The new McLaren 650S order book has opened and press drives have been taking place, Chris Harris was amongst the first to get behind the wheel of the latest McLaren.
As usual there is plenty of smoke and sideways action but also some rather interesting technical information about the car and the new technologies that the British marque have incorporated into the 650S.
The 3.8 litre McLaren V8 gets a 25 hp boost and an extra 80 Nm of torque for a total output of 650 PS and 678 Nm of torque. From 0-100 km/h now takes just 3.0 seconds and 0-200 km/h (125 mph) only 8.4 seconds. It will hit a top speed of 333 km/h (207 mph) and a set of carbon ceramic brakes provide the extra stopping power.
If you are a fan of the 650S be sure to check out all the details and images from the launch event that McLaren invited GTspirit to.
