The British sports car manufacturer has caught us all by surprise and presented during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas the all new 675LT JVCKENWOOD prototype.
As the name clearly states, McLaren had a partner in developing the concept – namely the JVCKENWOOD Corporation, and they both decided to work on the 675LT Coupe. The concept is not just for show there at CES as it actually celebrates the 25th anniversary of the partnership between the two conglomerates in the world of Formula One. We see minor design modifications here – the exterior rearview mirrors have been axed in favor of “camera blades” that will lower both drag and the vehicle’s weight. A third camera is tucked above the rear license plate – all three images will be digitally complied with the result projected on a Digital Rear View Monitor said to deliver a greater level of rearward visibility when compared with the traditional combo.
Rounding up the changes outside is the Onyx Black exterior paint adorned with silver racing stripes and mated to the gloss black lightweight alloy wheels. Inside the cabin we can find a Carbon Black Nappa Leather dashboard, Geometric Black Technical Fabric matched to contrasting Satellite Grey Technical Fabric on the dashboard. The driver and passenger will also be treated to racing seats, Calypso Orange accents or the steering wheel found in the P1 GTR. The instrument cluster has been switched to an advanced Head-Up Display delivering all vital info directly in the driver’s field of view.
