McLaren introduces its track-focused road-legal supercar inspired by the McLaren F1 GTR “Longtail”, which dominated the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995… This is the McLaren 675 LT.
Based on McLaren 650S, The McLaren 675 LT has a pretty easy philosophy — decrease weight, increase power and optimize aerodynamic.
Looking at decrease weight, McLaren equipped its supercar with more carbon fiber, lightweight engine and other improvements resulting in a massive weight reduction… McLaren 675 LT is over 100 kg (220 lbs) lighter than the 650S coupé and has a dry weight of just 1230 kg (2711 lbs).
In order to improve power, McLaren optimized the 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine which now pumps out 675hp (666 bhp) and maximum torque of 700 Nm (516 lb ft). Its top speed stands at 205 mph (330kph) and its 0-62 sprint is in 2.9 seconds. In comparison with the 650S coupé, 675 LT has 25hp and 22Nm more than it.
McLaren fitted its new car with a lot of carbon fiber parts as the front splitter, side sills, enlarged “door blade” intakes, mirrors and rear bumper. At the rear, we still see two circular exhaust pipes made in titanium and an active rear wing. This machine produces 40 percent more downforce than the 650S.
The interior has a lot of carbon fiber and it is finished in Alcantara. Mclaren will offer just five exterior colour theme for its track-focused 675 LT, which will have its correspondent interior created carefully with selected materials and colours.
McLaren 675LT comes as coupé only — McLaren 650S Coupé and Spider continue in production alongside it.
