2016 McLaren 650S Adds Standard Carbon Fiber Trim

The 2016 McLaren 650S has been updated with new standard features.

According to the British automaker, the 2016 McLaren 650S will benefit from an additional $22,500 in standard features even though its base price is only going up $4,000 to $273,600 for the coupe. The convertible will start from $288,600 marking a $4,275 price increase over the 2015 model.

To justify the price increase, McLaren is outfitting the 2016 model year 650S with plenty of carbon fiber trim including the front splitter, side skirts, air intakes, rear bumper and mirror covers. On the inside, the carbon fiber trim package is now standard. All those were previously options for the McLaren 650S, representing the $22,500 value the company is boasting.

New option packages have also been added for the 2016 model year, including the Enhanced Technology Package that adds a front vehicle lifter to help avoid speed bumps. The package also adds power adjustable seats and steering column, premium Meridian sound system, parking sensors, backup camera and car cover, all for $9,950. McLaren added that the package is $6,000 cheaper than the options were standalone last year.

There’s also the $2,830 Track Telemetry App that outfits the sports car with data collection services for track duty. Speaking of track duty, buyers can also opt for stickier Pirelli P Zero R tires for $1,300 additional, although they aren’t legal in every state. Lastly, McLaren is offering larger profile racing seats for the same price as the standard seats as well as soft-closing doors for $930.
