Miami, Florida (PRWEB) June 20, 2014
THE COLLECTION, Miami’s foremost luxury automotive dealership, announced that the all-new McLaren 650S has arrived in their Coral Gables showroom.
The 650S is McLaren’s fastest, most engaging, best equipped and most beautiful series-production supercar yet. Available as a dihedral door Coupé or retractable folding hardtop Spider, the McLaren 650S is redefining the high performance supercar segment, and has been designed and developed to provide the ultimate in driver engagement on the road and on the race track.
“The McLaren 650S embodies the unification of performance and refinement,” said Ken Gorin, President and CEO of THE COLLECTION. “The curvaceous design is dramatic, and the aggressive drive is exciting. It is the perfect evolution of the McLaren brand.”
Named after its twin-turbo 650PS power plant (641 hp) and packing 500 lb-ft of torque, the 2015 new McLaren breaks the mold. The ‘S’ stands for ‘Sport,’ underlining the focus and developments made to handling, transmission, drivability and engagement. The maximum power figure ensures the best power-to-weight ratio in its class, at 437 hp per ton. Performance and efficiency is also class leading: 0-62 mph acceleration takes only 3.0 seconds, and returning 24.2 mpg.
The 650S adopts the new family design language that was introduced in the McLaren P1™. More importantly, the look follows the McLaren design ethos of ‘form follows function,’ with the front bumper providing a dramatic, yet clean, appearance while the integrated front splitter contributes to increased levels of downforce. This improved aerodynamic performance offers a greater level of steering feeling and confidence to the driver on turn-in.
Despite the power and performance focus, the McLaren 650S boasts an extensive specification list with an optimized powertrain, braking and suspension systems, as well as a refined and luxuriously equipped cabin.
