2014 McLaren 650S Coupe

Watch as this blue McLaren 650S embarrasses a yellow Ferrari 458 during the Gran Turismo event in Slovakia. If you pay attention, you will notice the driver of the Ferrari trying to distract onlookers with his own version of the “gun show”. That doesn’t keep him from getting “rocked with a body-shot” as the 650S pulls farther and farther out in front.

The recently introduced 650S is a more economical version of the iconic McLaren 12C. A 641-horsepower 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, mated with a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission, is at the heart of this predatory beast. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3-seconds flat and has a MSRP of about $250k (2015 model).

The Italian portion of this equation registers at 562-horsepower. The ponies are derived from a naturally aspirated and direct injected 4.5-liter V8 engine. The 2015 Ferrari 458 carries an MSRP of approximately $240k.
