British sports car manufacturer McLaren Automotive plans to introduce the 675LT at next week’s Geneva auto show.
The 675LT has been designed for use on the track or on the street, McLaren says. The sleek coupe comes from the factory street legal. It’s the third car in the McLaren lineup.
Powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 rated at 666 hp and a seven-speed transmission, the 675LT will have a top speed of 330kph (205 mph). It will reach 100kph (62 mph) in just 2.9 seconds, McLaren says. The car can reach 200kph (124 mph) in 7.9 seconds.
The lightning-fast acceleration times come from the powerful engine combined with lightweight components. McLaren engineers shaved 220 pounds off the vehicle compared with the current 650S sports coupe. McLaren says the 675LT weighs 1,230kg (2,711 pounds).
McLaren did not say how much the 675LT will cost or how many will be built.
