German tuner unveils its 701bhp version of the McLaren 620R
The British supercar has been beefed up by Germans - not the first time that they have done such thing.
In several of my articles, I have reviewed British cars that have been tuned by Germans - something that I consider the worst thing they have given us since the Blitz. Previously we had a Rolls-Royce Cullinan that looked like an American whose diet consists solely of Big Macs and Pepsi, and now we have a McLaren, although this time the Germans have actually done something decent.
The car they chose to tune this time is the limited-edition 620R, which produces 612bhp. The Germans however cranked than number up to 701bhp, which allows it to do 0-62mph in just 2.8 seconds and attain a top speed of 204mph.
The car's weight now stays below 1400kg, thanks to newly calibrated sports springs and forged, centre-locking wheels made by US manufacturer Vossen. Price is still unknown, but it's expected to be more than the £250,000 original car.
Honestly, I think this car is pretty good, but I would still prefer to buy the one from McLaren, although I'm pretty sure all of the 225 of the 620Rs have already been sold.
