McLaren 650S

Η McLaren ανακοίνωσε σήμερα πως στην έκθεση της Γενεύης θα παρουσιάσει την McLaren 650S, η οποία όπως αναφέρουν οι Βρετανοί “σχεδιάστηκε και αναπτύχθηκε για να προσφέρει στον οδηγό ενθουσιώδη και απόλυτη περιπέτεια, και θα τοποθετηθεί ανάμεσα στην MP4-12C και την P1.

Θα τροφοδοτείται από τον V8 3,8-λίτρων twin-turbo κινητήρα ο οποίος λογικά θα παράγει 650 άλογα και θα συνδυάζεται με ένα επτατάχυτο αυτόματο κιβώτιο.

Λογικά θα πρόκειται είτε για τον αντίπαλο της Ferrari 458 Speciale είτε για το P15. Θα παρουσιαστεί επίσημα στις 4 του Μάρτη και περισσότερες λεπτομέρειες θα μάθουμε γι’αυτό μέσα στις επόμενες ημέρες.
