McLaren has officially started production of the new 675LT. It was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show and some suggest it is the ultimate expression of the company’s essential Super Series.
The McLaren 675LT is based on the same underpinnings as the 650S that forms the core of the McLaren range, but upgrades with a more powerful version of the company’s ubiquitous 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8, now producing 666 horsepower and breathing through a titanium exhaust system. As a result, 0-62 is now quoted at a scant 2.9 seconds, with a top speed pegged at 205 miles per hour. It’s also got revised bodywork inspired by the Longtail version of the legendary McLaren F1, offering improved aerodynamics and its LT designation, along with a more hardcore, track-focused setup.
McLaren will only make 500 examples of the 675LT. With assembly now kicking off at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, England, those 500 fortunate customers will soon be getting their hands on their new toys.
