McLaren 675LT with 666bhp revealed ahead of Geneva debut

McLaren has already unveiled the track-only P1 GTR and here is their second surprise for next week’s Geneva Show, the 675LT, which “re-establishes the McLaren ‘Longtail’ heritage, focusing on light weight, optimised aerodynamics, increased power, track-focused dynamics and driver engagement”.

The 657LT is based on the 650S with some big aerodynamic and under the skin changes. 100kg have been shaved off and a third of parts are changed compared to the 650S which it sits alongside in the McLaren Super Series.

The twin-turbo V8 M838TL engine in the 675LT features more than 50 percent new components compared to the one in 650S. As a result the engine produces 675 hp (a very devilish 666bhp).

0-62mph comes in just 2.9 seconds, 0-124mph in 7.9 seconds and the top speed is 205mph.

Visually the 675LT has a more aggressive look, featuring extended carbon fibre front splitter, an extended door blade and additional cooling intake, circular twin titanium exhaust pipes, while the active ‘Longtail’ Airbrake is 50 percent bigger than the one fitted to the 650S yet and due its carbon fibre structure, is actually lighter.

The dry weight of 675LT is just 1,230kg.

The 675LT will be offered in five ‘By McLaren’ hero specifications, which includes McLaren Orange and four bespoke colours never previously offered: Silica White, Delta Red, Napier Green and Chicane Grey.
