Following a comprehensive leak last weekend, McLaren has revealed online the 650S which will be presented to the public on March 4 at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

There aren't a lot to talk about in terms of design as the 650S looks essentially like the 12C but with the front fascia taken from the sold-out P1. The mid-range McLaren has received the "650" lettering as its 3.8-liter V8 twin-turbo engine produces 650 HP (478 kW) while the "S" stands for "Sport". Performance figures will be disclosed prior to the car's Geneva launch but McLaren has already announced the 650S will be faster than the 12C so it will be a more appropiate adversary for the Ferrari 458 Speciale.

The vehicle rides on fresh five-spoke lightweight forged alloy wheels wrapped around in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires specially developed for this model. Other small changes include door blades behind the front wheels which generate more downforce, helping the new model provide an additional 24 percent of downforce at 150 mph (241 km/h) compared to the 12C.

The McLaren 650S will be available in coupe and Spider body styles from this spring.
