McLaren 675LT Models and 675LT History
Aiming to build an even better-performing supercar than their 650S, McLaren push to create a more athletic vehicle resulted in the 675LT. While the 650S served as the basis of the 675LT, extensive engineering committed by McLaren to improve all-around performance for the vehicle was inspired by the McLaren F1 GTR ‘longtail'. The McLaren 675LT features a series of weight-saving measures thanks to the increased use of carbon fiber, lighter alloy wheels and thinner glass. Aerodynamics has been tweaked for greater downforce and a larger airbrake to aid slowing down. High-performance carbon fiber brakes, Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo R tires as well as uniquely-tuned suspension derived from the P1 hybrid supercar insures the 675LT is intimately connected with the ground for superior handling. The McLaren 675LT uses the same twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V-8 engine as the one found on the 650S. However, the performance level has been bumped up to 666 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. Capable of running from 0 to 124 miles per hour in 7.9 seconds, the 205-mile per hour McLaren 675LT touts exceptional track record-challenging momentum. Production of the McLaren 675LT was limited to 500 examples.
