Being the most powerful car in the McLaren Sports Series – and also the fastest around the track – the 620R is a truly unique proposition. It not only looks like a race car, it handles, performs and feels like a race car too. Based around the 570S GT4’s single-piece carbon fibre Monocell II chassis, the 620R is lives up to the McLaren lightweight design ethos. Its motorsport DNA is further enhanced by the adoption of the GT4’s adjustable aerodynamic elements, race suspension components and a powertrain recalibration that increases power output to the 620PS (610bhp) which gives the car its name.
Exclusive and extreme in equal measure, the McLaren 620R retains the DNA of a fully homologated track car yet is free from the restrictions that race regulations apply.

BACKGROUND AND HISTORY:
The McLaren 620R is the range-topping version of the Sports Series, the company’s entry-level lineage of sports cars. Essentially a road-legal version of the 570S GT4, the 620R slots above the 600LT. Design-wise, the 620R is almost identical to the 570S GT4. It also features the same engine, but because it’s not restricted by racing regulations, the V-8 boasts more power.
Rated at 610 horsepower, the 2021 620R is the most powerful Sports Series vehicle ever created. It’s also the quickest, but it lags behind its siblings when it comes to top speed. With production limited to 350 units, the 2021 McLaren 620R costs upwards of USD 300,000
Save for the racing livery, of course. In the front, we can see the same race-spec upgrades over the standard 570S. Just like the 570S GT4, the 620R features a redesigned bumper with a one-piece splitter, curved winglets on each of the fascia, and a larger intake under the nose.
The latter features a fine mesh. We can also see a fabric tow loop (instead of the race car’s conventional hook). The carbon fiber front hood even features the same nostrils as the race car, although they seem a tad smaller. The only notable features from the 570S GT4 that disappeared here ar the quick-release pins for the hood. A race-specific feature, quick-release pins wouldn’t make sense on a road car anyway.
Just like on the race car, downforce at the front of the car is further enhanced by dive planes that create vortices of low-pressure air at track level. They also help accelerate airflow along the car’s sides, while improving cooling for the braking system. The dive planes contribute with up to 66 pounds of downforce to the total 143 pounds delivered by the front aero package.
The profile of the 620R is again identical to 570S GT4, save for the wheels. The road car features the same sharp side skirts, enlarged door intakes that feed air into the engine, and the same lowered ride height. The wheels are different compared to the race car, but they're also unique compared to the standard 570S and 600LT.
The same goes for the rear end, where only the license plate number and light on the wing set the 620R apart from the 570S GT. The brake light was added to turn the massive race-spec wing into a road-legal element, so the 620R features the same aero piece as the 570S GT. Made from carbon-fiber, the wing sits 12.5 inches above the deck lid in order to increase downforce and minimize drag.
But while the race car features a three-way adjustable wing, the 620R comes with the wing set to its least aggressive angle, which returns an optimized balance between the front and the rear for road driving. If you want a more aggressive angle for track driving, you can have the wing modified at a McLaren dealer. In its most aggressive setup, the wing generates up to 408 pounds of extra downforce.
The 620R draws juice from the same 3.8-liter V-8 engine as the 570S GT4, but it is more powerful that its track-only counterpart. Thanks to race-spec upgrades that McLaren designed for the 570S GT4, as well as the fact that the 620R is free from racing regulations, this coupe cranks out more oomph than its track-only counterpart.
The McLaren 620R comes with 610 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque on tap. That’s 48 horses and 14 pound-feet more than the regular 570S. Amazingly enough, the 620R packs more punch than the 600LT too, which is rated at 592 horsepower and 457 pound-feet. While torque is similar, the 620R benefits from an extra 18 horsepower. This makes it the most powerful model in the Sports Series lineup.
McLaren claims that the 620R "handles like a race car, performs like a race car and feels like a race car." These are mighty big claims, but given the race-spec parts borrowed from the 570S GT4, I’m pretty sure it’s more than just PR talk and that the 620R would actually stand a change against the GT4 car in a race.
The 620R is one of the most extreme cars McLaren created so far and, impressively enough, it’s almost as quick as the old 675LT or the newer 720S, a couple of supercars that compete in a superior segment. The 620R is also some sort of a premiere for McLaren, which has yet to add a similar track-ready supercar to its Super Series lineup.
