McLaren’s temporary answer to the new Ferrari 488 GTB is a very special, limited edition version of the 650S, called McLaren 675LT. This model also serves as an homage to F1 LongTails of the yesteryear, hence that LT in its name.
But there is more to McLaren 675LT than just a cool name and a fancy paint job. The car is a nicely upgraded 650S featuring a light weight, optimised aerodynamic kit with 20mm widened front and rear track and a longtail rear spoiler, increased power output, and enhanced driver engagement through improved throttle response and sportier exhaust note.
The engine is the same 3.8 liter bi-turbo V8 built by Ricardo and used in all McLaren models. In the 675LT it is tuned at 675 horsepower. Combined with an all-new Electronic Stability Control (ESC) calibration, and taking into account the dry weight of just 1,230kg, the LT promises an absolutely amazing driving experience.
It is not just the driver of the McLaren 675LT that will notice a definite difference between this car and the 650S. Onlookers too will take notice of the LT’s dual tailpipes sticking out of the rear apron, and also the its signature dish, which is a larger airbrake/spoiler, in essence a long tail!
Production of the 675LT is limited to 500 units for the entire world, and it is priced from £259,500. That is before yo spec it up with any MSO options or the available Club Sport pack which adds titanium roll hoop and harness.
