Ever since the concept of the latest McLaren 650 has been revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, the fans of such supercars have been keenly anticipating the arrival of this icon. According to some recent rumors, this high-performance sports beauty should be expected to hit the market as a 2020 McLaren 650 model, although this hasn’t been officially confirmed yet.
- a powerful sports car,
- true sports car experience,
- dynamic and race-inspired design
- lots of details still not confirmed.
The true fans and speed enthusiasts can mostly guess what the 2020 McLaren 650 will look like and they know that its dynamic appearance promises more than excellent performance. This powerful convertible will offer adrenaline and a true sports car experience. It will hit the showrooms as a two-door coupe that will be more attractive and modern than the predecessor. It will also be much more aggressive, especially in the front end where this topless beauty shows the traces of P1. Its long and race-inspired nose will only help this model improve its aerodynamics and therefore, overall performance. It has also been said that the carmaker should try to save as much weight as possible thanks to its use of lightweight materials such as aluminum and carbon fiber. While the front end comes longer and lower, the rear end will seem shorter and a bit raised. Therefore, the new 650 will probably stand on 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels. However, we are waiting for more information at the moment.
Inside the 2020 McLaren 650, the fans will find two sports bucket seats that won’t be as comfortable as it has been the case with some other models. However, the seats will offer stability and support, especially at those high speeds. The company will use high-quality materials inside, such as fine leather, but also some lightweight aluminum and carbon fiber. The steering wheel will also show some race-inspired design and you will find many other sporty elements. The driver will probably get a smaller information display in the instrument cluster and a larger touch-screen with the multimedia system in the center console.
Under the hood of the 2020 McLaren 650, you will probably find a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8. This engine should deliver the output of 641 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque, but we are waiting for more official information and numbers at the moment. Also, it would probably be paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
