Motor Trend Tests the 650S Spider

Naturally they loved it..

The 650S Spyder takes longer to raise the hardtop (about 17 seconds) than to sprint to 60 mph, stop from 60 mph (2.5 seconds), and run the quarter mile, combined.
Hows that for a stat..

Now they just need to work on that lag!

The power was superb. Nearly 650 horses are addictive and spoil the driver for any less. It was a no-fear accelerator because the McLaren put down power well, a fine quality in something with this potential. To get this kind of juice from 3.8 liters requires a lot of boost pressure. With revs up on track, response is immediate, with a massive surge of torque in the upper midrange. On the street, lag is noticeable. But when that boost avalanches down, it'll rock your highway world. The sweet and smart SSG helps both. McLaren has successfully moderated the onslaught, but when the twin turbos come to life, it's a cannon shot. Irresistible.
