First McLaren 620R delivered in India; dons a blue shade
McLaren has delivered India's first 620R race car to a customer in Bengaluru. It is the 65th of the 350 units ever built and flaunts a blue shade. As for the highlights, the premium four-wheeler has an aggressive design and a racing-oriented 2-seater cabin with many features. It draws power from a 3.8-liter, twin-turbo, V8 engine and can sprint from 0-100km/h in 2.8 seconds.
Why does it matter?

A large adjustable wing, eye-shaped taillamps, and dual exhaust tips are available on the rear end of the vehicle.
It runs on a 610hp, 3.8-liter engine
The McLaren 620R is fueled by a 3.8-liter, twin-turbo, V8 engine that churns out 610hp/620Nm and is linked to a 7-speed DCT gearbox. The car can accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 2.8 seconds.
The McLaren 620R has a luxurious 2-seater cabin, featuring bucket seats with 6-point harnesses, circular AC vents, a center console that divides the driver and passenger areas, and a flat-bottom multifunctional steering wheel.
