McLaren Automotive has announced that the McLaren 650S, which is the latest model to join the range will make its Middle East debut in Dubai from 30 March – 3 April, 2014. It will be available for viewing by invitation only and McLaren Dubai retailer, Al Habtoor Motors, will be hosting a limited number of private viewings of the supercar during this time.
The McLaren 650S which was available in Coupé and Spider bodystyles from launch, joins the range as an additional model between the 12C and sold-out McLaren P1. The 650S is the fastest, most engaging, best equipped and most beautiful series-production supercar yet from McLaren Automotive.
The 650S accelerates to 100km/h (62mph) from rest in just 3.0 seconds, and can reach 200km/h (124mph) in just 8.4 seconds, making it a full second quicker than the iconic McLaren F1 road car to 200 km/h underlining its performance focus.
the new look of the McLaren 650S 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. The front-end design is inspired by the McLaren P1 and exhibits a new family design language for the brand.
Ian Gorsuch, Regional Director for Middle East and Africa says “The McLaren 650S represents 50 years of road and racing car know-how. Everything we’ve learnt from the 12C and the McLaren P1™ has gone into this car, creating a car with the widest breadth of capabilities of any production supercar. It’s also a new benchmark in pure driving excitement, and we’re very excited to be showcasing our latest achievement for the first time in this region to our loyal customers in the United Arab Emirates. This is a proud occasion for all of us at McLaren Automotive as we continue to make great strides forward in our development of innovative technology. The 650S joins our supercar range only three years after the launch of the 12C – we are a fast-moving company that never rests, bringing new technology and thinking to our customers as soon as possible.”
The McLaren 650S deliveries to customers will begin in September 2014.
