McLaren 600LT Puts On A Flame-Spitting Show At Goodwood

The 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed gathered gear heads from all over the world last weekend, who flocked in to see the latest and greatest vehicles with their own eyes.

From a new world record set by the Range Rover Sport SVR, which ran up the hill on two wheels, to the autonomous classic Ford Mustang that didn’t impress, or the V8-powered Aston Martin Cygnet, the event had it all.

It also had McLaren’s latest road-going machine, the 600LT, which proved that it doesn’t need an aftermarket exhaust to spit flames. Needless to say that the show attracted a lot of enthusiasts, including the usual car spotters, who were mesmerized by the LongTail sports car and immortalized the moment.

Besides looking and sounding good, the McLaren 600LT goes like a bat from hell, with the Woking-based firm quoting insane numbers that are more suitable for a Super Series Model. From naught to 100km/h (0-62mph), the 600LT is said to need an impressive 2.9 seconds, while maxing out at 328km/h (204mph).

True fans of the British marque know that the 675LT can complete the 0-100km/h (0-62mph) run in 2.9 seconds, and hit a top speed of 330km/h (205mph). So, McLaren made sure that the 600LT won’t cannibalize its larger and more expensive sibling, but with a little help from a tuning company, it can truly reach new heights.
