McLaren lifted the curtain on its new 650S last month at the Geneva Motor Show and temporarily shelved the production of 12C to focus on 650S’ production at full capacity. But now, a surprising letter from McLaren Automotive CEO Mike Flewitt showed up at the existing 12C owners’ doorsteps that said “we have decided to cease [production of the 12C] in light of the success of the 650S.”
British sportscar maker, McLaren revealed the official tech-specs of their latest Ferrari rivaling sports car, 650S and they are much better than expected. With just a 50PS jump in power, McLaren has managed to achieve outstanding performance figures with the 650S, as compared to the MP4-12C, on which the former is based.
McLaren Automotive will return to the International Geneva Motor Show this year with its fastest, most engaging, best equipped and most beautiful series-production supercar yet. The McLaren 650S joins the range as an additional model alongside the 12C and sold-out McLaren P1™, and learns from both models as well as 50 years of competing in the highest levels of motorsport.
Based on the McLaren MP4-12C, the McLaren 650S will make it’s global premiere at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. But, prior to that, official photos of the car have been leaked online. And that’s not all. A walk-around video of the McLaren 650S is also now online.
Geneva Motor Show just got a wee bit more exciting with McLaren announcing its 650S supercar reveal. Designed and developed to offer the enthusiast driver a one stop shop in luxury, engagement and excitement, it all comes together for McLaren Automotve in this dramatic yet beautiful styling.
