Introduction

What Car? says...

The McLaren 650S sits above the 570S in McLaren’s ranks as a rival to the Ferrari 488 and Lamborghini Huracán. There’s a coupé and a drop-top (Spider), but most buyers choose the latter. Given that it’s almost as brilliant to drive and delivers a bigger assault on your senses, it’s also the version we’d recommend.

The 650S is powered by a mighty 641bhp turbocharged V8 that delivers truly staggering straight-line speed. 0-62mph takes around 3.0 seconds, and the way the 650S corners has to be experienced to be believed – only a Ferrari 488 can claim to be more exciting in this price bracket. Perhaps most impressive, though, is how smoothly the McLaren rides.
