McLaren 675LT restricted to 500 units at $349,500 each, buy if you have money to burn
McLaren announced on the 2015 Geneva Auto Show that it would be strictly restriction the production of its 675LT supercar and it will be just 500 units while all of them being coupes. In a brief interview with the McLaren CFO Richard Molyneux, we were informed that the orders for the car will be just near 500 units by the time the show ended. It is like opera tickets selling within three minutes of opening the box office, but only this time the ticket are going to cost more than $349,500 as there will be shipping and handling charges to pay.
Some more tidbits were provided about 675LT by McLaren that we did not know before and they included the track which is wider by 20-mm over the 650S, springs which have been stiffened 27% more at the front and 63% at the rear and the control arms it uses is P1- inspired. Downforce for the car has been increased by 40%, and this offered by the new aero package which contains active elements.
Power has been boosted 25-hp more than the 650S and seven-speed automatic transmission dual-clutch has been recalibrated for the 675LT. There is a new paint scheme called “Chicane Gray” which will be debuting with the supercar.
This 675LT of McLaren is a higher-performance version of the 650S, and the last part of its name has been obtained from the F1 GT of the 1997 which was named as “Longtail” homologation special. It was a terror with its better power to weight proportion, racy aerodynamics and lengthened body frame than its model on which it was designed. Two of the three elements said above have been inherited by the 675LT but about the tail part? These all sound fantastic if you have money to burn and the passion for buying.
