220 pounds lighter and 25 hp more robust than the 650S, the 675LT was born for the track. Compared to the 650S, the front and rear tracks have been widened by 20mm, and the springs are stiffer all around. Thanks to its revised bodywork and prominent carbon fiber air brake, the vehicle creates 40 percent more downforce as well, and the steering is quicker, too. In fact, compared to the 650S, a third of the parts are either new or modified. According to McLaren, 0 to 60 mph comes in just 2.9 seconds, 0 to 124 mph comes in 7.9 seconds, and top speed is rated at an eye-opening 205 mph. Despite its elemental philosophies, the LT is completely road-legal, and it boasts a multimedia system, air conditioning, and even some Alcantara upholstery covering up the metal bits. The first units are currently being manufactured at the McLaren Production Centre in Woking, England. Unsurprisingly, all of the 500 planned units are already sold out.
