McLaren has released a teaser photo of its latest addition to its range of groundbreaking supercars – the McLaren 650S. It’s set to be unveiled next month at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
McLaren says that their new model has been “designed and developed to offer the enthusiast driver the ultimate in luxury, engagement and excitement, as well as dramatic yet beautiful styling.”
The 650S sits between the MP4-12C and P1 in its lineup and says the new model incorporates the lessons from both of those supercars’ development. At the moment, McLaren isn’t sharing much details about its new sports car but the company promises to disclose spicy details in the weeks to come to create a buzz until March 4 when the car will be shown in Geneva.
Recent rumors suggest that the 650S will be powered by the company’s well-known twin-turbo 3.8-litre V8 engine which will probably develop 650hp based on the “650” designation. The 650S will be capable of running the 0-100 km/h sprint in less than four seconds en route to a maximum speed of around 298 km/h. The engine is going to work with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox hosted in a “pure driver’s car” that will be lighter and smaller than the 12C.
