McLaren 650S Launch and 'Need for Speed' Premiere

Open-top McLaren 650S Spider makes its Hong Kong Debut

  • Follow closely with the Geneva International Motor Show, new McLaren 650S Spider makes its debut in Hong Kong
  • New McLaren 650S Spider: 0-100km/h (62 mph) takes 3.0 seconds, 0-200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.6 seconds
  • No reduction in torsional strength due to unique carbon fibre MonoCell chassis; similar weight, too
  • Two piece roof can be raised or lowered in less than 17 seconds on the move at speeds up to 30 km/h (19 mph)

Hong Kong - McLaren Hong Kong is proudly announced that the convertible version of McLaren Automotive’s latest model, the McLaren 650S Spider is brought to local audience in Hong Kong and to be unveiled at the ‘Need for Speed’ Gala Premiere in The Metroplex, Kowloon Bay. New McLaren 650S Spider has just made its global debut at the 84th International Geneva Motor Show on 4 March 2014.

Mr Max Cheng, General Manager of McLaren Hong Kong says, “We are honoured to join the ‘Need for Speed’ Gala Premiere at a brand-new cinema complex, The Metroplex today. ‘Need for Speed’ is long-waiting race car movie to all racing enthusiasts, it brings dramatic motions and racing excitements onto the big screen.”

“Like the featured McLaren P1™ in this movie, the new McLaren 650S Spider demonstrates ultimate driving performance on the road and track.  This is a real multi-function super sports car which dials up the performance and driver’s engagement.”

The new McLaren 650S Spider is uncovered by Mr Peter Goh, Managing Director of Sime Darby Hong Kong Motor Group and McLaren’s honourable guest, Mr Thomas Wu, Managing Director of Hopewell Holdings Limited. “This is our honour to bring the new and surprising McLaren 650S Spider to Hong Kong just in a week after its global debut.  It is proven that Hong Kong is a significant market of the brand in Asia-Pacific region.” says, Mr Peter Goh.

“We have received overwhelming responses from customers and media about the new McLaren 650S. It combines spectacular characteristics of the 12C and McLaren P1™ which both have been recorded outstanding results in Hong Kong last year. We look forward to the customers’ feedback that is the key to bring us into the next successful year.”

New McLaren 650S is a no compromise open-top high performance sports car offering the same performance, handling and driver enjoyment, with the addition of a two-piece retractable hard top. The latest model is shown in Tarocco Orange, a new addition to the McLaren colour collection, developed with technology partner AkzoNobel.

The McLaren 650S Spider is mechanically identical to the 650S Coupé and is fitted with the unique McLaren M838T twin turbo V8 engine, producing 650PS (641 bhp) and 678 Nm (500 lb ft). This means a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) sprint of 3.0 seconds, identical to the Coupé, and 200 km/h (124 mph) is reached in 8.6 seconds, only 0.2 seconds shy of the fixed-head model. Maximum speed is 329 km/h mph (204 mph). Fuel consumption and emissions remain the same for the 650S Spider, returning 24.2 mpg (11.7 l/100km) on the EU combined cycle and 275 g/km.

Most competitors do not offer high performance iterations as convertibles due to the compromises that invariably plague open-roof cars. These models will be heavier and have substantially less torsional rigidity, to the detriment of handling and ride.

The carbon fibre MonoCell chassis at the heart of the McLaren 650S requires no additional strengthening or reinforcing in open-top guise, and gives the 650S Spider identical handling and ride, and virtually identical straight-line performance figures. The overall weight of the 650S Spider is 1370 kg (dry), an increase of only 40 kg over the Coupé, with this additional mass coming from the Retractable Hard Top and roof mechanism, and is less than any other car in its class.

The two-piece Retractable Hard Top can be automatically raised or lower in less than 17 seconds, and can be activated while stationary or at any speed up to 30km/h (19mph).

As with the 12C Spider, the 650S Spider uses a heated glass rear window, operating independently of the roof. With the roof down, the rear window acts as a wind deflector, reducing cabin buffeting. Roof up, the rear screen can be lowered to allow more engine noise – and driving drama – into the cabin, and for a semi-open top driving experience even when it is raining. When down, the roof is stowed beneath a body-coloured hard tonneau cover incorporated in the twin rear buttresses. With the roof raised, the area beneath the tonneau cover can be used as additional luggage space.

Rather than being a stripped out road racer, the 650S Coupé and 650 Spider models offer a high level of luxury equipment. Optional carbon ceramic brakes sit behind unique ‘650’ lightweight alloy wheels shod with selected Pirelli P Zero™ Corsa tyres. IRIS satellite navigation with Bluetooth telephony, wireless tethering, audio streaming and voice control are all fitted as standard, and the cabin can be applied a fully trimmed Alcantara interior.

McLaren 650S Coupe and Spider’s suggested retail price in Hong Kong is HK$4,378,000 and HK$4,828,000 respectively. First delivery is expected in Q2 2014.
