McLaren 650s vs. Drone

Nothing says 21st century like a Drone and a McLaren squaring off in a race throughout the streets of Dubai. The video, which looks more like a clip from a video game than real life, features a beautiful white McLaren 650s speeding through neon gates on a scenic night in brightly lit Dubai.

The video is a promotion for the World Drone Prix, which is taking place between March 7th and March 12th in Dubai. The World Drone Prix is an event put together to showcase the best drone racers in the world as they compete for cash and prestige in a likely up-and-coming sport.

The Drone won the race, but because of the nature of the video, that’s what everyone would expect. The real question is, what would happen if the two squared off in a real race? Would you put your money on the McLaren?

Check out the video below.

Exploring the McLaren 650S

ugo-colombo-mclaren-650SThe McLaren 650S is distancing itself from its forerunner, the MP4-12C. This car is streets ahead in design, power and technology. Some would suggest there is no other car on the market quite like it. While the brand-new Lamborghini Gallardo has a top speed of 202mph, the 650S tops out at 207mph. While the Ferrari 458 has 562bhp, the 650S has 641bhp. This stat alone sets the McLaren way apart from its rivals. The McLaren 650S can do 0-60mph in 2.9 seconds and a scorching 0-100mph in 5.8 seconds.

All of this performance is experienced in amazing comfort. Previous supercars of this size eventually begin to make the driver’s body ache where the 650S’s suspension works in such a way that, if one wheel hits a bump, the other three wheels have the ability to cover for their mate and you end up not noticing. The headroom in the 650S is immense and the touchscreen control system is quite superior. The 650S is aesthetically pleasing to look at. The car is drop dead gorgeous with the roof down.
