McLaren has announced a limited production 650S Spider Nurburgring 24H Edition ahead of its debut at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
Limited to just 8 examples globally, the 650S Spider special edition commemorates the British carmaker’s success at last year’s 24 Hours of Nurburgring.
McLaren GT factory driver Kevin Estre qualified the Doerr Motorsport 12C GT3 on pole position for the 2014 Nurburgring 24 Hours. The Frenchman’s blistering pace set a record lap time of 8m 10.921s – more than 6 seconds quicker than the previous record, and 2.5s clear of his nearest rival. Watch the onboard footage of the record-breaking lap below.
Built by McLaren Special Operations, the bespoke 650S Spider gains carbon fibre front splitter, rear diffuser and side blades. It also gets customised wheels and exhaust system from Doerr Motorsport.
Inside, the 650S Spider Nurburgring 24H Edition is even more carbon fibre intensive than the standard car, and its unique proposition illustrated further with a special plague, orange seat belts, as well as orange contrasting stitching and highlights for the Alcantara-leather mixed upholstery.
Power and torque figures for the limited edition McLaren 650S Spider remain unchanged from the standard model, producing 478kW (641 bhp) and 678 Nm (500 lb ft) of torque. This sprint from zero to 100km/h takes 3 seconds en route to a top speed of 333km/h.
