McLaren Unveils 650S-Based 625C Model for Asian Markets

The McLaren 625C is being launched in response to customer demand in the Asian region, sharing the visual drama of the 650S, but with an increased focus on day-to-day usability and comfort.

McLaren has unveiled an entry-level 625C model created exclusively for the booming Asian market. It is based on the globally available 650S.

The Asian market has seen the biggest area of growth for McLaren Automotive over the past two years, not least with the entry into China in September 2013. Sales are set to grow from 20 percent in 2013 to more than a third in 2014.

The McLaren 625C is being launched in response to customer demand in the Asian region, sharing the visual drama of the 650S, but with an increased focus on day-to-day usability and comfort. Through revisions to the ProActive Chassis Control and the suspension hardware, the driving dynamics and ride quality are further optimized.

The name of the 625C refers to the power output of the highly efficient derivative of the 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 powerplant - 625 PS (616 hp). 'C' stands for 'Club', highlighting a more accessible and less extreme model in terms of character. However, the McLaren 625C enjoys a number of the technical advances already debuted on the McLaren 650S.

With a power output of 616 hp (25 hp less than the 650S model), enhancements have been made to driveability and efficiency with engine torque of 450 lb-ft (35 lb-ft less). Acceleration from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) takes just 3 seconds, while 124 mph (200 km/h) is reached in 8.8 seconds for the Coupe. Despite the lower power of the 625C, maximum speed mirrors that of the 650S, at 207 mph (333 km/h), and CO2 emissions remain the same, at 275 g/km.

The British manufacturer claims new dampers and revised mechanical balance give the McLaren 625C the most refined ride of any McLaren model to date. The bespoke set up, with a less stiff spring rate at the rear, ensure a sharp response with no loss in ride comfort through the ProActive Chassis Control system in 'Normal' mode, without any compromise to handling or performance in 'Sport' and 'Track' modes, offering.

The new McLaren 625C will be launched in Hong Kong immediatelly, with other Asia Pacific markets to follow in the coming months.
