The McLaren 650S Can-Am honours the awe-inspiring and fearsome Can-Am race cars that first took to the track in 1966. Produced by McLaren Special Operations and limited to just 50 examples worldwide, this special-edition Super Series model features exclusive enhancements echoing the spirit of the spectacular Can-Am racers.

Bruce McLaren strove to minimise weight and maximise power in designing the McLaren Can-Am cars of 50 years ago. Today, the materials have changed but the philosophy and ethos remain the same – a lightweight carbon fibre MonoCell is key to the 650S Can-Am’s exceptional performance.

Weighing just 75kg, the MonoCell contributes to a stunning power-to-weight ratio of 485PS (478bhp) per tonne, enough to accelerate the 650S Can-Am from zero to 100kph (62mph) in just 3.0 seconds.

McLaren’s championship-winning Can-Am racers were some of the most distinctive competition cars of all time. The 650S Can-Am reinterprets that stand-out style for the modern era.

The McLaren M1B debuted in the 1966 Can-Am season with distinctive red bodywork. To commemorate that inaugural year, the 650S Can-Am can be specified in Mars Red, a deep metallic finish that perfectly sets off the sculptural bodywork of the Super Series model. Inside, Black Nappa leather seats feature Stone Grey Alcantara centres and contrast stitching.

The 650S Can-Am applies a wealth of racing technology to create an exhilarating driving experience. You sit cocooned in a lightweight carbon fibre MonoCell, the twin turbo V8 engine mounted behind you for perfect balance and scintillating dynamics. The 650S Can-Am is the perfect way to honour McLaren’s fearsomely fast Can-Am racers.
