New limited edition coupe based on 570S GT4 will be first car in its class to offer true motorsport credentials in a fully road-legal package. Race cars, of course, must conform to strict motorsport regulations, but what would the 570S GT4 be like if freed from those restrictions? Today you have the answer: the McLaren 620R.
Performance will naturally be formidable – 0-100km/h (0-62mph) takes just 2.9 seconds – but the 620R is primarily set up to be a road car capable of posting phenomenal lap times. You can see this in the incredible attention to the details of the specification. Stiffer powertrain mounts are deployed to reduce inertia under high load, the 7-speed SSG gearbox offers McLaren’s Inertia Push technology for super-fast shift times, while the GT4’s manually adjustable dampers offer 32 clicks of adjustment at each corner (and weigh 6kg less than regular dampers).
The lightweight motorsport suspension features aluminium wishbones and stiffer anti-roll bars. This, with McLaren’s latest lightweight braking system featuring a McLaren Senna-derived brake booster, combine to make the 620R a scalpel-sharp performer on road or track. The car also offers a choice of Pirelli performance tyre to suit either of those environments – the standard P Zero Trofeo R semi-slick or the optional, track-only full slick. The latter, specially developed for McLaren by Pirelli’s Motorsport team, offers an 8% larger contact patch with the track surface, bringing lap times down even further. This is the first time a road-legal car with 19-inch front wheels and 20-inch rears has been engineered to run on slicks without the need for additional mechanical adjustment.
Aerodynamic performance is also key to the 620R’s motorsport credentials. It borrows the GT4’s adjustable carbon fibre rear wing – rendered road legal by the addition of a third brake light – which adds 185kg of extra downforce when set at the most aggressive of its three angles. The front bumper, splitter and bonnet have been redesigned for the road, adding 65kg of extra downforce at the front.
Inside the cockpit there’s no doubt we’re dealing with a racing-inspired machine. Super lightweight carbon fibre racing seats with six-point harnesses, carbon fibre shift paddles and the McLaren Track Telemetry system are standard, while floor carpet, glovebox, air-con, audio system and IRIS navigation have been deleted to save weight (although the last three can be added).
The 620R is available in three standard, GT4-inspired colours, McLaren Orange, Silica White, Onyx Black, but many other options are available through McLaren Special Operations (MSO), including exterior packs, race decals and a special livery inspired by the McLaren Senna GTR. ‘The McLaren 570S GT4 is a first-class GT race car that is attracting an increasing number of customer racing teams,’ says Mike Flewitt, McLaren Automotive CEO. ‘Now, in response to repeated customer requests, we have homologated that class-leading package for the road in the new 620R.’

If a person writes a check without sufficient funds in an associated account to cover it, the check will bounce, or be returned for insufficient funds. Each state has laws regulating how merchants may respond to bounced checks. In Connecticut, the merchant may file a civil suit and press criminal charges if the check writer does not reimburse him for a bounced check after the merchant has sent several notices regarding the matter.
Posted Notice Requirement
Merchants and other business owners who accept checks must post a notice where customers are likely to see it warning them of the potential consequences of writing bad checks. The notice must include the civil penalties that bad check writers may face, the appropriate Connecticut statute number and an advisory that the check writer may also face criminal penalties
Civil and Criminal Penalties
As of 2010, civil courts may require the check writer to reimburse the merchant for the value of the check plus pay up to $750 if he has no back account or $400 if the check is returned for insufficient funds. If the merchant chooses to press criminal charges, the bad check writer may face a fine of up to $1,000 and up to one year in jail. Writing a bad check is a felony charge if the check was for more than $1,000 and a misdemeanor if written for a lesser amount.
Required Written Notices
If a check bounces, the merchant must send the check writer a letter by certified mail at the check writer's last known address or place of business. Usually this letter is sent to the address on the writer's check. The letter must inform the writer that the check was returned ask him to reimburse the merchant for the amount of the check and inform him of the potential criminal or civil penalties if he fails to do so. If the check writers does not respond to the letter within 15 days of receipt, the merchant must send a second letter. This letter must inform the check writer that he has 30 days to reimburse the merchant before the merchant takes legal action against him. Both letters must be written in both English and Spanish.
