McLaren has spilled the beans on the capabilities of its new 650S, a week on from its online unveiling.

If you need a reminder, the 650S is McLaren’s new mid-range hero, powered by a 478kW version of the 12C’s 3.8 litre turbo V8 engine.

Now, let’s get to it: 0-100km/h in 3.0 seconds, 0-200km/h in 8.4 seconds, quarter-mile (0-400m) in 10.5 seconds.

Keeping it in the McLaren stable, that gives the 650S a 0-100km/h sprint that falls just 0.2 seconds short of the hero P1 hypercar, while beating its 12C sibling by 0.1 seconds.

The 0-200km/h run that is a full second quicker than the legendary McLaren F1, while the quarter-mile time is also 0.6 seconds sharper than the F1 - and 0.1 seconds faster than the 12C.

Other stats for the 650S include a 30-metre stopping distance from 100km/h, and a 300-0km/h stopping distance of 270 metres.

And, for those moved by such figures, McLaren claims a combined-cycle fuel consumption rating of just 11.7 l/100km.

Good luck matching that.
