Mclaren 650s vs MP4-12C vs P1



The P1 being the most extreme.. I wonder if the new 650s will have any thing trickled down from the P1. And I wonder what the 650 carrys over from the 4C

well 650S is a 12C with a barely mild update. Basically McLaren took the 12C and gave it some P1 touches. Notice how the front end it basically a P1's grafted on the front of a 12C. The hood remains identical to the 12C.

Profile really shows the similarities.



but the rear is where the two become indistinguishable..



As for trickle down, I know the 650S makes the P1's CF seats available...

I just wish more of the P1's design language was mixed into the 650S, but they do have to keep the P1 design a bit exclusive to it. If there's one thing they can do to the lower end models is add more curves.

Mr.Sullivan thanks for taking the time to put up the comparisons!

The 650s in terms of styling is a 12c and p1 merger in my opinion.

The front of a p1 and the back of a 12c.

I kind of would have liked it to be the other way around.

These guys have a crude comparison, although it is more data driven... http://www.zeperfs.com/en/match4502-5154.htm
