With a power to weight ratio that eclipses established rivals, the 675LT ‘Longtail’ is the most track-focused, yet road legal model in the McLaren Super Series. The sprint from 0-62mph takes 2.9 seconds, making the main focus for the 675LT very clear: to deliver maximum performance, engagement and excitement. Embodying the character of the McLaren F1 GTR ‘Longtail’ it focuses on five key characteristics synonymous with the LT badge: lightweight, optimized aerodynamics, increased power, track-focused dynamics and driver engagement.
“The Longtail is a famous name in the history of McLaren, first used on the fastest version of the iconic McLaren F1,” explains McLaren Automotive CEO, Mike Flewitt,. “The McLaren F1 GTR ‘Longtail’ was the final highly successful iteration of the F1, and it is an appropriate name for the most exhilarating and driver-focused version of the Super Series. The 675LT is the purest distillation of what McLaren stands for – pure driving pleasure.”
To achieve this, weight has been reduced through the increased usage of carbon fibre – the signature material of McLaren – and by lighter components throughout, including newly developed suspension geometry derived from the McLaren P1™, resulting in an increased track of 20mm. Power of the newly-developed 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine is 666hp.
The McLaren 675LT is also the most exclusive in the range, with only 500 coupés being produced.
