R Pack potential buyers also get a new titanium athletics exhaust system, which McLaren says is 5 decibels louder than the 620R’s standard pipework. As an added benefit, the upgraded system is a little bit lighter and far more absolutely free-flowing than the manufacturing facility set up.

The 620R is driven by a twin-turbocharged three.8-litre V8, which has been lifted from the McLaren 570S GT4 racer and retuned to establish 610bhp and 620Nm of torque.

To continue to keep all that performance in look at, McLaren has also equipped an intense aerodynamic package deal, which develops a total of 185kg of downforce at 155mph.
