Switzerland: McLaren stuns with 650S range

Top-end sports car manufacturer McLaren presented its latest creations, the 650S Coupe and Spider roadster, at the Geneva Motor Show on Wednesday.

The retractable hardtop convertible Spider boasts a single piece carbon fibre chassis that the designers say makes it unique among road-legal sports cars.

Sharing a 3.8-liter V8 engine with twin turbochargers with its 650S coupe stablemate, the Spider will make 0-60mph in three seconds and tops out at 204mph (329kph). The overall weight of the Spider is 1370kg dry (3,020lbs), only 40kg heavier than the coupe, which McLaren says makes it the lightest car in its class.

Carbon ceramic disc brakes sit behind a set of Pirelli P Zero Corsa racing tyres, allowing the cars to brake from 100kph to a full stop in just over 30m (101ft).
