McLaren is introducing its first regionally focused model called the 625C. It is made specifically for the Asian market. The model is supposed to mimic the 650S visually, but with a focus on comfort.
Changes to the model include revised suspension hardware and interconnected dampers which should serve to maintain handling capabilities while improving ride quality. There will also be Sport and Track modes to switch to when comfort is not the priority.
The car is named after the power output of the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. It has been detuned to produce 625 horsepower. Though acceleration has slowed to 3.1 seconds to get from 0 to 62 mph, top speed matches the 650S at 207 mph.
but whats the point? Yes I know for the Asian market, but why did an entire new model need to be created to satisfy their demands? Ostensibly not much changes between the 625 and 650, so whats the point?
