Mclaren 650s Design

What do you think about the front end? The rear end is pretty much a 12c. Which is not bad.. But the rear end of the P1 is much more favorable than the front

And the 650s seems to have gotten inspiration from the P1 in front and not so much in the rear.

Hi,
I think that the rear of the P1 is something amazing, but maybe McLaren chose to use a modified version of 12C's back (infact, the 650S' rear has a different rear bumper compared with 12C) because the different broadness maybe can makes the final effect not so good... The P1 has this "transparent" back to cool the engine.

Front end on the 650 resembles the p1 more than the rear and thats a good thing. The front end design is hard to change, meanwhile it's easy to rework the rear from model to model.

I like the body sculpting on the back of the 650S. It loses something at the back as far as the carbon fiber and that mesh. it feel that they could have done something to make it look a bit less disjointed. The rest of the vehicle is very fluid and then the back just kind of falls apart (not literally, just as far as the flow goes.)

maybe if they painted most of the rear in the same color as the rest of the body you might have something different to say?

I also think that it looks better in the dark when the taillights are illuminated. I can't seem to find a picture of it online though. Can anyone help me out?

No luck either, it will show up on this forum eventually.

All the Mclarens these days look better to me in black, 12C, 650, and of course the stunning P1!

I just can't do the 2 tone look. Black is very seamless which is what I like.

It is. What I would like to see are these new McLaren's in a single color. If it's white, make it ALL white even in the rear, but if need be....very little black, of course you'd want the diffiser to remain in the finish it's shown in above
