A race car for the road, the new McLaren 620R is born out of the DNA from the 570S GT4, McLaren’s most successful GT race car to date.
Race cars must conform to strict motorsport regulations, but what would the 570S GT4 be like if freed from those restrictions? McLaren has built the answer: introducing the new McLaren 620R.

“The McLaren 620R is a limited edition, superlight coupe that is the perfect choice for an enthusiast wanting an authentic motorsport driving sensation – and performance to match – on both track and road”
Mike Flewitt – CEO, McLaren Automotive
Performance will naturally be formidable – 0-100km/h (0-62mph) takes just 2.9 seconds – but the 620R is primarily set up to be a road car capable of posting phenomenal lap times. You can see this in the incredible attention to the details of the specification. Stiffer powertrain mounts are deployed to reduce inertia under high load, the 7-speed SSG gearbox offers McLaren’s Inertia Push technology for super-fast shift times, while the GT4’s manually adjustable dampers offer 32 clicks of adjustment at each corner (and weigh 6kg less than regular dampers).
The lightweight motorsport suspension features aluminium wishbones and stiffer anti-roll bars. This, with McLaren’s latest lightweight braking system featuring a McLaren Senna-derived brake booster, combine to make the 620R a scalpel-sharp performer on road or track.
The car also offers a choice of Pirelli performance tyre to suit either of those environments – the standard P Zero Trofeo R semi-slick or the optional, track-only full slick. The latter, specially developed for McLaren by Pirelli’s Motorsport team, offers an 8% larger contact patch with the track surface, bringing lap times down even further. This is the first time a road-legal car with 19-inch front wheels and 20-inch rears has been engineered to run on slicks without the need for additional mechanical adjustment.
