The final 620R rolled off the Woking assembly line, in Surrey, UK, in December 2020, marking the end of McLaren’s Sports Series lineup.
Since McLaren’s entry-level model range was launched in 2015, they sold over 8,500 examples around the world. The range comprised of the 540C, 570S, 570S Spider, 570GT, 600LT Coupe, 600LT Spider, and 620R and will be replaced by the new Artura plug-in hybrid supercar.
The McLaren 620R is the most extreme Sports Series model ever. The 620R is based upon the 570S GT4, sharing its aerodynamics and featuring a wider track, lowered suspension, carbon-ceramic brakes, stainless steel exhaust system, and center locking wheels. The 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, also shared with the GT4 racer, produces 611 HP (620 PS / 456 kW) and 457 lb-ft (620 Nm) of torque, for a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) of 2.9 seconds and a 200 mph (322 km/h) top speed.
Now, the Sports Series range may be officially dead, but not all examples are sold out. For instance, the final 620Rs just touched down in North America, and are on their way to the official retailers. Global production is capped at 225 units, and only 70 were slated for the US market, and some of them are still for grabs, according to McLaren.
All North American examples are equipped with the MSO package, which adds a glossy carbon fiber roof complete with a scoop for improved air intake and exhaust sound, carbon fiber roof cantrails, and Track Telemetry system with lap timer and three cameras to record laps.
“Limited-numbers models with the highest levels of performance – cars like the 620R, which feels like a race car on the street or at a track day – are in demand not only because of the driving experience they offer but because they have even greater exclusivity”, said McLaren’s President, Tony Joseph. “You can see how this has played out with the 765LT as well, with all of the available volume sold.”
On a different note, McLaren has also confirmed that the 765LT is sold out.
