McLaren has betrothed a new Longtail denote will join a lineup soon. For those who don’t pronounce Woking, that means another iteration of a brand’s high-performance special-edition theme, that is named after a epic F1-based Longtail (LT) competition cars from a 1990s. Recent LTs embody the 650S-based 675LT and the 570S-based 600LT. Based on a teaser picture McLaren supposing of a latest LT, we can see that it will be a 600LT Spider.
How can we tell? The cutlines in a roof pillars manifest on a right side of a picture above are an denote that a LT is a convertible, and a back buttresses compare those of the unchanging 570S Spider. The upward-exiting empty outlets are passed ringers for those on a 600LT coupe, as are a vast back wing and a rest of a back deck.
McLaren has already finished a 675LT Spider, so there’s fashion for a hard-core roofless sports automobile in a lineup. Based on what’s famous about the coupe we’ve already driven, here’s what we can design from a 600LT Spider: a 592-hp twin-turbocharged V-8 engine (up 30 horses over a 570S), framework upgrades for additional lane performance, and, yes, a longer tail (translation: some-more back wing and aero enhancements).
While McLaren hasn’t given specific numbers, it says a 600LT coupe is a low-production model. Just 500 675LT coupes and 500 675LT Spiders will built, incompatible a few dozen special editions, and we design 600LT prolongation numbers will be somewhat higher. The 600LT coupe starts during only over $240,000, and a new Spider chronicle should authority a cost during slightest $10,000 higher.
Final sum are scheduled to dump Jan 16, so stay tuned.
