UK Premiere: The McLaren Spider 675LT
|   Wednesday, December 23, 2015
McLaren presented the roofless 675LT supercar version, which received the Spider particle. This car, according to representatives of the British brand will be the most powerful roadster ever produced by them.

Because all 675LT copies have already been sold, McLaren fans will enjoy a new limited series of the dynamic model, but now as the convertible 675LT Spider.
The design of the McLaren 675LT Spider is similar to the coupe except for the folding roof, 19 inch forged rims for the front axle and 20 inch in the rear shod with P Zero Trofeo R tires, but with exclusivist Solis paint too.


Like the coupe, the car in question is equipped with a twin turbo 3.8 liter engine, but here, experts have changed about 50 percent of components. In general, other turbochargers and exhaust system made of titanium are being used. The unit is coupled to a robotized gearbox with two clutches, for a total of 675 hp and 700 Nm of torque.

It is worth mentioning that the centrally positioned V8 twin-turbo engine produces 25 hp and 22 Nm more than the 650S Spider. With a weight of 1.270 kg, the new McLaren 675LT Spider is about 100 kg lighter than the 650S Spider, but it is still 40 kg heavier than the 675LT Coupe.

Weight loss was achieved thanks to the body parts, but also the carcasses seats, which are built from carbon fiber. To decrease the weight of the British supercar, those from McLaren dropped the air conditioning system, but it can be installed back without adding to price instead; it will add about 16 kg more however.

Meanwhile, the new version is 40 kg heavier than the 675LT coupe because of the roof, and the mechanism that actuates it. It can be opened and closed at speeds of up to 30 km / h.

Among the standard features we have a sport suspension with stiffer springs, lightweight aluminum rims, shod in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires, and carbon and ceramics braking mechanisms.

The overall stiffness went up by 27 percent for the front of the car and 63 percent for the rear, thus allowing for about 40 percent more downforce compared to the 650S Spider.


The convertible version accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in the same 2.9 seconds, but the coupe loses 0.2 seconds acceleration going from 0 to 200 km / h, which takes 8.1 seconds. Top speed is a little less - 326 km / h (675LT Coupe - 330 km / h).

As for the exterior colors, it gets the same paint range offered on the coupe, but also the new Silica White, Napier Green, Delta Red and Chicane Grey finishes, as well as the golden Solis color that was made only for this Spider model.

The new McLaren 675LT Spider will be capped at 500 copies and will be released in the summer of 2016 with a price tag of 285,450 pounds (about 395,000 euros or 431,200 dollars).

Until then, this version will be officially presented in March at the Geneva Auto Show.
