The inevitable happened! First McLaren 650S was totalled during a test drive on the roads in Singapore. Although we don’t have any details regarding the reason of the crash, the images tell us everything, that this car will never see the roads again.
For those who don’t know, McLaren introduced the all-new 650S Spider back in March at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show and the all-new vehicle was the replacement for the 12C Spider.
According to the British carmaker, the 650S Spider features a two-piece retractable hard top that can be raised or lowered in less than 17 seconds and at speeds of up to 30 km/h or 19 mph. Under the hood, the 1,370 kg (dry), convertible carries the M838T twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 650 hp and 678 Nm (500 lb-ft) of torque.
McLaren 650S Spider is able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.0 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.6 seconds and to 300 km/h in 300 km/h (186 mph) in 8.6 seconds. Top speed is limited at 329 km/h or 204 mph.
The twin-turbo V8 engine has a fuel consumption of 11.7 l/100 km (24.2 mpg) on the EU combined cycle and emits only 285 g/km of CO2. The vehicle you see in the photos features a Tarocco Orange paint finish and has a starting price of 212,250 GBP ($354,371 or 257,366 euros). P.S. Big thanks to Jim for the photos!
