McLaren will be bringing two models to the Marque 1 Supercar Event this August; the brand new 570S Coupé and the 641 bhp 650S – with the 650S being available for customer test drives. Scroll down and fill in your details to request a booking.
The 650S blends McLaren’s road and race car genes better than any other model in the range, delivering jaw-dropping pace with a standard of ride comfort perfectly suited to the role of a long distance cruiser.
It sits at the core of McLaren’s Super Series, a range topped by the recently launched 675LT, but don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s anything less than exceptionally talented.
Powered by the award-winning 3.8-litre twin-turbo M838T V8 engine, the 650S weighs just 1330kg (dry) and can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 3.0 seconds and 0-124 mph in just 8.4 seconds (8.6 seconds for the 650S Spider). A maximum speed of 207 mph (204 mph for the Spider) secures its place as one of the fastest supercars on sale today.
Available in both closed-coupé and Spider versions, the 650S is built around a carbon fibre MonoCell chassis, which needs no extra strengthening to provide the necessary rigidity or safety when developing a convertible. The performance and dynamics of both are therefore nigh on identical, meaning the McLaren 650S Spider offers all the enjoyment and driver appeal of its fixed-roof sibling.
The 570S is the first model in the Sports Series, a range of cars designed to bring the McLaren brand to a whole new audience.
It’s powered by the same family of engines as the 650S (3.8-litre twin turbo V8), but this time delivering 562bhp – still more than enough to reach 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, 124 mph in 9.5 seconds and a top speed of 204mph.
Priced from £143,250, the 570S will be joined by the £126,000 540C when it arrives in the UK at the end of 2017. The 570S Coupé, which made its UK show debut in June, will go on sale before the end of this year, but in the meantime is undergoing pre-production testing to ensure it meets the high standards expected of the McLaren brand.
McLaren personnel will be on hand during the day to talk about both models, and answer any questions about their design and engineering features. It’s a unique opportunity to learn about the cars and find out why McLaren is the fastest growing supercar brand with 1,649 vehicles sold in 2014.
