McLaren 650S Spider
MSRP: $280,225
Horsepower: 641
Only 1,650 McLarens were sold worldwide last year, so seeing one of these on the road is a real treat. Although this exotic isn’t exactly luxurious inside, the excitement begins with a push of the start button — with the top down you really hear the roar of the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8. With 641 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque on tap, the 650 S can reach 60 mph in less than 3 seconds and triple digits come up in just 5.8 seconds. Top speed exceeds 200 mph. The low, wide stance, sport suspension, sticky Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires and a smart stability control system mean the McLaren has amazing grip. The 650S remains completely flat in high-speed corners — freeway entrance ramps at speed barely reveal the capabilities of the 650S.
