with a focus on lightweight, optimized aerodynamics, increased power, track-focused dynamics and driver engagement, the McLaren ‘675LT’ is set for its world debut at the 2015 geneva motor show. the coupé-only vehicle, described as the most race-capable, yet road legal, model in their super series to date, boasts a 3.8 liter V8 engine. it delivers improved levels of force, torque and driveability, racing from 0-62 mph in just 2.9 seconds and to a top speed of 205 mph. with a dry weight of 1,230kg, thanks to its carbon fiber construction, it has a power-to-weight ratio of 549PS per tonne.

re-establishing the british brand’s ‘longtail’ heritage, the supercar’s active airbrake is 50% bigger than the one fitted to the ‘650S‘, but is actually lighter because of its material structure. it demonstrates an aggressive appearance, that runs from the front splitter, through an extended door blade and cooling intake, to the circular and titanium forged, twin titanium exhaust pipes. the prominent, carbon fiber first splitter which works in sync with the lead wing end plates to increase downforce levels, sits above a newly designed front bumper, and helps create an exterior that looks as exciting as it is to drive.

moving inside from the exterior which is available in four bespoke colors; silica white, delta red, napier green and chicane grey, the striped out interior provides a purposeful driver-focused cabin. its pair of ultra lightweight carbon fiber bucket seats, upholstered in alcantara, provides comfort and support, at no cost to the car’s performance.
