    McLaren 650s first impressions

    As I have bought my dreamcar I have no time to write a short review.

    I promise I will do it later but for now here are some pictures. The only thing I can say, that this car is far more then any Porsche I have owned or driven. It is simple a super sportscar one league above my Porsche GT3 RS.

    How will you choose which one to drive ? If the Mc is so much nicer, I imagine the RS with collect dust ?

      GT3 RS 650 S
    engine power 500 hp 650 hp
    power delivery linear, under 5000 rpm the power delivery is poor explosive like 991 turbo, under 3000 rpm poor
    shifting feels more sportier, due to longer power interruption feels smoother, less power interruption
    sound more screaming, louder in high frequencies, not for long distance stronger, more lower frequencies, you can drive longer distance before anoying
    braking same same
    exteriour  more like race car more exotic
    interiour Porsche convetional more exotic, better carbon parts, lot of Alcantara
    handling very good did not test it 
    onboard communication old PCM IRIS not Audi or BMW but much better then PCM
    seating position Porsche like you are near the front axle, pretty cool position
    comfort driving bad very good
    sports driving very good very good

    Re: McLaren 650s first impressions

    It is hard to say what benefits the Porsche has. Lower consumption. Lower price. Easier to find a parking slot. Getting in and out.

    The McLaren drives easier, smoother, faster and offers more comfort. With that car you can sit in and drive 500 km for a vacation. With the GT3RS no chance.The car offers such an incredible chassis at the same time so much comfort and no body roll regardless how fast you turn in.

    Aldo :

    About one month ago I drove 600 km one day to go to Imola, drove the whole next day on the track, and back the 3rd day , 600 km again in one go .

    Two weeks ago I drove 620 km to go to Le Castellet , drove a full day, and back the 3rd, 620 km again .

    Next week I will do 640 km to get to Mugello , drive a full day, and back the next one 

    ..... all in my RS Smiley  It is much more comfortable on long runs then my Carrera S Smiley

    Re: McLaren 650s first impressions

    Many thanks for these great shots of your new beast Aldo - I'm not sure those turbo wheels are my favourite McL wheel (though they do look very light...), but love the orange belts + calipers.   Please feel free to keep adding to this thread as you get more seat time in this special car - we all know that real impressions of a car this complex take more than a few days.... kiss 

    And I, for one, see no issue with owning BOTH a top example of the "traditional Porsche way" car, along with a top example of "modern exotic technology" car - they surely serve very different driving enjoyment parts of your brain!

    Re: McLaren 650s first impressions

    I think the GT3 RS and the 650S Spider are a very good match.

    Similar to my R8/GTS Cab match, they complement each other, they do not replace each other.

    It's a very nice car but the rear end looks dissapoint. 675LT is the best looking McLaren.

    No stopwatch has been able to time the GT4 due to spacetime bending speed.

    Yes! the rear of 675 lt is fantastic - the 675 lt is fantastic - and yes the 675 lt is the best looking McLaren - but is sold out and now very expensive

    Bluelines speed no GPS-system can on the upper hemishpere measure Smiley

    8:10.921 is Kevin Estre's qualifying time in a 12C GT3 that earned him the pole at the 2014 Nurburgring 24-hour race. I think that it is still the lap record for the full 25,378-meter race course.

    Great pics, great summary, great cars...I think RC is right, owning both a GT3 RS and a 650 S Spider is a fantastic combination! 


    Re: McLaren 650s first impressions

    I love your short hand summary. It gives me an accurate picture of the differences between cars.kiss
