McLaren will add a new LT model designation (standing for “Longtail”) to the existing C and S models at the Geneva Motor Show, where a new supercar called 675LT will be unveiled.
Described as the lightest, the quickest, and the purest version in the range, the 675LT will join 650S and Asia-only 625C in the newly named McLaren Super Series, which sits above the recently announced Sports Series in the range hierarchy.
As the name suggests, the McLaren 675LT should be based on the 650S and will be a “modern day interpretation of the McLaren F1 GTR ‘Longtail,’” according to the automaker. The name also betrays the engines output of 675PS, or as McLaren points out, a “devilish 666bhp.”
The new model will therefore be the most powerful offering in the Super Series and will focus on performance optimized aerodynamics, increased downforce, driver engagement, power and reduced weight. It will only be offered in coupé bodystyle when deliveries start later this year.
The McLaren 675LT will share the limelight with the production version of the McLaren P1 GTR.
