McLaren 620R now available with £25,000 MSO ‘R Pack’

Road-going GT4 racer can be further enhanced with McLaren Special Operations upgrades

The McLaren 620R is Woking’s most extreme Sports Series model to date, bringing the spirit of its 570S GT4 race car to the open road. As if it wasn’t focused enough already, the marque’s Special Operations department has devised a package to enhance the experience further, for the sum of £25,000. 

Just 225 examples of the 620R are set to be produced worldwide, but if you’d like to make yours even more exclusive, the MSO R Pack is for you, and promises to enhance both the driving experience and aesthetics through the use of a number of new components.

> McLaren 620R review - is this the ultimate McLaren road car?

To complement the 620R’s standard aerodynamic elements, the R Pack adds gloss carbonfibre front wing louvres, while a whole host of new carbonfibre trim also makes an appearance in the cabin. Most notable, however, is the carbonfibre roof scoop, inspired by that of the iconic F1 GTR Longtail

Not only does it complete the race car appearance, it’s also a fully functional item, providing occupants with an enhanced induction sound – MSO will even fit a camera to it, allowing drivers to record their trackdays through the onboard telemetry system. 

Under the car’s skin is the same M838TE 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 you’ll find in the 570S GT4 racer, with outputs lifted to 610bhp and 457lb ft of torque; 0-62mph comes in 2.9sec with top speed at in excess of 200mph. Though the R Pack offers no changes to these figures, it does provide buyers with a titanium SuperSports exhaust system, lifting volume and improving tone.

As with the standard car, aerodynamic, hardware and chassis components are shared with the 570S GT4, allowing the 620R to develop 185kg of downforce at 155mph. Specific to the model are motorsport-inspired centre-lock wheels, two-way manually adjustable GT4 dampers and sticky Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tyres – McLaren will even provide you with full slicks for track use.

The R Pack adds £25,000 to the 620R’s £250,000 price tag, but although it may sound steep, opting for these MSO features individually would be a significantly more expensive affair…
