McLaren unveils Super Series headlining 675LT ahead of the model’s Geneva Motor Show debut.[Not a valid template]
McLaren has unveiled its ‘most track-focused, yet road legal, model in the Super Series’ range, the all-new 675LT, which is set to headline Woking’s stand at the Geneva Motor Show alongside the P1 GTR.
Powered by McLaren’s established 3.8-litre twin turbo V8, the 675LT kicks out (surprise, surprise) 675PS – slash 666bhp – giving it a 549PS/ton performance figure. Said power also equates to a 2.9 second 0-100kph time and a 330kph top speed, thanks to a stringent weight saving regimen that has seen the newboy drop more than 100kg over its sister models and record a 1230kg kerb weight.
McLaren has also emphasised that design of the LT – shorthand for Long Tail, another McLaren F1 hall of famer – showcases an altogether darker side than previous models. Apparently. The look of the carbon fibre festooned model has been styled much more aggressively than the 12C, 650S and P1 that came before it, but do be sure to let us know where. On the other hand, the ‘airblade’ rear spiler is also 50 percent bigger than that used on the 650S, so there is that.
The new 675LT will also appear in five different ‘By McLaren’ hero specifications/colour schemes including Silica White, Delta Red, Napier Green, Chicane Grey and traditional McLaren Orange. Expect the price to reflect the exclusivity.
