The McLaren 650S has been around for some time now, but weirdly we rarely get to see a full, in-depth review of the car. That is probably because most people still think it’s just a face-lifted 12C with slightly more power and a bigger price tag.

That is what Motor Trend’s Carlos Lago wants to find out in his review of the McLaren 650S Spider. He puts the car through the usual series of skid pad tests as well as road and track tests to arrive at a rational and reasonable verdict:
