McLaren’s New 600LT Will Set You Back $240,000

Want to put a new McLaren 600LT in your driveway? Better start saving, because with US pricing now announced, it’ll set you back $240,000.

The latest addition to McLaren’s “entry-level” Sports Series, the 600LT is based on the 570S, but takes the package much further.

The 600LT is powered by the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine as the 570S. But instead of 562 horsepower (419 kW) and 443 lb-ft (601 Nm) of torque, the version in the new Longtail kicks out 592 hp (441 kW) and 457 lb-ft (620 Nm) of torque. And with a curb weight trimmed from 2,989 lbs (1,356 kg) to 2,749 lbs (1,247 kg), it’ll rocket to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds (2.9 to 100 km/h), run the quarter-mile (about 400 meters) in 10.4 seconds, and top out at 204 mph (328 km/h).

In terms of raw performance, those figures put the 600LT well ahead of the 570S and just behind the 720S in Woking’s next-level Super Series. And so it does with the price, too: the $240k sticker bridges the gap between the 570S (which starts at $191,100) and the 720S ($288,845).

To put it in the context of its competitors, the MSRP on the 600LT puts it smack-dab in the middle between the Porsche 911 GT3 RS ($187,500) and GT2 RS ($293,200). It also fairly evenly splits the difference between the base and Performante versions of the Lamborghini Huracan, and puts it closer to the $256,550 price of admission on a Ferrari 488 GTB than the $214,553 Portofino.

Of course, there are ways you could spend more on your 600LT. The MSO Clubsport pack adds another $29,370 to the base price (bringing it up to $269,370), and the Clubsport Pro pack will cost you $34,600 (for an all-in cost of $274,600). Both packages include carbon-fiber racing buckets, which are also available as a stand-alone option (for $6,060) along with lighter-weight alloys (for $4,950). So for your money, what would you take – and how would you spec it?

      Cool list. To me, the 488 GTB and Lambo are the most beautiful of the bunch and the Lambo and Porsche are the best sounding of the group. Usually, I think the GT2RS is beautiful, but in this group it looks surprisingly almost, ugly, dare I say! haha… Now the question remains…which to buy with my Monopoly money…??? lol

    The fact that the 600LT costs as much as a 488GTB puts it into perspective. McLaren has made an amazing car, but it’s nevertheless a sport series machine. The Ferrari is a much more complete supercar, not to mention more useable, much more powerful and, overall, just a league above. I suppose the 600LT is more exclusive, but then again the 488 isn’t exactly a popular sight itself.

      That’s exactly what I said. LITERALLY.

      I Don’t think you read the specs.

  • Some ol’ bloke

    It doesn’t. The 720s has a twin turbo 4 litre V8, not 3.8 litre. They do not depreciate like rocks, just look on Autotrader, and how can it look like an NSX with down syndrome? Look up NSX vs Mclaren 600LT and there is no comparison picture!

    C’mon dude, hahaha. I live in miami, land of exotics used to go get a bag of chips at 2 am. And even here, 911’s always get attention. And, this also being the land of gold-digging ladies, I can assure you that any Porsche will get them interested in you far sooner than 90% of all other cars out there.
