McLaren is now becoming a household name within the supercar market. The Woking-based firm is once again growing its range with yet another model being added to the line-up in the form of the 625C – a slightly cheaper and less powerful version of the 650S.
This may sound great to the fortunate few amongst us, but the 625C comes with a twist. It will be released exclusively in the Asian market. This is a new venture for McLaren as it is the first time a car from their range will be built specifically for one regional market.
New features to aid performance and handling include a revised ProActive Chassis Control setup, new suspension hardware, revised driving dynamics and improved ride quality. New dampers as well as a softer rear spring rate are the notable changes to the setup.
The 625C is powered by the company’s 3,8-litre twin-turbo engine producing a 459 kW and 610 N.m of torque. This means the 625C coupe will launch to 100km/h in just 3,1 seconds while reaching 200km/h in 8,8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 333 km/h. The 625C spider will reach 100 km/h in the same amount of time but performance is slightly hampered, with it reaching 200 km/h in nine seconds and a top speed of 329 km/h.
The 625C is set to be launched within the coming months, initially to Hong Kong but will reach other countries in the Asia Pacific region soon after.
