people. It's not at all likely to let you down.

  7. I think I still like the Hurcan lambo
     
  8.  
  9. the 458 looks more wild than the Huracan

    maybe in another 10 years it will look like a Lambo
     
  10. ugly as #$%#
     
  11. Mclaren marketing department is shit. They don't release their supposed record ring time for 'safety reasons' and now they try and pass off the 12C-S as a whole new model. They make great cars, but they can't market for shit.
     
  12. This sounds about right.

    McLaren 650S Goes 0-60 in Under Three Seconds

    British exotic car builder McLaren just announced technical details for its new 650S supercar.

    The familiar 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 makes 650 metric horsepower (641 hp) at 7,250 rpm and 506 lb-ft of torque at 6,00 rpm, which helps it rocket from 0-62 mph (100km/h) in a scant three seconds. That power is sent through a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox to the rear wheels.

    McLaren-650S-03It will reach 124 mph in only 8.4 with a top speed of 207 mph. For perspective, that means this is not only faster than the 12C it sits above, but also the vaunted F1 supercar.

    McLaren plans to sell the car as both a coupe and convertible from launch. Presumably, the open-top models will use roof mechanics similar to the 12C with a hard panel that tucks away. Those brakes will screech the car to a stop from 62 mph in 100 feet, from 124 mph in 404 feet and from 186 mph in 889.

    Other noteworthy performance pieces include carbon ceramic brakes sitting behind unique alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires.

    McLaren-650S-cabinWhile the company stressed today that its car is meant to perform on par with “stripped out road racers,” it also underscored the effort it put into making the 650S a comfortable car to sit in. It offers Bluetooth pairing for your phone, navigation, satellite radio and surfaces trimmed in Alcantara. Optional fixed carbon fiber racing seats are available as are a rear-view camera, power adjusting steering column and plenty of carbon fiber add-ons if you want them.

    The car comes with four powertrain modes: normal, winter, sport and track. Excluding “winter” mode, the same settings are also available for chassis adjustments.

    McLaren will officially debut the car in Geneva next week and hasn’t said when it will officially launch or how much the car will cost.

    0-60 bullshit. Its 0-62mph, 0-100kmh is all that matters. Im also pretty sure a regular 12C can hit 100kmh in 3.0seconds or less anyway (there are plenty of youtube vbox videos showing this), so Im guessing this will be a fair bit faster than they let on. It'll probably match the p1 0-100kmh.
