Exotic Car Of The Week - 018
This week in our Exotic Car Of The Week series we take a look at the lovely McLaren 650s Spider. The 650s Spider was announced in February 2014 at the Geneva motor show as a new model that contained 75% of the slightly older McLaren 570s with 25% new parts made specifically for the newer model. The 650s Spider is meticulously designed from the aerodynamics right down to the interior control placement and is an absolute pleasure to drive. It's not very often you get a Spider version of a supercar that almost completely matches its coupe counterpart in performance - with the 650s Spider you get exactly that. If you ever get the chance to drive one with Exotic Rentals & Retreats you should jump at the chance.
Looking to create some drama around town? Well, today may just be your lucky day as the McLaren 650S Spider is all about creating hype, drawing attention and being dramatically luxurious with its dihedral doors and impressive side-intakes. The pompous all-LED headlamps heighten the dramatic exterior while maintaining its truly spectacular performance. If you don’t get the chance to drive a McLaren 650s Spider with Exotic Rentals & Retreats then you may even want to consider getting a poster pin-up of its design – Yes, it is that good!
Gone are the days when you had to fish for crucial car controls as the 650S cabin is completely designed to be driver-oriented. From exquisitely hand-crafted material of the dashboard and seats to a race-bred technology center, the McLaren 650s provides just the right combination of enticement and luxury for drivers and passengers alike. Let yourself be drawn to the meticulously designed Alcantara leather interior which excels in offering superior comfort and driving experience simultaneously.
Performance and Drivetrain
The McLaren 650s Spider is nothing short of a beastly supercar boasting a 3.8-Liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that is capable of generating a top-speed and maximum power of 204mph (328km/h) and 650hp respectively. The 650s shares the same carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer chassis as the MP4-12C (designed by aerospace company Carbo Tech) and its power is pushed through the phenomenal Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres by a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
