McLaren Reveals 675LT MSO Carbon Series — A Carbon-Fibre Masterpiece

Written By:

British supercar maker McLaren's obsession with carbon-fibre and road cars is a very well know one. The carbon craze kicked off with the carbon-fibre monocoque chassis of the manic McLaren F1 from the 90s.

Now, the Woking based carmaker has revealed the latest product of the infatuation with the sixth element in the form of the 675LT MSO Carbon Series.

The 675 LT MSO Carbon Series will be limited to a production run of just 25 cars, all of which have 40 percent more carbon-fibre than the already lightweight 675LT Spider on which they are based.

All of the new carbon-fibre pieces that make up the extra 40 percent have been designed and fitted by the McLaren Special Operations team specifically for the new limited run car and cannot be retrofitted onto either one of the other 675LT models.

The extra carbon-fibre parts include the retractable roof, the A-Pillar, the front and rear wings, the bonnet and the boot lid and surprisingly the fuel-filler cap.

The front wing features functional louvres which are inspired by the ones found on the McLaren 650S GT3 racing cars.

All the 675LT MSO Carbon Series cars are powered by McLaren's tried and tested 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 that kicks out a demonic 666bhp and 700Nm of torque.

The 0 - 100km/h sprint takes 2.9 seconds while the top speed is 326km/h.

If you're looking to purchase one of these 25 carbon-clad hypercar baiters, then you're unfortunately out of luck as McLaren have stated that all the cars are spoken for already.

The price-tag also hasn't been revealed though we do expect them to feature a hefty markup in price over the 'regular' 675 considering how exclusive they are.
