Mclaren 650s Headlights

What do we know about the headlights on the 650s

They look visually similar to the P1. LED DRLs and xenons are they?

Might even be laser headlights. I know BMW is the first to officially say they have them but it's possible McLaren included them here.

I feel like we would have heard more if the 650S had laser headlights. I would think that the headlights are LED and not xenon. For the money you're paying they'd better be.

I would assume its LED DRLs with xenon projectors as main lights. But can't find any info.

That is true, but at the same time I haven't heard much about it so far.

That's crazy! I wonder why they cost so much for just one. Is it just the shape of them being so unique? They must be LEDs or laser lights to cost that much money!

Your guess is as good as mine.. why do orange, yellow, or red seat belts cost $3442? The realities of 'supercar' pricing, I suppose.

Exclusivity. Why does Mercedes sell the CLA for the cost of two 650S headlamps? So everyone can have one.

Its branding product helps too
