This McLaren 675LT’s Long Tail (And Nose) Got Shortened A Bit …

McLaren usually done 500 examples of a 675LT, and another 500 of the Spider version that followed. And with so few made, they’re still trade hands for large bucks on a used market. This one, though, is now adult for auction on Copart, with behest (as we went to press) carrying reached only $65,500. But as you’ve substantially guarded by now, there’s a bit of a catch.

Hardcore as it is, this Longtail McLaren was apparently a bit too most appurtenance for a driver, who appears to have crashed it flattering hard. Just how hard, we couldn’t say. Maybe there’s constructional repairs to a CO monocoque (which would be really costly to repair), or maybe it’s some-more cosmetic. If a latter’s a case, shopping and repair it could net one heck of a supercar bargain.

The 675LT, for those unfamiliar, was a some-more focused chronicle of a 650S that’s given been transposed by the new 720S in McLaren’s mid-range Super Series. It packs a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 promulgation 666 horsepower (496 kW) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque to a back wheels by a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Lightened and stiffened up, it was quoted to scurry to 62 mph (100 kmh) from a delay in underneath 3 seconds, run a quarter-mile (402 meters) in 10.3 seconds, and tip out during 205 mph (330 km/h). More to a point, with only 4.34 pounds (1.97 kg) for a energy of any equine to motivate, it was a fastest prolongation highway automobile ever to turn a Top Gear exam lane (at a time), clocking a 1:13.7 path time to only hardly hit a Pagani Huayra off a perch.

All 1,000 examples (between a coupe and a roadster) have prolonged given been sole out, and the new 600LT might be no easier to get your hands on. So this might paint a heck of an event – if we get your bid in before a auction closes today. If it’s already sealed by a time we see this, though, that’s substantially all for a best. Because we could never in good demur suggest shopping a automobile steer unseen, regardless of a advertised condition.
