Article by Christian A., on September 26, 2014

China is world’s largest market and McLaren sees some impressive sales and in order to boost the numbers even further, the British supercar manufacturer announced its first regionally tailored model aimed at the Asian market. Dubbed the McLaren 625C, the new model is based on the globally available 650S.

As expected, ‘625’ resembles the power delivered by the 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 engine (625 hp), while the ‘C’ stands for ‘Club.’ In addition, the engine delivers 610 Nm of torque and is bolted to a 7-speed SSG transmission.

When equipped with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres, the McLaren 625C Coupe accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.8 seconds, to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 26.7 seconds, while top speed is 333 km/h or 207 mph.

Meanwhile, the McLaren 625C Spider sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.1 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 9.0 seconds, to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 27.7 seconds, with a top speed limited at 329 km/h or 204 mph. Both models return a fuel economy of 24.2 mpg, while CO2 emissions reach 275 g/km.

According to McLaren, the 625C models are being launched in response to customer demand in Asia and are focused on day-to-day usability and comfort.

McLaren says that the new vehicle received revisions to the ProActive Chassis Control and the suspension hardware, while driving dynamics and ride quality are further optimized. Moreover, new dampers and revised mechanical balance give the vehicle the most refined ride of any McLaren model to date.

The 625C will be initially launched in Hong Kong, while other markets across the Asia Pacific region will be announced at a later date. [source: McLaren]
