Don’t let the idyllic beauty of McLaren’s latest work of art fool you. Behind the polished exterior of the 600LT lies the pulsating heart of a demon, exuding nothing but raw confidence and delivering giddy thrills to anyone lucky enough to take the driver’s seat. This car delivers an iconic nod to the McLaren brand, while confidently opening a new chapter in the company’s impeccable history.
The 600LT marks only the fourth car in two decades of McLaren powerhouses to proudly sport the LT – or ‘Longtail’ – moniker. What does this mean for enthusiasts of the brand’s quintessential cars? It means the pairing of the classic, aggressive stance that we remember with enhanced aerodynamics and a higher downforce. This creates an unstoppable monster capable of breaking 0-62 mph in an astonishing 2.9 seconds.
McLaren has officially raised the bar for high performance sports cars everywhere.
Classic Specs, Slimmed for the Track
The 600LT’s astonishing acceleration is attributed not only to a 600PS and 620Nm 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8, but also to a slew of weight-reducing options, allowing the car’s heft to drop as low as 1,247kg. With a power to weight ratio of 481PS per tonne, it is no surprise that the 600LT delivers such an impressive performance.
Suffice it to say that something wicked this way comes, are you ready for it?
