The McLaren 675LT, which made its global debut at the 85th International Geneva Motor Show, will be the lightest (1,230 kilogram dry weight), most powerful and fastest model in the McLaren Super Series whilst also being the most exclusive. Production of the new model will be strictly limited to just 500 examples worldwide.
The limited production model has a clear focus on light weight, optimised aerodynamics, increased power, track-focused dynamics and driver engagement. At its core is the lightweight carbon fibre MonoCell chassis, shared with each model in the Super Series, but the chassis set up and powertrain are bespoke, with a third of overall parts and components modified.
More than 50% of parts have been changed in the 3.8-litre V8 engine to deliver increased levels of power, torque and driveability. Upgrades include new, more efficient turbos, detail design changes to the cylinder heads and exhaust manifolds, new camshaft and lightweight connecting rods, and a faster-flowing fuel pump and delivery system. This results in 497kW (666 hp) and a 0-100 km/h sprint in just 2.9 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 7.9 seconds.
The limited edition McLaren 675LT will be available to order from all McLaren retailers with deliveries commencing from July 2015.
