[VIDEO] Get a closer look at the McLaren 650S

The British based automaker McLaren has recently released a brand new video with the recently unveiled 650S, which is highlighting the supercar shown in Geneva.

Originally unveiled during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, in both its body styles, coupe and roadster, the McLaren 650S is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the car company releasing a new video, which is showing the company’s product manager, Jamie Corstorphine, talk about the supercar.

The McLaren 650S and 650S Spider have a front fascia similar to the one of the P1 hybrid supercar and a rear end similar to the one of the MP4-12C. When compared to the 12C, the 650S is producing 24 percent more downforce at 150 mph, with no extra drag, according to the car manufacturer. The 650S has a unique set of lightweight five-spoke alloy wheels, with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires and carbon ceramic brakes.

As far as the engine goes, the 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 unit, used on the MP4-12C and on the P1, is also available on the 650S and 650S Spider too. The powertrain has been now rated at 651 HP (478 kW) and 678 Nm (500 lb-ft) of torque, which is enough to allow it a top speed of almost 330 km/h. The 650S Spider weighs just 40 kg more than its solid roof brother.
