Every time you approach your 650S, you’ll feel the same tingle of excitement as when you first set eyes on it. Every panel, every surface, every detail has been painstakingly designed to take your breath away and enhance the thrill of the drive.
Now available in carbon fibre, the active Airbrake gives you total confidence to exploit the McLaren 650S’s astounding performance and dynamics. Brake heavily above 95kph and the McLaren 650S’s active Airbrake instantly deploys, meaning you can stop faster and brake even later on the racetrack. It also offsets front-end pitch and increases downforce under hard braking to maximise stability. In Sport and Track modes, the Airbrake will automatically adjust to create more downforce at speed and offers additional stability when you lift the throttle. In Aero mode, you’ll even feel the same thrill as our racing drivers when DRS (Drag Reduction System) activates, lowering the Airbrake to provide those last few mph as you race towards the finish line.
Just like our Formula 1 racers, every kilogram on the McLaren 650S has to justify its existence. It’s what makes our cars so exciting to drive. The McLaren 650S’s paintwork is no exception: our 3-stage, Formula 1-inspired paint technology ensures the colour, tint, lustre and finish is flawless, while keeping weight to an absolute minimum. Whether it’s a personal favourite, or you want to evoke racing cars from McLaren’s illustrious past, you’ll find the perfect colour for your McLaren 650S. The AkzoNobel paints are mixed by hand, applied by hand and finished by hand to exacting standards. Want something extra exclusive? Many of our Special and Elite paint finishes contain a higher level of metallic and pearlescent content. Using exclusive pigments and a greater holographic effect, these highly crafted finishes complement the car’s stunning design by accentuating every line, curve and contour of the body.
Not only do the McLaren 650S’s lightweight forged alloy wheels look stunning, they’re also incredibly strong and shed weight from the most beneficial place. That means they amplify the McLaren 650S’s breathtaking dynamics, improve its ride comfort and complement the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8’s mind-blowing performance.
They’re supplied with all new high-grip Pirelli P Zero™ Corsa System tyres developed in conjunction with McLaren. Stability is optimised for even faster cornering, improved traction and better braking.
Inspired by the McLaren P1™ and echoing the McLaren speed marque, the McLaren 650S features striking all-LED headlights with all functions – dipped- and full-beam, indicators, day-time running lamps – illuminated by LED technology. LED headlights are as bright as Xenon, but last the life of the vehicle and draw less current, saving fuel and CO2.
