McLaren Automotive have been doing exceptionally well over the past few years making a success of 12C and now 650S. The McLaren P1 is also quite the halo car and potentially the most capable machine of its breed. From racing to road, the British company have done rather well and they hope this positivity will continue to give the likes of Ferrari a hard time. The McLaren range is to continue expanding with the 911 rivalling P13 soon, but also with this McLaren 675LT.
The McLaren 675LT acts as the range topper for their supercar offering, P13 will sit under “sports.” Inspired by the Le Mans F1, LT stands for Long Tail and so the aerodynamic profile of this car has also been reworked. Its air brake is now double the size of that on a 650S to aid downforce as well as braking. Whilst based upon a 650S, the McLaren 675LT has had a third of its parts changed in comparison to the standard car making for a commendable 100KG weight saving. Its twin-turbocharged V8 engine possesses 50% new components including; turbos camshaft, connecting rods and a faster fuel pump. The engine is so different that it actually has a new designation, M838TL.
Performance has been boosted as a result of these changes in more areas than aerodynamics and weight. Total output from the engine is now 666BHP making for a power-to-weight ratio of 541BHP per tonne. 0-62MPH takes just 2.9 seconds, 0-124MPH in only 7.9 and it won’t stop until it reaches 205MPH.
Deliveries begin in July at a yet to be specified price.
