McLaren unveiled their latest product, the 600LT, at the end of June. Now, approximately two weeks later, the Sports Series model has made its dynamic and public debut at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
In between straight-line accelerations and tackling curves with guts, the McLaren 600LT has also entertained the audience gathered on Lord March’s domain by doing a few donuts.
The LongTail is only 74mm (3in) longer than the 570S and comes with revised bodywork that includes an extended front splitter, fixed wing at the rear and lengthened diffuser. Its visual upgrades do serve a bigger role other than helping it stand out from the rest of Woking’s Sports Series models, as they improve its aerodynamic performance too.
Combined with a punchier twin-turbo 3.8 liter V8 engine that makes 600PS (592hp / 442kW) and 620Nm (457lb-ft) of torque, and a 96kg (212lbs) weight loss, the McLaren 600LT is quite a beast under heavy acceleration. The 0 to 100km/h (0-62mph) sprint is completed in just 2.9 seconds, identical to the 675LT, and the 0-200km/h (0-124mph) sprint takes only 8.2 seconds. Flat out, the British supercar will do 328km/h (204mph).
As expected, McLaren will limit production, with numbers to be announced. Assembly will kick off this November and pricing will commence from £185,500 ($245,004) in the United Kingdom. Of course, clients will spend a lot more than that if they decide to add some optional extras, such as the Clubsport or Clubsport Pro packages, which cost £24,170 ($31,923) and £28,480 ($37,616), respectively.
