McLaren 650S: This Is More Of It

The first illicit images of the upcoming McLaren 650S dropped last night, and it looked just like somebody stitched the front half of a McLaren P1 to the back half of a McLaren 12C. These new pictures, first obtained by Autocar, confirm that.

McLaren is rumored to have conducted a very un-secret presentation for the media in London ahead of the car's debut at Geneva. Autocar says that McLaren confirmed that the 650S is not an entirely new car, but rather a hotted-up version of the 12C, which normally competes with the 562-horse Ferrari 458. Even still, the "650" in "650S" more than likely refers to the horsepower.

So is this the oft-rumored Ferrari F12 fighter, the McLaren P15? Probably not. But I will never, ever complain about a McLaren with over 600 horses. The more, the merrier.

Isn't the HP rating for the 12C 620 or 640 hp? Why is the bump to 650hp all that exciting to warrant a new model?

Not complaining, I think I'm exited about all and any new models from Macca. Just wondering if anyone is thinking the same thing.
