We are pretty pleased with the spotters in Tarragona, Spain. They have the luxury of having a test track that is used by McLaren, located not too far from them. That allows them to spot many of the new McLaren cars, like this first spot of the McLaren 600LT! The car will go into production in October of this year, in the mean time we will have to enjoy the spots of the test cars.
The 600LT is powered by a 600PS and 620Nm engine. One that benefits from reduced back pressure in an exhaust system that is even shorter and more extreme than that of the McLaren Senna. The essence of an LT is more though than its physical silhouette. More even than reduced weight and increased power. The absolute remit is to engage and excite drivers to the highest levels imaginable. To this end, the 600LT features quicker steering, significantly firmer engine mounts, track-focused Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires and the lightweight suspension and braking system from the McLaren 720S.
A 600PS and 620Nm 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. An extreme 96kg weight reduction that builds on the carbon fibre MonoCell II chassis and lightweight aluminium body panels of the McLaren 600LT. And the weight can even be reduced further. With every lightweight option fitted, the lightest dry weight is as low as 1,247kg, creating an astonishing power-to-weight ratio of 481PS per tonne. Phenomenal acceleration from 0-100km/h (0-62mph) is achieved in a mere 2.9 seconds.
