McLaren Pre-Owned April Special: 2015 McLaren 650S Spider
April Special: $192,550
The McLaren 650S was the follow-up to the debut road car of McLaren Automotive, meaning the sample size in which to use for improvement was incredibly small. But the original MP4-12C was already technologically innovative and refined, and immediately established itself as a benchmark in the segment. So from that, the 650S already had a capable template in which to use, and it took off with it.
The 650S started the trend of McLaren naming its supercars based on power output, and the M838T twin-turbo V8 delivers 650 PS (641 hp), a generous boost over the outgoing 12C’s 625 PS (616 hp). To put that in perspective, the 650S tackles the quarter mile more than half a second quicker than the heralded McLaren F1, showing the decades of progress funneled into the modern line of supercars. All the while, the 650S still turns in more than 20 mpg for class-leading efficiency to match. It truly looks to avoid compromise in all phases of its development. Whereas many performance convertibles require additional structural rigidity, the carbon fiber MonoCell chassis underpinning the 650S is in need of none of that. Any increase in weight is simply attributed to the retractable folding hard top mechanism, allowing it to maintain the same acceleration and efficiency standards set by the coupe and achieve a best-in-class weigh-in. It even has the added convenience of being operable up to 19 mph, and features extra storage space when up, and a small rear window that acts as a wind deflector or a portal for additional exhaust noise, depending on the current roof configuration.
Our example is finished in Supernova Silver and has covered just under 12,000 miles.
