McLaren 650S Performance Figures Revealed
As the first example of the McLaren 650S rolled off the line at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, McLaren has released performance numbers for the new sports car ahead of its global debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.
Powered by a twin turbo V8 engine that delivers 641 bhp, the latest addition to the McLaren range accelerates to 62mph from rest in 3.0 seconds, and can reach 124mph in 8.4 seconds. The standing quarter mile (400m) takes 10.5 seconds, and top speed is 207 mph.
This performance puts the latest model from McLaren a full second quicker than the McLaren F1 road car to 124mph, and 0.6 sec faster over the standing quarter mile, underlining its performance focus. This represents a sprint time to 124mph more than half a second quicker than the 12C, which continues in production.
McLaren claims the 650S returns 24.2 mpg (11.7 l/100 km) on the EU combined cycle, and a CO2 figure of 275 g/km.
