Famous YouTuber and petrol head Shmee is getting ready to compete in this year’s Gumball 3000 rally and he has presented his ride of choice, his personal McLaren 650S Spider.
The Gumball 3000 rally has become a “must” for all wealthy petrol heads from across the globe and the newest entry to this year’s edition will be Shmee’s McLaren 650S Spider. The British drop-top supercar has received a special wrap for the Gumball 3000, applied to the Mantis Green original finish. Just like Deadmau5, Shmee has had his ride covered a similar wrap.
The 2015th edition of the Gumball 3000 will be starting in Stockholm, Norway, and it will go through Oslo, Copenhagen, Hamburg and Amsterdam. After this rout, all cars and drivers will board planes from Amsterdam to San Francisco, where they will be taking part in the final stage of the “rally”. This will include driving to Los Angeles, California, and then to Las Vegas, Nevada. The route will have 1,900 miles so expect a lot of surprises from the organizers.
Shmee has recently bought his McLaren 650S Spider and the supercar has been introduced in 2014, as a replacement for the MP4-12C. The model has two body styles available, the 2-door coupe and the 2-door roadster, both getting the rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power is coming from a 641 HP (478 kW) and 680 Nm (500 lb-ft) of torque 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine, allowing it to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3s and a top speed of 333 km/h (207 mph).
