Unveiled earlier this year at the Geneva Auto Show before being tuned for the racetrack, McLaren‘s 650S is the latest addition to the British supercar manufacturer’s stable. An enhanced version of the MP4-12C, the 650S–highlighted here in Spider form–shares its predecessor’s carbon fiber composite chassis and features advanced aerodynamics and uber-lightweight construction for its gorgeous exterior. Under the hood sits a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8–capable of 641 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque–that sees its power transferred to the wheels by way of a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. All of this means the updated MP4-12C can hit a top speed of 207 mph while accelerating from 0 to 62 mph in just three seconds. Those interested can get an in-depth breakdown of the 650S Spider online and take a closer look at Marcel Lech‘s photos of the vehicle here.

Both the Spider and Coupe editions of the McLaren 650S are now available starting at $320,000 USD.
