McLaren, the renown luxury cars’ manufacturer, has unveiled the sleek new luxury car 675LT Spider at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The McLaren 675LT Spider is the fastest convertible that the British brand has ever made. Slightly longer than the 650S, revised aerodynamically, and equipped with a more powerful engine, the 675LT was limited to only 500 units and became a hit, selling out in just two months after its official debut.
The convertible car is similar to the regular McLaren 675LT save for the retractable roof and lighter weight. Powering the devilish car is a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V-8 engine that puts out 666-horsepower that can take it from 0 to 60 in 2.9 seconds. Revised cylinder heads, exhaust manifolds, high-flow fuel system and more efficient turbo chargers are among the tweaks that make speedster more powerful.
Aerodynamic aesthetics include front wing endplates and an extended front splitter to help create a downforce 40-percent greater than the open-air 650S. Airflow is also optimized by intakes in front of the rear wheels and at the side for consistent cooling, and by the “Longtail” Airbrake at the back for better handling—the latter enlarged by 50 percent over those found on other convertible cars in the McLaren Super Series line.
The refined racer’s interior is replete with Alcantara appointments and Xenon Yellow contrast stitching for distinctive detail. Carbon-fiber fixtures include shelled seats finished in embossed leather. And comfort in the cabin is controlled by a touchscreen display that also manages the four-speaker Meridian sound system. The car also features 19-inch forged alloy wheels. Finally, the air conditioning system has been removed but is available as a no-cost option.
Set to go on sale next year, the expensive 675LT Spider will find its way to customers starting summer 2016 with a price tag of $372,600, most likely as a 2017 model in the U.S. Production will commence as soon as McLaren builds all 500 675LTs.
