McLaren did a fine job by expanding the LT moniker to the Sports Series range and using it on a muscled up version of the 570S, called the 600LT.
With 600 PS (592 hp / 441 kW) and 620 Nm (457 lb-ft) of torque developed by the twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8, the McLaren 600LT is more of a supercar than a sports coupe.
Naught to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes only 2.9 seconds and the 200 km/h (124 mph) mark is hit in 8.2 seconds, while top speed stands at an impressive 328 km/h (204 mph).
On paper, the 600LT could give in a head-to-head race against the the 720S quite a headache. The sole Super Series currently available benefits from 720 PS (710 hp / 530 kW) and 770 Nm (568 lb-ft) of torque from a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8. However, its 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint is identical to the 600LT, at 2.9 seconds, though its 341 km/h (212 mph) top speed is superior.
Nonetheless, Hennessey took their own McLaren 600LT out for some fun shortly after taking delivery. And they raced it against the bigger, more powerful and more expensive 720 S both from a standing and a rolling start. A very intriguing comparison, wouldn’t you say so?
