With a new extensive photo gallery of the 675LT Spider, McLaren wants to remind us why its latest lightweight drop-top supercar sold out in just two weeks.
The range-topping model of the Super Series made by McLaren, the 675LT Coupe, reached the sold out status within just a couple of months after its public debut from a year ago at the Geneva Auto Show. Based on that success, the British supercar maker did not hesitate too long to offer an open-top version as well. The 675LT Spider, only the second McLaren in nearly two decades to wear the LT, has been completely booked in two weeks across its entire 500-unit production run. Therefore, since there is no unit left for those considering to buy one, the company has sought to show them what they have missed.
As a reminder, the main focus for the 675LT Spider is to deliver maximum open-top excitement and performance with the lightest body possible. Therefore, weight has been reduced by 100 kg through the increased usage of carbon fiber and by lighter components throughout, including newly developed suspension geometry derived from the McLaren P1, resulting in an increased track of 20mm. Under the skin sits the heavily-revised 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 powertrain from the Coupé sibling, with 675 PS (666 bhp) delivered at 7,100 rpm and 700Nm (516lb ft) available between 5,000-6,500rpm, which catapults the Spider from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 2.9 seconds.
