McLaren 675LT gets limited production run

// Posted in McLaren

This is the McLaren 675LT. In basic terms it’s the ‘longtail’ version of the 650S. Aside from the proud heritage of the longtail name to the McLaren brand, in this context longtail means the 675LT is 100kg lighter than the 650S, has more power, is more extreme and is, of course, a bit faster as […]

A decent day out indeed

Steve Sutcliffe and his mates from Autocar recently spent the day at Castle Combe with half a million quids worth of track toys. Fighting for their attention was the Ferrari 458 Speciale, the McLaren 650S and the Porsche 911 GT3. Which one do you think will be the fastest? And which one would you take […]

McLaren reveals special edition 650S

// Posted in McLaren

McLaren is rocking up to the Goodwood Festival of Speed with this black ops (say, that again) version of its 650S.

McLaren 650S gets the leaky treatment

// Posted in McLaren

Apparently the McLaren 650S has been presented to a private audience and these grainy leaked images are the dregs left for the common man like you and me. That’s until the 650S is revealed at Geneva next month. Based on the 12C, the 650S has, as its name suggests, an engine producing 650PS (478kW). It’s […]

McLaren inconsistent model naming regime has extended with official word its bringing a new model to the Geneva Motor Show called the 650S. Understood to refer to its peak horsepower the 650S will be a limited model sitting between the 12C and the P1. That still leaves the entry-level P13 in the pipeline too. Aside […]
