The McLaren 600LT Spider may be a little too much for some people but to our eyes, it might just be the best-looking McLaren ever. The following gallery recently published by the British manufacturer only makes us love the droptop supercar even more.
Members of the press recently enjoyed the opportunity to test the hardcore Sports Series model in Arizona and the gallery below shows the car painted in Myan Orange, Lantana Purple, and Lime Green. The pictures serve to prove that no other supercars can pull off bright colors quite like McLarens.
Like the 600LT Coupe, the Spider is lighter than the standard model and tips the scales at a mere 1297 kg (2859 lbs), roughly 100 kg (220 lbs) less than the regular 570S Spider. What’s more, it only weighs 50 kg (110.2 lbs) more than the 600LT Coupe.
The engine powering the 600LT Spider is McLaren’s familiar twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 that’s good for 592 hp and 457 lb-ft (620 Nm) of torque. Drive is sent to the rear wheels courtesy of a dual-clutch Seamless Shift seven-speed gearbox which allows the supercar to hit 96 km/h (60 mph) in 2.8 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.4 seconds and hit a 324 km/h (201 mph) top speed. Drop the top and v-max falls to a measly 315 km/h (196 mph)… Just kidding, of course.
Aerodynamic modifications are aplenty with the 600LT and include a more pronounced front spoiler, bold side skirts, a fixed rear wing, and a carbon fiber rear diffuser. It also retains the same tailpipe design as the 600LT Coupe, meaning drivers can easily send flames soaring into the sky.
