McLaren 600LT Does A Standing Kilometer Faster Than You Can Name Its Rivals

All lights at McLaren’s Geneva Motor Show stand were on the 720S Spider and Speedtail, and to a lesser extend the 600LT Spider.

Thus, it was easy to overlook the 600LT Coupe that, by today’s standards, is almost old news for most. Not for us, though, and not for MotorsportMagazine, who made a video about the most extreme Sports Series model.

Now, this isn’t your usual review, which covers many aspects of the car, but a very dynamic video. Shot at an airfield while the automotive industry was getting ready for the Geneva show, it shows the 600LT Coupe in a standing kilometer sprint, with the Launch Control engaged, during which it hit over 290 km/h (180 mph).

Chris Harris Reviews McLaren 600LT, Finds It More Rewarding Than The Senna

Flat-out, the British supercar can do much more. In fact, McLaren claims that it maxes out at 328 km/h (204 mph) and hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.9 seconds and 200 km/h (124 mph) in 8.2 seconds. Applying full pressure to the brake pedal will stop it in 31 meters (102 feet) from 100 km/h (62 mph) and 117 meters (384 feet) from 200 km/h (124 mph).

The mid-mounted 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 powering the 600LT is shared with the rest of the Sports Series range. It’s also found in the larger and more expensive 720S models, albeit with an increased, 4.0-liter capacity and a large number of mods. In this 600KT, it’s capable of pushing out 600 PS (592 hp / 442 kW) and 620 Nm (457 lb-ft) of torque, which may not be a huge upgrade compared to the 570S or 570GT, yet is enough to make it even more ballistic.

Besides, the 600LT isn’t a one-trick pony, but “a sports car that begs to be driven”, according to McLaren. And, once in a while, floor the right pedal and let the raw acceleration provide you with a healthy dose of adrenaline, we may add.
