Produced by McLaren Special Operations and limited to just 50 examples worldwide, the 650S Can-Am was built to honour the awe-inspiring and fearsome Canadian American Challenge Cup race cars that first took to the track in 1966. Offering extraordinary performance, breathtaking design and the exhilaration of open-top driving, the 650S Can-Am was a fitting tribute to McLaren’s legendary race cars of the past. The special-edition Super Series model featured exclusive enhancements echoing the spirit of the spectacular Can-Am racers.
The Can-Am applied a wealth of racing technology to create an exhilarating driving experience in the world’s most versatile supercar. Cocooned in the lightweight carbon fibre MonoCell, the twin-turbo V8 engine mounted behind the driver for perfect balance and scintillating dynamics. Weighing just 75kg, the MonoCell contributed to the Can-Am’s stunning power-to-weight ratio of 478bhp per tonne, enough to accelerate 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 3.0 seconds. Exceptionally strong and stiff, the MonoCell provided outstanding crash protection for occupants, losing no rigidity. Because no additional bracing was required to stiffen the Spider body, the weight gained was kept to a minimum – under 40kg – allowing the Can-Am to both corner like a race car and glide over bumpy roads with absolute compliance.
This scale replica of the McLaren 650S Can-Am is finished with distinctive Mars Red bodywork, a deep metallic colour that commemorates the McLaren’s inaugural year of Can-Am racing in 1966. On the inside, the black Nappa leather seats that feature Stone Grey Alcantara centres and contrast stitching has been recreated perfectly.
This fine 1:8 scale model has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops using detailed colour and material specifications, and original CAD data supplied directly from McLaren Automotive.
