McLaren Automotive had been on a hiatus after releasing their hit McLaren F1 in the Nineties, but everything changed from 2011 onwards. Starting with the MP4-12C, the Woking-based automaker embarked on a model blitz that continues to this day. One of those is the 650S, which was made between 2014 and 2017 as a sports car. If you know anything about McLaren, it's that even their sports cars are actually baby supercars in disguise. This 2016 McLaren 650S Spider is no different, and with just 5,100 miles on the clock, it can figuratively and literally take your breath away. Why not buy it and make every drive an exciting one?
The paint color on this 2016 McLaren 650S Spider is called Black Fire, and it certainly looks fiery, helped by the orange brake calipers behind silver alloy wheels. McLaren's unique design language features what's known as the 'swoosh', and you'll find it adorning the sides, as well as headlamp cluster shapes. In case you didn't know, significant portions of this car are made from carbon fiber, including its 165-pound monocoque tub. At the rear, you've got twin exhaust outlets flanked by blacked-out rear lamp clusters and an active rear spoiler. Being a Spider, this car features a three-piece carbon-fiber retractable roof that takes just 17 seconds to do its thing. Inside, an orange and black theme takes precedence as the doors swing upward to grant access. As you'd expect, this 2016 McLaren 650S Spider is a selfish pleasure best savored alone, but if you desire, you can take one passenger along for the ride of their lives. Climate control and infotainment functions are controlled via a touchscreen in the carbon-fiber-trimmed central rib separating the driver and passenger. The driver receives a flat-bottomed steering wheel with paddle shifters and faces a large, analog rev counter flanked by digital readouts for speed and other critical information. There's a small frunk or front trunk for some luggage.
This 2016 McLaren 650S Spider features a mid-mounted 3.8-liter V8 which may sound small, but it's helped by twin turbochargers. Hence, the power output sits at 641hp at 7,400rpm, with 502lb-ft available at 6,000rpm. Also, the engine can spin up to a spine-tingling 8,400rpm before the limiter kicks in. Drive goes to the rear wheels via a seven-speed Graziano twin-clutch transmission. Performance figures for the Spider sit at 3 seconds to sixty from rest, and a top speed of 204mph – with the roof up, of course.
