If you were about to repurchase what would you choose?

1. The new 650S at say £200k (no carbon)

2. A heavily discounted , run out, new 12C at say 20% discount , £175 k

3. A low mileage used 12C Spider at a bargain price at say £140k

A little more seriously, I don't know what a 650c is?

It's a well known public secret...........but I sympathise as it was claimed by Mclaren that the MP4-12C would have a 5 year model life, but I guess time fles.

It's a _650S_ not C!

Anyone care to get what the "S" might stand for?

Although, "650S" is still just a codename, not the actual name of the car.

I think it's cheap cos it's the 4 wheel drive version. Thankfully we are handily informed it has two seats also

Read the Geneva thread John :)
I did Andy. Still not sure what the heck it is.

Is it a new 12C replacement with a refined nose and 650HP, but otherwise the same thing?

Is it a new model that is at the aventador price range with new looks/design?

Is it the "Speciale" version of the current 12C?

I didn't see consensus on that; sorry if I missed it.

John - it has updated IRIS body panels 650 hp ceramics are standard with the same tub.

The dealer called me and offered to take my car in trade along with my AMEX.

I denied the offer because this new model will cause my swipe MP4 to appreciate.

If you don't believe me I can post CL's pm.

To answer the OP - there are maybe 4 in my entire state and some think it's a P1 no need to move on.

Unless someone has a horrible itch, it makes sense to wait the 5-weeks that are left to see what you might be missing when McLaren unveils this great new thing in Geneva.

All rumors point towards a Speciale version of the 12C.

So like the Speciale, slight change in design, upgraded engine, upgraded handling, upgraded downforce, upgraded pricing...
