Cape Town - You've seen them on our roads; you've dreamt about owning one and you've even made them your profile picture... But just how much do supercars cost in South Africa?

We allowed average South Africans to tap into their 'inner-millionaire' by getting them up close and personal with McLaren's sexy 650S.

Their reactions were priceless...


Wheels24 collected McLaren's awesome 650S supercar on Wednesday (July 22).

It has a monstrous power output of 478kW/678Nm from its 3.8-litre V8 rear-mounted engine. That translates into a claimed top speed of 329km/h and a 0-100km/h sprint time of 3.0 secs!

But what do South Africans think of it? Especially its price tag (It costs an astounding R5.4-million).
