There's another variation of the McLaren 650S / McLaren MP4-12C out. This is the McLaren 675LT and is regarded as the most track-focused model in the range. Set to be debuted at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, this performer offers brutal performance and ultimate levels of driver engagement.
McLaren 675LT DetailsThe 0-100kph time has been cut to 2.9 seconds, but I find the 0-200kph time of 7.9 seconds far more impressive. Top speed is rated at 330kph. The 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged motor has received a few tweaks and McLaren claims that 50% of parts in the motor have been changed. These upgrades include new, more efficient turbos, changes to the cylinder heads and exhaust manifolds, new camshaft and lightweight connecting rods, and a faster-flowing fuel pump and delivery system. These changes are so extreme the engine receives a new engine code, which is M838TL.
Other changes included a more aggressive front, bigger titanium exhaust popues as well as additional cooling vents. Most obvious is the active Longtail airbrake, which is 50% bigger, yet lighter than the 650S unit. Overall, weight of the McLaren 675LT has been reduced to 1 230kg.
So with a bit more power, less weight and even smarter aerodynamics, the McLaren 675LT looks like it can offer brutal performance. The car is offered in five specifications which include four new colours: Silica White, Delta Red, Napier Green and Chicane Grey.
