Watch McLaren's 650S successor drift around a racetrack

Squealing tires and a 4.0-liter V8 make some wonderful sounds.

Performing big, smoky drifts is more than just hooning around, or so McLaren says. The follow-up to the 12C and 650S is set to debut next month in Geneva, and a new video from McLaren explains that the wonderful dance that is intentionally induced oversteer actually teaches you a lot about car control. Oh, and there are plenty of clips of McLaren's new supercar to boot.

Chief Test Driver Chris Goodwin gives a brief overview of the what makes a McLaren so wonderful to drive. Goodwin says that all of the high-speed track development that McLaren performs during the development stage actually makes the car better to drive at low speeds as well. Watch the video for the full brief and listen to the sounds of the new Macca's 4.0-liter twin turbocharged V8.
