McLaren is introducing its first ever regionally-tailored model, the 625C (Club) exclusively for the Asian market.
As the name suggests, it's a slightly less powerful and cheaper version of the 650S set to be offered in both coupe and spider versions with a V8 3.8-liter twin-turbo 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.
In terms of performances, the 625C Coupe will cover the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 3.1 seconds (+0.1s slower) while the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) takes 8.8 seconds (+0.4s) on its way to the same top speed of 207 mph (333 km/h). On the other hand, the 625C Spider has the same 0-62 mph sprint but will do 0-124 mph in 9 seconds and top out at 204 mph (329 km/h).
Updated mechanical balance and new dampers have created what McLaren describes as being their most refined model to date thanks also to a less stiff rear spring rate.
Both the McLaren 625C Coupe and Spider will be available at first in Hong Kong but other countries in the Asia Pacific region will get the cars in the following months.
