McLaren 675LT Lashes its long-tail before Geneva Motor Show

February 26, 2015 / by / 2 Comments

The Woking-based automaker has been teasing us with images and short snippets of this long-tailed beauty, but now it has finally revealed details of the McLaren 675LT. The New McLaren 675 LT is due to make its world debut in the upcoming Geneva Motor Show on March 3rd along with other supercars like Aston Martin Vulcan and the final version of Bugatti Veyron with its eldest sibling.

Although 50% engine parts of 650S have been altered, this track-focused supercar will be carrying a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8, which produces a devilish power of 666hp and 516 lb-ft torque thanks to the upgraded turbos, cylinder heads and latest camshaft. This power is transmitted to the ground via rear wheels mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission channel. Taking only 2.9 seconds to jump from rest to 62 mph (100km/h), it takes 7.9 seconds to sprint to 124 mph (200 km/h) on its way to a top speed of 205 mph. Its closest competitor Aston Martin Vulcan would beat it in the performance specs considering its 800bhp.

McLaren engineers laid great emphasis on reducing the weight and optimizing the aerodynamics. As a result this Super Series vehicle only weighs 2,711 pounds dry i.e. 220 Pounds lighter than 650S, thanks to its carbon-fiber construction. Other improvements include increased power, track-focused handling, an extended carbon fiber front splitter, additional cooling intake, an extended door blade and twin central exhaust pipes in back.

The sports car comes in 5 stunning color schemes including silica white, delta red, napier green and chicane gray (which are new for the car), whereas orange is the regular paint it carries. The stripped out interior perfectly complements the interior adorned with lightweight Alcantara seats with 675LT logos, logos on the rev counter and elective air conditioning. The estimated price tag is about $350,000 which is way less than Vulcan which would cost around $2.33 M.

    I couldn’t decide between an FR-S and an MX-5. But now, maybe the 675LT would be the best choice. Thank McLaren.
