British carmaker McLaren recently confirmed that the sports coupe 2016 McLaren 650S will be arriving this year. Although details about the new supercar are very hard to come by since the carmaker has not announced a specific date for its official release.

The new 2016 McLaren 650S comes at a price tag of $400,000 per unit and packs 750 horsepower. But the 3.8-liter McLaren 650S will set you back $265.500. This model packs 640 horsepower capable of producing 7,250 revolutions per minute. Top Speed estimated that since McLaren has started to share technologies between models, the new 2016 McLaren 650S will also be sporting MonoCell carbon-fiber tub chassis found in the 650S and P1.

On the outside, the 2016 650S will have McLaren's signature dihedral doors, first seen on the McLaren F1, which are lighter and more aerodynamic than conventional doors. They are also more practical as the single hinge design requires less room to open and makes it much easier to get in and out the cabin.

The seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox of the McLaren 650S will provide super-fast gearshifts and peerless efficiency and give the drive to control those gearshifts via a Formula 1-inspired rocker shift paddle mounted on the steering wheel. That means gearshifts are always at your fingertips, whether you're flat-out through Eau Rouge or trickling through Monaco's Grand Hotel Hairpin. A new feature allows for stacked shifts when the driver pulls the rocker shift multiple times, delivering the change directly to the desired gear. Or just select Auto and let the car do the work.

The British car maker is not expected to introduce much upgrade in the new 2016 McLaren 650S. According to Car and Driver, McLaren has not provided information about the new technology to be included in the new version. But it expects the new supercar to continue McLaren's aggressive aerodynamics to deliver powerful downforce, grip and speed.

Grip the tactile, small-diameter steering wheel and your fingertips' sense of connection to the McLaren 650S echoes that of McLaren's racing drivers in a Formula 1 cockpit - the shape, the grip and the feel were all inspired by the steering wheels in race cars.

The dashboard of the 2016 McLaren 650S is laid out simply and logically, the steering wheel uncluttered to keep the driver's car on the road.The low cowl - another benefit of the powerful V8 being positioned behind you - allows you to scan the road without obstruction, while the tops of the arches are positioned directly above the front wheels and are clearly visible from the driver's seat.
