Draped in an exotic Tarocco Orange, this 2016 McLaren 650S Spider exudes elegance and pure performance with its sleek lines and ubiquitous front. It sits on a set of OEM lightweight 5-spoke forged wheels with Pirelli P Zero rubber. Stopping power is courtesy of all-around carbon ceramic brakes with polished calipers with a tire pressure monitoring system. The name of the game is carbon fiber, with the rear bumper, side panels, door blades, splitter, side panels and mirror casings, all made from the sturdy and lightweight material that supercar makers turn to for that ideal blend of strength and lightness. The interior of the 650S is a full leather affair with a carbon fiber interior upgrade, proving that modern supercars can be comfortably and even luxurious. The dashboard has a contrast stitch in orange. Providing ultimate comfort regardless of if you are cruising or hustling are electric and heated memory seats, with a McLaren branded floor mat set.
