McLaren 650S hits Monza during private event [video]

Deep V8 tone

During the “Pure McLaren Driving Experience” private trackday at Monza race track, the British manufacturer brought together a selection of McLaren 650S’.

YouTuber NM2255, an Italian car lover with a big passion for filming, spotted the new supercar starting up its 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 engine and doing some revs, accelerations and fly-bys on the circuit.

Made to "provide the ultimate in driver engagement on the road and on the race track," the 650S was presented during the Geneva Motor Show back in March. The coupe accelerates from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.0 seconds, while the 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) sprint takes 8.4 seconds. Top speed is rated at 333 km/h (207 mph).

I'm no expert but it sounds a bit rubbish.

I agree. It's not a rubbish sound it's just not special or exciting. I feel the same about the car as a whole. Better than a 12c but still so dull and lacking any emotion. Performance might be great but for me this might as well have a Honda badge on it. On the other hand the flames that all the McLarens can produce though are far from boring :)

Agreed. In fact, that's what I meant. Not 'rubbish' on its own but very underwhelming and uninteresting when compared to how intoxicating its rivals sound. Bordering on boring. Maybe it's a turbo thing. And I kind of feel the same way about the look of it too. While I think it looks a little more interesting and memorable with more of its own identity than the MP4-12C (though they did go too far with the P1 resemblance I think), it's still not spectacular enough somehow. Real shame because lack of drama aside, it's pretty obvious this is a brilliant car. But the drama I believe is why people buy supercars. At least that's why I would.
