Asia to Get Its Very Own Version of McLaren 625
|   Tuesday, October 14, 2014
British automobile manufacturer, McLaren Automotive have decided to launch a new model of McLaren 625 targeted solely for the Asian market. This model just like previous models of McLaren is going to be a high performance car based on Formula One technology.

Reports from the company state that due to overwhelming demand in Asian Markets, they have finally decided to modify the 650S model to make a new model 625C. 625C is released just to suit the taste and demands of Asians.
According to reports the McLaren 625 C is going to have the McLaren V8 technology twin turbocharged 3.8 litre engine.

McLaren 650S produces a power output of 641 horsepower and measures 500 pound- feet of maximum torque. It has a top speed of 207 mph. McLaren 625C produces a power output of 616 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of maximum torque.

McLaren claims that the 625C can reach a speed of 62 miles per hour in just flat 3.1 seconds and can reach a maximum speed of 207 mph, similar to that in 650S. While the coupe model of 625C can reach a speed of 124 miles per hour in 8.8 seconds. Similarities with 650S doesn't just end there, 625C also has similar CO2 emissions around 275g/km. The 625C runs on a combined cycle and has a fuel economy of around 24.2 miles per gallon.

McLaren 650S is one of the best refined car available in the market and McLaren has gone a step further and made more changes in the 625C. 625C is going to be fitted with new and improved dampers and has a revised suspension setup to give it a superior mechanical balance. 625C will feature a less rigid spring rate. This will ensure a better response which will result in a more comfortable ride.

To meet customer demands in Asia the 625C has been designed for optimum comfort and usability. There have been changes made in suspension hardware and ProActive Chassis Control to ensure a smooth ride. McLaren justified the "C" in 625C stands for ‘Club', which means it is a little less extreme and will have more accessible features.

The 625C model of McLaren is not going to feature carbon fibre ceramic units but instead will utilise cast iron disc for the brakes. Along with improvements the 625C is going to have some features similar to that of 650S because those are still best in line technologies.

This sudden interest in Asia comes as no surprise to car experts. This is because in 2013 McLaren entered Chinese market which resulted in 20 % of their total sales last year. So they recognised Asia a huge potential market so decided to launch a car suited for Asian style.

McLaren are going to release two versions of 625C, one is a Spider model and other is a Coupe model. Both models are expected to have an initial launch at Hong Kong in near future. It will be then immediately available for people in selected regions of Asia Pacific.
