This is not a car for the faint-hearted. This is a track animal let loose on the road. Our new sportscar benchmark. The fastest, most powerful and most extreme – yet road legal – Sports Series. Ever.
This is the next McLaren ‘Longtail’.
The ‘Longtail’ ethos permits us to push the envelope. To create the most thrilling and exhilarating road-legal model in the Sports Series. One worthy of the revered LT name. Brave engineering has led to the unique top-exit exhausts. They have an incredible soundtrack. A distinct aesthetic. And offer a substantial weight saving on the 600LT. With all the physical hallmarks of a true McLaren ‘Longtail’, the race car-inspired carbon fibre bodywork produces 100kg of additional downforce. The lower, stiffer suspension and increased front track create an aggressive stance and enhanced dynamic ability. Even the carbon fibre side intakes have been enlarged, to deliver the necessary cooling for the new 600PS powertrain.
The 600LT is powered by a 600PS and 620Nm engine. One that benefits from reduced back pressure in an exhaust system that is even shorter and more extreme than that of the McLaren Senna. The essence of an LT is more though than its physical silhouette. More even than reduced weight and increased power. The absolute remit is to engage and excite drivers to the highest levels imaginable. To this end, the 600LT features quicker steering, significantly firmer engine mounts, track-focused Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tyres and the lightweight suspension and braking system from the 720S.
A 600PS and 620Nm 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. An extreme 96kg weight reduction that builds on the carbon fibre MonoCell II chassis and lightweight aluminium body panels of the McLaren 600LT. And the weight can even be reduced further. With every lightweight option fitted, the lightest dry weight is as low as 1,247kg, creating an astonishing power-to-weight ratio of 481PS per tonne. Phenomenal acceleration from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) is achieved in a mere 2.9 seconds. Discover the exhilarating and thrilling performance of the new McLaren 600LT.
