McLaren introduced its first regionally tailored model exclusively for the Asian market. The 625C ( ‘C’ standing for ‘Club’ ) is a slightly less powerful version of the 650S set to be offered in both coupe and spider versions.
The 625C is powered by McLaren’s familiar 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine outputting 625 HP (460 kW) at 7,250 rpm and 610 Nm (450 lb-ft) of torque between 3,000 and 7,000 rpm. The company says it has “an increased focus on day-to-day usability and comfort”. The 625C is equipped with new dampers and a revised suspension setup (including softer spring rates at the rear). There are also new brakes, which are cast-iron discs instead of the carbon fiber-ceramic units found on the 650S.
The car looks pretty much the same as its powerful predecessor 650S. The front end is inspired by McLaren’s new hybrid supercar. McLaren 625C will hit 62mph in 3.1 seconds that’s 0.1 of a second slower than a 650S, while the top speed remains the same at 207mph.
Both coupe and spider versions of the 625C will go on sale, and the model will initially launch in Hong Kong, and other countries in the Asia Pacific region will get the cars in the following months.
