There have been rumors for some time that there would be a convertible version of the McLaren 675LT and now the company has officially taken the wraps off the McLaren 675LT Spider.
The McLaren 675LT Spider features a revised version of 3.8 litre twin turbo engine that is used in the coupe, this gives the car a 0 to 62 miles per hour time of just 2.9 seconds and a massive 666 horsepower.
Under the skin of the 675LT Spider sits the heavily revised 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 powertrain from the coupé sibling, ensuring performance figures are worthy of the LT – or ‘Longtail’ – badge. The power output and torque figures remain unchanged, with 675PS (666bhp) delivered at 7,100rpm and 700Nm (516lb ft) available between 5,000-6,500rpm. The changes to the powertrain saw more than 50 percent of the components replaced to ensure optimised levels of power, torque and drivability. These include new, more efficient turbos, detail design changes to the cylinder heads and exhaust manifolds, new camshaft and lightweight connecting rods, and a faster-flowing fuel pump and delivery system.
The company has announced that they will make just 500 examples of their new 675LT Spider, you can find out more details about this drop top supercar at the link below.
