Known for its amazing track-oriented cars models, this company has always been one of the leaders in the car industry, at least when it comes to performance. Latest reports suggest the company is currently working on a completely new model, which will come as a successor of the amazing 650S, which was in production between 2014 and 2017. It looks like the new model will keep a familiar name, so we could talk about new-generation 2020 McLaren 650. It will get a completely new design, as well as a new engine that will provide even more impressive performances.
Models from this manufacturer have always been considered as crème de la crème among sports cars. This carmaker brings all of its experience from F1 and other racing competition to the production model. The new 2020 McLaren 650 won’t be an exception at all. Compared to the previous model, we don’t expect significant changes in terms of proportions, overall shape, and similar things. On the other side, we should see a completely new styling approach, which will include a lot of sharp angles. This company improves the aerodynamics of its vehicles on a daily basis, so expect to see a bunch of new shapes that will provide even better air flow.
Considering previous models from this company, we expect to see no surprises in this case. The 2020 McLaren 650 won’t be fooling around with cosmetical tricks. This is a pretty straightforward racing machine, so expect a track-oriented cockpit. Everything on this car will be dedicated to performances. Still, expect a dose of a style on the inside, top-quality materials and even a bunch of connectivity features, including vertically positioned touchscreen interface.
Engine and Specs
Another big novelty for the 2020 McLaren 650 should be a new engine. If we can rely on insider information, there is a new V8 to come. The previous version featured a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8, with a max power between 625 and 690 horsepower, depending on the version. The new model will get a bigger 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 unit, with even more power. Most likely, a max output will be higher even compared to the version that powers P1, which is good for about 725 hp. All in all, expect 0-60 time between 2.6 and 2.7 seconds, which will be better even compared to models like the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
2020 McLaren 650 Release Date and Price
The 2020 McLaren 650 could come already by the end of this year. When it comes to the price, we know for sure that the new model will be pretty expensive. Some reports suggest starting price of around $350,000, which is significantly higher compared to Lamborghini Huracan Performante, for example, which goes around $275,000.
