The Mercedes MCLaren 650S Coupe is astonishingly fast. So this is it the Mercedes MCLaren 650S Coupe, not quite what it was supposed to be. McLaren posited it was a faster, more dramatic-looking and focused sister to the 12C. But 12C sales promptly collapsed, so it became the replacement. The V8 has new heads, pistons and cams plus bigger rads and a new exhaust. That means 650bhp and a socking 500lb ft of torque. The car has P1-type styling, a surprisingly modified chassis, carbon-ceramic brakes as standard, and carbon fibre doors. The amazingly supple ride of the 12C has been sacrificed slightly, as has the 12C’s subtle visual elegance, but it proves buyers wanted a harder feel and more dramatic looks. The 650S certainly delivers on all those scores. McLaren’s cars have remarkably good visibility and habitability. When you’re not pasting it, a motorway- or town-bound 650S is more stable and comfy than practically any sporting car. For all its pace and prowess, it’s an everyday supercar as well. There’s a successful and comprehensive new comms, nav and entertainment system for the 650S too. Also looking for MASERATI QUATTROPORTE GTS? Click here.
