With the 2016 NAIAS taking place as we speak, another automotive event, this time in Europe, is trying to attract visitors: the 2016 Brussels Motor Show.
It might not be as large or well known as the ongoing event in Detroit, but Belgium’s show is a place where McLaren has announced its presence, for customers and fans across the region, and it will display two supercars: the 570S and the 675LT Coupe.
The less powerful example is also the first one to be launched in the Sport Series, and it carries a starting price of €162,750 in Belgium, while in the US it costs at least $184,900. For the money, customers will get a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8, found on the entire McLaren lineup in different outputs, rated at 570PS (562hp) in this case, enough for a 0-100km/h (62mph) acceleration made in 3.2sec and a top speed of 328km/h (204mph).
The McLaren 675LT Coupe is more powerful, more expensive and also larger. The Super Series exotic has resurrected the Longtail name and it’s limited to just 500 examples worldwide, which were sold out in no time.
The mid-engine and rear-wheel drive supercar uses the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which delivers 675PS (666hp) and 700Nm (516lb-ft) of torque, in this configuration, and it needs just 2.9sec to reach 100km/h (62mph) from a standstill, with a claimed top speed of 330km/h (205mph).
The 94th edition of the Brussels Motor Show will kick off on January 12, 2016, and will close its gates on the 24th.
