Absolutely fabulous – it is the easiest way in which we can describe the new McLaren 625 Coupe. As you already know the car made it’s first appearance at the end of September.
Although the vehicle had only been shown online it was enough to get us interested and keep us longing to see the car be launched in an auto show. Now waiting is done as the car has made it’s public debut at the Guangzhou Auto Show in China.
And since we all know that McLaren is translated as speed in the drivers universe the new car has a detuned twin-turbo V8 3.8-liter engine developing 625 HP (460 kW) and 450 lb-ft (610 Nm).The motor churns 650 HP (478 kW) and 677 Nm (500 lb-ft) sent on the road through a dual-clutch seven-speed gearbox.
Good news not enough for you? Well then let’s see great as the 625C Coupe does the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 3.1 seconds.
And this is not all the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) run takes 8.8 seconds (0.4s more) while the car’s top speed is of no less that 207 mph (333 km/h).
But not all magic happens under the hood as the new McLaren comes featuring new dampers and a less stiff rear spring rate.
