Could This Be McLaren’s New 688HS Special?

A few months ago, we brought you the first info on a possible hotter version of the McLaren 675LT, backed up by what seemed to be a scooped prototype, and now, we have what is being alleged to be official photos of the car.

These purportedly leaked images surfaced on Autogespot,  which claims that we are indeed looking at the real deal, but as usual, until McLaren steps forward and makes a statement, we have to take them with a grain of salt.

From what we can see, visual changes on top of the 675LT count the extensive use of carbon fiber on the body, including the new front bumper that will increase downforce, the roof scoop and a GT3-inspired large rear wing, coming with a Formula 1-like Drag Reduction System (DRS).

Reportedly named 688HS for High Sport, the supercar will supposedly benefit from a total of 688 PS (678 HP), meaning 13 PS (13 HP) more than what the 675LT has to offer. The extra punch, combined with an alleged weight loss of up to 40 kg (88 lbs) and the aerodynamic tweaks, will improve the exotic’s sprint time of 2.9 seconds from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph).

McLaren Special Operations (MSO), which is in charge of the project, is believed to build only 25 examples of the 688HS and while there isn’t anything official on the car at the moment, it’s being reported that all of them have been spoken for.
