What’s the only thing cooler than auto racing? Auto racing in the 1960s and ‘70s, that’s what. And that era of Can-Am racing produced some of the most memorable events and cars the world has ever seen. Now McLaren has a 650S that salutes this era, and I want one.
There’s the photo of us getting gas in Ojai yesterday while making our trek to Pebble Beach. We freaked out a ton of kids and onlookers with our collection of amazing (borrowed cars). If you live between Carmel and anywhere else, just walk out and look at the roads.
I know it’s amazing and doesn't make any sense, but I don’t like the way it came to be. Most will disagree with me, and maybe they're right.
One of these cars is the McLaren 650S, which came out last year. The other one is the brand-new, 570S, meant to compete with the likes of the Porsche 911 and the Audi R8. Which one is which?
What happens when you have an automaker that learns about going fast by winning races on one of the world's greatest stages? You wind up with truly superior road-going cars, and you're obviously talking about McLaren.
What would you do if you were offered a McLaren 650S Spider — a convertible, mid-engine sports car with stunning looks, 641 horsepower, a curb weight of about 3,000 pounds, and the ability to hit 60 mph from a standstill in three seconds — but you could only drive it 250 miles?
If you pay nearly $312,000 for a car, it had better be pretty special, right? Fortunately, the McLaren 650S Spider has special in spades. Besides its insane turbo power and glorious handling, a lot of that specialness is in the little details. Here are some of my favorites.
My experience with the 2015 McLaren 650S Spider is limited by both time and mileage, but I'm trying to get the most out of it while I have it. I have found it to be a shockingly civilized, comfortable and livable sports car when you don't want to drive like a crazy person. I even turned it into my grocery getter!
I love the McLaren 650S. You love the McLaren 650S. Inevitably, you want to know what it's like to race said McLaren 650S. We've got the member of the K-PAX/Flying Lizard Motorsports Pirelli World Challenge team who's been driving the 650S the longest to answer all your questions right now. Go!
Welcome to Weekend Wallpaper, this time we have for your perusal a McLaren 650S coupe. Right now, this car is sitting on display in some kind of teal blue vinyl wrap (sell this thing to deadmau5? McLarnyan?), but I much prefer its original "Storm Gray" as captured by reader Evan Wawrzyniak.
McLaren's latest track toy has been confirmed to race later on in the NARRA US GT series, the SCCA GT Championship and the UAE GT series.
If you're a frequent Uber user in Toronto, keep your eyes pealed for a McLaren 650S and a smiling mouse head. Deadmau5 is officially on the Uber X payroll and he started giving rides this week.
We see it every day: cars pretending that they have bigger grilles than they really do.
If you're more interested in weekend track days than gentlemen racing, McLaren has just the tool for you. It's the 650S Sprint, and it takes all the great bits from its GT3 sibling, and pares it down to just the right amount of nutty.
Just look at it, it's great, isn't it? This will be at Pebble Beach from McLaren Special Operations, along with a blue 650S. Oh, and the 986 horsepower, ultra-limited McLaren P1 GTR, of course.
I recently had the opportunity to drive the new McLaren 650S on a racetrack. Here's basically what happened: I put on a helmet, sat down in the car, strapped myself in, and spent the next 15 minutes silently praying I wouldn't hit anything. I also stole a McLaren headsock.
Oh, you have a McLaren 650S Spider? How nice for you, I suppose. But for those of us who aren't on food stamps, meet the McLaren Special Operations 650S Spider. You can't even handle how bespoke it is.
McLaren's entry-level supercar will go on sale in September 2015, aimed against the most powerful Porsche 911s, the Audi R8 V10 and the Ferrari California. Here's what we know so far.
