Powertrain & Performance
The new 2021 McLaren 620 R is the most powerful vehicle in the Sports Series – which also includes the 570S, 570GT, 540C and 600LT. The vehicle is capable of generating 610 horsepower alongside 457 pound-feet of torque thanks to a 3.8L twin-turbocharged V8 engine. All that power translates to impressive performance times as well, as you might have expected.
The vehicle is capable of accelerating from 0-62 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds, or from 0-124 mph in 8.2 s. It can then push on to a max speed of 200 miles per hour. Those numbers are certainly track worthy, and they give the 620R the fastest lap time of any model in the Sports Series of vehicles. We’ll be sure to cover even more details about this special edition vehicle in the weeks to come, so be sure to check back often to learn more.
