Thumbs up Full performance specs for the McLaren 650S

The full performance specs for the McLaren 650S were released today, and they do not disappoint. Let's dive in.

Power comes from a 3.8-liter twin turbo V8. This power plant produces 641 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. Acceleration is phenomenal -- the McLaren 650S goes from 0-60 mph in 3 seconds flat, and 0-124 mph in 8.4 seconds. It hits a standing quarter mile in a mere 10.5 seconds!

These numbers put the McLaren 650S on par with the Ferrari 458 Speciale.

0-60 gone in 3 seconds is amazing, good timing and with a 10.5 second quarter mile, at least we can get away from most of the Supra guys that will be picking on us

I wonder if those pirelli tires are the best possible tires to use to get the best possible times, anyone know of any better tires?

I wonder if Mclaren will ever go AWD.

does it bother anyone that the GTR can do 0-60 in 2.7 seconds yet it weighs a few boats?
