McLaren 675LT confirmed for Geneva image

McLaren will officially pull the wraps off the body of the 675LT supercar during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, which will be opening its gates in a couple of months.

The McLaren 650S is getting ready to receive a hotter version, at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, as a report is indicating. According to the guys from Autocar, the model in question will be called the 675LT and it will be more powerful than the current 650S Coupe. The supercar is believed to pay homage to the 1997 F1 GTR and it should be getting an elongated rear end and an upgraded 3.8 liter V8 twin turbo engine under its hood, which is capable of producing a total output of 675 HP (496 kW) and possibly some more torque.

Besides these modifications, the brand new McLaren 675LT should also drop some weight, up to 100 kg (220 lbs), and this should translate into improved handling and fuel consumption. Rumor has it that the “new” supercar will be track-focused, but this hasn’t been confirmed yet. Production of it should stay limited to just 250 units, so expect an expensive price list. As you probably already know by now, the McLaren 650S has replaced the MP4-12C and it is offered in two body styles, coupe and roadster, with a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Power is coming from a 3.8L twin turbo V8 engine, with 650 PS (478 kW / 641 HP) and 680 Nm (500 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox.
