In what we will undoubtably be one of the most eagerly anticipated displays at the Show, The London Yacht, Jet & Prestige Car Show are delighted to announce that McLaren Cars, one of the world’s premier super car brands, will be exhibiting at the event, through their McLaren London Dealership.
A sports car heritage that includes the McLaren F1 – acclaimed by many as the greatest ever made. Over forty-five years at the pinnacle of motorsport. Twelve FIA Formula One™ Drivers’ Championships, eight FIA Formula One™ Constructors’ Championships, and counting. Nearly 170 Formula One™ race victories, and counting. Three Indy 500 titles, and Le Mans at the first attempt. Over thirty years’ experience building carbon fibre chassis for road and race cars. McLaren designers, engineers and drivers have poured all of this experience and all of their passion into our range of sports cars.
The most thrilling supercars are usually the most compromised: their suspension is rock solid, road noise invades the cockpit and creature comforts are removed to reduce weight. The new McLaren 650S breaks the mould: it is sensational to drive yet generously equipped and extraordinarily comfortable. It’s the world’s ultimate luxury sports car.
THE MCLAREN 650S
Like every McLaren road car, carbon fibre sits at the core of the 650S. Stiff, strong and incredibly light, the MonoCell provides a solid platform for optimum chassis dynamics, ultra-responsive steering and exceptional ride comfort. Three adaptive chassis modes specially tuned for the 650S exploit this duality: select Track and you’ll feel hardwired to the road surface; switch to Normal and you’ll be almost entirely isolated from it.
Positioned behind you for optimum weight distribution and thrilling dynamics, the acclaimed M838T engine combines 3.8 litres and twin-turbocharging technology to produce an astonishing 650PS at 7250rpm, while 95% of its 678Nm is spread from 3000-7000rpm. That means the 650S revs like a racing car but retains low-speed flexibility.
This remarkable engine sends its power to the 650S’s rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox with near instantaneous gearshifts. Pull the rocker shift paddle at full throttle and a new ‘inertia push’ function harnesses the engine’s torque for a feeling of positive acceleration throughout the shift. Change gear at part throttle and a fuel-cut punctuates the transition, adding an audible crispness. Whereas the Automatic mode ensures silky smooth shifts whatever your speed.
Come and experience the McLaren 650S for yourself at The London Yacht, Jet & Prestige Car Show this April!.
