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.

  • Your speaking reminds faintly of generalisation over a race. I know that's pushing it, but although controversy isn't bad, I think somewhat of a more neutral reporting style would be more appreciated.

  • That‘s uh... a pretty generaistic and passive aggressive writing towards german tuners there 😅

  • As much power as a base 720S on a car smaller than it. Going to be quite a rocket.
