The 2015 McLaren 650S Sprint is finally out and the long anticipated wait for this vehicle is finally over. The fans have been able to get a glimpse of this car during the last Geneva Motor Show convention where it took center stage and absolutely stole the show. The car is a monster on the road and has magnificent specs. The vehicle’s power had to be reduced to 500 horsepower so it could have been FIA approved and deemed street safe, and is now available as a speedster and can be used for street drives. The vehicle has been considerably upgraded and given all the necessary spec upgrades which make it one of the fastest cars in its division. It does not only feature speed but good looks as well as you will be able to experience a wonderful design which already many fans of the McLaren vehicles find appealing.

Engine

Although still not official, but pretty much accurate, are the given specs for the vehicle. The 2015 McLaren 650S Sprint owes its speed to its twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-8 engine which is able to produce a power of 640 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. This will enable the new 2015 McLaren 650S Sprint to achieve a speed of from 0 to 60 mph in a matter of 2.9 seconds. Now that is astounding. The engine specs with the dual-clutch transmission with seven speeds offers unique calibration for the vehicle, which makes the overall engine specifications of this vehicle pretty great.

Exterior wise, the car greatly takes after the GT3 models. Although the 2015 McLaren 650S Sprint has many features which tie it with its predecessors the car has also a lot to offer on its own. The front part is all in all a standard design for the 650S models, but in this case we see a revised bonnet and a entirely new bumper design. The sides include additional louvers added which optimize air flow making the car sleeker and giving it less air resistance and more balance.
