REV TO THE LIMIT
Right about now you can start to put your order in for the new McLaren 650S. Thank goodness the nice Chris Harris has been given one to test so you know what you're going to get. As you would expect from any Chris Harris video review, there is plenty of smoke and sideways action.
The first section of this video, while a little slow is really worth watching. McLaren actually takes you through all the differences between the 650S and the standard 12C. There reall is some rather interesting technical information about the car and the new technologies that have been incorporated into the 650S.
The 3.8 litre McLaren V8 gets a 25 hp boost and an extra 80 Nm of torque for a total output of 650 PS and 678 Nm of torque. From 0-100 km/h now takes just 3.0 seconds and 0-200 km/h (125 mph) only 8.4 seconds. It will hit a top speed of 333 km/h (207 mph) and a set of carbon ceramic brakes provide the extra stopping power.
