McLaren 650S to make Mideast debut in Dubai
Dubai, March 24, 2014
McLaren Automotive is set to make its Middle East debut in Dubai from March 30.
Al Habtoor Motors, the McLaren Dubai retailer, will host a limited number of private viewings of the supercar, until April 3, said a statement.
Available in Coupé and Spider bodystyles from launch, the McLaren 650S joins the range as an additional model between the 12C and sold-out McLaren P1.
The 650S is the fastest, most engaging and best equipped series-production supercar yet from McLaren Automotive, said the statement.
In Coupé form, the 650S accelerates to 100km/h from rest in just three seconds, and can reach 200km/h in just 8.4 seconds.
The front-end design is inspired by the McLaren P1, showcasing a new family design language for the brand. The new look follows the McLaren design ethos of ‘form follows function,’ with the front bumper providing a dramatic, clean, appearance while the integrated front splitter contributes to increased levels of downforce, it said.
Ian Gorsuch, regional director, MEA, said: ‘The McLaren 650S represents 50 years of road and racing car know-how. Everything we have learnt from the 12C and the McLaren P1 has gone into this car, creating a car with the widest breadth of capabilities of any production supercar. We’re very excited to be showcasing our latest achievement for the first time in this region to our loyal customers in the UAE.’
“The 650S joins our supercar range only three years after the launch of the 12C – we are a fast-moving company that never rests, bringing new technology and thinking to our customers as soon as possible.”
The deliveries to customers of the McLaren 650S in the Middle East region will begin in September, added the statement. - TradeArabia News Service
