    The 650S is here

    The car is finally here! Really happy with how the specifications turned out. They are just doing some minor changes before the car will be ready for delivery. Smiley

    However, I will not be here for the next few weeks - so I will only be able to do a review at the end of the month. Murphy's law Smiley

    Don't worry. It's nothing drastic - just final finishing touches which the factory didn't offer Smiley

    Thanks for the kind words Smiley


    Re: The 650S is here

    Re: The 650S is here

    Congratulations, and snap ( see other 650S thread) !


    Re: The 650S is here

    Finally managed to get some mileage on the car and I must same I am very, very impressed! The car does suffer from more turbolag than on the 12C. Not a huge set back, but nothing will ever beat the response of a proper NA motor.

    Having said that, I am very impressed with all the other aspects of the car. The suspension is definitely stiffer than on the 12C, but it feels far more compliant over bumps and uneven surfaces. The steering feels tighter than the predecessor too.

    The power up at the top is crazy though! What astounds me is the level of grip they have been able to achieve on a RWD car with so much power. It's really very usable and doesn't squirm all over the place unlike some of the other cars.

    The visibility is also really good. One could easily use this as a daily driver. The new R camera also helps too. The Iris system is also vastly improved, still a little bit laggy here and there, but overall a nice setup.

    The steel brakes on the Mac are still the better of the two in my opinion. The CCB's on the 650 don't seem to have the same sense of urgency to stop. You really have to bury your foot on the pedal to get it to stop. Just another driving style I will have to adapt too.

    Enough talk, some pictures!


    Re: The 650S is here

    Congrats again. Nice photos. I find the rear camera freezes which is a pain - back in for a software upgrade whilst I'm on holiday! Agree on the brakes  - just different feel to other makes  - Ferrari's for instance is just that much more precise.


    Re: The 650S is here

    Thank you! Smiley I'm relieved to hear there is a software update for that! They mounted the camera a little low as well in my opinion.

    Not as easy to gauge distance.

    Enjoy the holiday mate!


    Re: The 650S is here

    Mike S:

    ...

    Enough talk, some pictures!

    Mike really knows us. 

    Congrats mike it looks amazing in that colour ! also looks like you went all out with the carbon, any more pics of that? The 12C was already praised for it's "comfortable" ride quality, so if the 650 can accomplish a more sporty feel while still being compliant on uneven terrain then it must be a great drive even at slow speeds. 

    Thanks for sharing. 


    Re: The 650S is here

    I love the color Mike, it's gorgeous! Lovely car. Better looking than the 12C and everybody says it's beautiful to drive.

    Please tell me you didn't spec those seats! Why not take the great proper bucket seats?

    Emmanuel - I will get more photos for you during the course of next week mate. I haven't used my DSLR in ages, this will be a good reason to bring it out.

    Futch - Thanks my friend! I'm really enjoying this car. I have almost got a thousand miles on it, which is an astonishing pace for me. It's just so usable! Let's not go there! In my defence, how many times have you also replaced one of your vehicles seats for the sports versions later? indecision

    J.Seven - Hahaha! Luckily that is just good old H2O
