The 675LT, the first McLaren in nearly two decades to wear the LT or 'Longtail' name, will stay true to the spirit of its iconic predecessor with aerodynamically optimised, dramatically enhanced styling that results in 40 percent more downforce than the 650S which it will sit alongside in the McLaren Super Series.
A total power output of 666 bhp, and torque figure of 700 Nm plus a focus on weight saving will ensure an electrifying, engaging and visceral driving experience.
These output figures are produced by a heavily revised 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 featuring lightweight components and new turbos. A controlled torque delivery of 600 Nm ensures optimised acceleration and traction from a standing start in first gear, rising to the full 700 Nm available from 5,500-6,500 rpm, through each of the other gears.
A redesigned crossover exhaust system, bespoke to the 675LT, is formed from lightweight titanium. Two circular titanium exhaust pipes exit centrally through exposed bodywork below the rear 'Longtail' Airbrake. The new system is designed to optimise performance and reduce weight another pillar of the LT ethos.
Available as a coupé only, the 675LT will join the core range of McLaren supercars later this year as a more track focused alternative to the established 650S Coupé and Spider. Together, they form the newly named McLaren Super Series which sits above the recently announced Sports Series in the range.
Further details of the McLaren 675LT, including its startling performance figures, will be released with the car's global debut at the 85th International Geneva Motor Show, on Tuesday 3 March 2015.
