McLaren’s high-powered 650S coupe got a track-ready GT3 update back in 2014 and now the racer is back with a brand new look for 2016. Set for a debut at next month’s Geneva Motor Show, the vehicle is highlighted by a modified body design — weighing 2,733 lbs — while carrying over the biturbo 3.8-liter V8 engine and six-speed sequential gearbox of the previous design (now rated at about 500 horsepower given the restrictions of the FIA GT3 regulations).
