At the 2015 Geneva Motor Show McLaren has presented the 675LT “Long Tail”, a performance oriented version of the sportscar with a 0-100 km/h time of under 3 seconds.
Compared to the “standard” 650S a third of the components has changed: this allowed to achieve 100kg in weight savings, for a total dry weight of just 1,230kg and a power-to-weight ratio of 549PS per ton.
Offered as a Coupé only, the 675LT is powered by the 3.8 liter V8 Twin Turbo delivering 675 PS – hence the name – and will be the most track-focused, yet road legal, model in the McLaren Super Series.
The sprint from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes just 2.9 seconds, with controlled torque delivery ensuring optimized traction off the line. The 200 km/h barrier is broken in 7.9 seconds, and the top speed is 330 km/h (205 mph).
The exterior look features an extended carbon fiber front splitter, an extended door blade, additional cooling intake, and circular twin titanium exhaust pipes.
The active ‘Longtail’ Airbrake is 50 percent bigger than the one fitted to the 650S yet, due its carbon fibre structure, is actually lighter.
The 675LT is offered in five ‘By McLaren’ hero specifications, which includes four bespoke colours never previously offered: Silica White, Delta Red, Napier Green and Chicane Grey.
The famous heritage McLaren Orange completes the themes unique to the model.
The driver-focused cabin of the 675LT gives features ultra lightweight carbon fiber-shelled bucket seats, upholstered in Alcantara. The air conditioning controls are now incorporated within the touchscreen infotainment system.
