McLaren 650S pricing and performance specs revealed, hits 62 mph in 3s

McLaren has disclosed pricing and performance specs concerning its new mid-range 650S model.

Packing a 650 HP (478 kW) punch from a V8 3.8-liter twin-turbo engine, the McLaren 650S coupe needs just three seconds to do 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) and will cover the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) journey in 8.4 seconds. Hitting 186 mph (300 km/h) from a standstill takes 25.4 seconds en route to a top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h).

McLaren mentions the 650S is one second quicker than the legendary F1 when it comes down to the 0-124 mph run while in the standing mile is 0.6 seconds quicker as it can do it in 10.5 seconds at 139 mph (224 km/h). Interestingly, the British marque refers to the 650S as being "faster than rival stripped out road racers" while at the same time offering "far superior comfort, refinement and equipment."

These numbers are attainable if you are willing to pay at least 195,250 GBP for the coupe. Spider's performance figures have not been released but we do know the model costs 215,250 GBP. McLaren says the 650S coupe can return 20.1 mpg US (24.2 mpg UK or 11.7 liters / 100 km) with corresponding CO2 emissions of 275 g/km.

Sales of the McLaren 650S are scheduled to commence later this year, following the car's public debut next week in Geneva.
