McLaren is celebrating five decades of the Can-Am racing series with a very special car, the 650S Can-Am. Wrapped in livery that echoes their history in the racing series, the car’s design draws from the original McLaren racers from ’60s and ’70s with an updated version developed my McLaren’s Special Operations team.
Produced in a limited edition run of 50 cars, the 650S Can-Am is based on their Spyder model and would certainly make Bruce McLaren proud with its 3.8L v8 that produces 641 hp which helps the car get to a 204 mph top speed and a 0-62 time of just 3.0 seconds.
The special edition will feature a carbon fiber retractable hard top, the first time its been featured in a McLaren car, and various other carbon fiber upgrades in the hood, airbrake, front splitter, rear bumper center, and door blades. Also exclusive to this model are Can-Am-inspired wheels with a gloss black finish that’s surrounded by a diamond-cut rim and a new quad-exit stainless steel exhaust system and a carbon fiber rear grille.
