The McLaren 650S has leaked ahead of its 2014 Geneva Motor Show debut, revealing a MP4-12C with an extra dose of P1.

Essentially a modified MP4-12C, the 650S will see its power increase from 625 hp to 650 hp while sporting 485 lb-ft of torque. On all four corners will be lightweight wheels wrapped with Pirelli Pzero Corsa tires while carbon ceramic brakes will be seen lurking behind those wheels. Available as an option on the 650S are carbon fiber seats, similar to what is found in the P1 supercar.

    Meh...I think it has too much P1 in the front. So much so that it'll detract some from the appeal of the P1. Also, what the hell is up with their naming scheme?
