As the more aggressive brother of the 600LT, it doesn’t come as a surprise that many aerodynamic add-ons are inspired by the 570S GT4 customer racing car. Canards on either side of the front bumper, a more prominent lip spoiler, and lightweight alloy wheels are featured, but so far, there’s no information available about the price of the 620R.
The 570S GT4 starts at 187,000 euros while the 600LT retails at 230,000 euros in Germany. There’s no denying the 620R is more expensive, more so if McLaren decided to cap production to merely a handful of models. So to speak, prepare to pony up at least 250,000 euros.
620 stands for 620 PS, translating to 612 horsepower in U.S. and British currency. That’s a lot of suck-squeeze-bang-blow for the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8, and knowing McLaren, a bit more torque should be possible. The 600LT is rated at 620 Nm (457 pound-feet) at the crank.
Particularly similar in design to the 570S MSO X commissioned by McLaren Newport Beach in 2018, the 620R brings the point home with the carbon-fiber interior complemented by acres of Alcantara upholstery. A steering wheel stripe in Papaya Orange and a warning sticker on the passenger side of the dashboard are also featured, along with red racing harnesses.
A metal plaque can be spotted in the hollow area under the infotainment system, but the low-res photo doesn’t help us with figuring out what it reads. When pressed by Piston Heads to offer more details, McLaren Automotive confirmed that the 620R will be offered to “select customers by invitation only.”
