The Car

McLaren is best known as a Formual One Constructor, the second oldest active team and the second most successful Formula One team after FerrariFounded in 1963 by New Zealander Bruce McLaren, the team and the cars have genuine motorsport heritage.

After Bruce McLaren died in a testing accident in 1970, Teddy Mayer took over and led the team to their first Formula One Constructors' Championship in 1974, with Emerson Fittipaldi and James Hunt winning the Drivers' Championship in 1974 and 1976 respectively. A host of the most famous and most successful drivers have driven for McLaren over the years.


 Niki Lauda, Alain Prost, and Ayrton Senna won seven Drivers' Championships between them. Mika Hakkinen won two back to back F1 Championships for the team in 1998 and 1999 and during the 2000s the team were consistent front-runners, with driver Lewis Hamilton, the most successful driver of all time taking the teams last championship in 2008.

Given the fact of McLarens success on the race circuits, the same could be for their road car line up, producing one of the most successful and Iconic cars that the world has ever seen, the McLaren F1. Now to bring us back to the present day.


The McLaren 650S will take you from your Eames lounger to eyeball-drying speed (60, obviously) in just under three seconds. That’s impressive for anyone, this really is a different animal. It’s aggressive, it’s fast and this is not supercar quick, this is hyper car quick. 641bhp and 500lb ft, the claimed performance is mind-blowing: a 0-60 time of 2.9sec is impressive, but it’s the 0-100mph time which really sets out the McLaren’s stall – just 5.7sec, more than half a second quicker than the McLaren F1. The top speed is 207mph. The McLaren handles like the tyres are one with the road in some form of Zen-like trance. The adaptive power train, handling modes and the carbon ceramic brakes means that the car does not give an inch. Even when pushed hard. Words should be able to describe it, but they don’t, and nor should they.

The McLaren is as svelte as a tailored suit, as fast as a Barrett 50, and has the stopping power of a ton of angry bulls on speed. I would urge you to refer to it with its new moniker: the Unicorn of Motoring.

Barry was the instructor who showed me how to get the best out of the experience especially as the weather was wet but thoroughly enjoyed and would definitely do it again ????????????????????????????

The McLaren 650S was the second of 4 cars I drove. Sam was a brilliant instructor. He told me what to expect from the car and when I started driving his instructions were clear and he filled me with confidence. It was a brilliant experience and I recommend it to any car enthusiast!


Drove the McLaren 650 today with a fantastic instructor. I think if you have experience driving fast and the instructor picks up on it and feels comfortable then you can really drop the hammer. The McLaren was one of the best handling of the day and 2 laps were just not enough...... Ended up doing 4 extra laps which just got faster and faster. Done a few track days but today was the best... Sun was out and the mood was great. Highly recommend for a fantastic day out.

Top day, Top staff, really top instructors... definitely a day to repeat, if you never try, then you should. I've driven the DB9, the Lambo (tony) and the Ferrari, all top cars, and awesome instructors, I've learned a lot with all of them... My favorite car is the McLaren 650S keep up the good work. ill see you guys soon...

was a great day , i done the ultimate italian job experience which was good fun then i drove the maclaren 650s which was unbeliable and i loved it , the only thing that was a little disapointing was that i paid extra to drive at the top gear track but it wasnt the full track , apart that it was a great day. one other thing is i paid £25 for the photos to be emaild to me but still not recived them, tried calling a couple of times but not managed to get through to anyone yet .
