The McLaren 650S is a globally popular car and with the company expanding further they are aiming to increase the range of customers they currently attract. The 625C is McLaren’s answer to the increasing demand for supercars in the Asian market. It will be available in both a Coupé and a Spider version from launch. This new version will be more refined in an attempt to make the 625C become even more user friendly and comfortable on a day-to-day basis than a 650S.
These tweaks do not mean that McLaren have fallen short in terms of performance however. A 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 engine produces a staggering 616 bhp and is capable of going from 0-60mph in a mere 3.1 seconds. It won’t stop accelerating until it reaches a blistering top speed of 207 mph in the coupé version, drawing a parallel with the 650S. The Spider falls slightly short at 204 mph, but is hardly sluggish when you’re driving without a roof.
Technology implemented into the 625C means it can boast the best ride of any McLaren to date. A new chassis control system enables the driver to select from three options; ‘Normal’ allows the driver to travel comfortably with softer rear springs but does not deprive the driver of brutal supercar performance when ‘Sport’ or ‘Track’ mode is activated.
The 625C is also an attractive car to look at. Keeping to McLaren’s philosophy of being subtly exquisite machine to look at. The 625C offers all the thrills of supercar performance whilst being able to offer comfort and accessibility via McLaren’s cutting edge technology.
