The 675LT spider – only the second McLaren to ever wear the LT badge following the worldwide success of its Coupe sibling – is a limited edition model restricted to just 500 examples. Mirroring the 657LT Coupe, it embodies the ethos of the Le Mans winning 1997 McLaren F1 GTR ‘Longtail’, focusing on five key characteristics synonymous with the LT title: lightweight, optimised aerodynamics, increased power, track-focused dynamics and driver engagement. A retractable roof adds further excitement, making the 675LT spider the fastest, most focused and most exhilarating open-top McLaren ever.
Over 50 percent of the parts are unique to the 675LT Spider’s 3.8 litre twin turbo V8 engine in comparison to its predecessor, the 650S. Such significant changes ensured increased levels of torque, drivability and powering lead to the engine unit to receive a new, unique code of M838TL. Producing a striking series of figures when it comes to performance – 675hp (666bhp) and 700Nm (516ft-lb), the 675LT Spider reaches 0-62mph in an eye-watering time of just 2.9 seconds. The seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox is twice as fast and advancements incorporate 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 delivery system.
McLaren’s carbon fibre MonoCell chassis provides the 675LT Spider with an unrivalled combination of lightness, safety and stiffness – attributes common amongst all models in the McLaren’s Super Series range. That being said, the obsession with McLaren’s weight saving unlocks a further reduction of 60KG when compared with the 650S; from lightweight carbon fibre racing seats to reducing the windscreen thickness by 1mm, it is evident that no opportunity to save weight was overlooked whilst producing this masterpiece.

Meticulously hand painted in an exquisitely rich shade of deep blue, named by McLaren as Sapphire Black, this 675LT Spider exudes an imposing malevolence. The track focused, angular lines created with every bit of surgical-like precision makes for a truly spectacular visual impact. Blemish free, the paintwork emits a deep glossy finish and is presented as new.
The 675LT Spider’s race-inspired front splitter is now 80 percent larger, whilst the most distinctive feature, the ‘Longtail Airbrake’ has been increased by some 50 percent; both additions enable increased downforce by an enormous 40 percent.
This exceptional, untouched example remains as new from factory; so much so that the protective plastic film has yet to be removed from the central touchscreen.
The driver focused interior intensifies the thrill of driving the 675LT Spider, leaving no stone unturned in the quest to optimise performance without compromising driver engagement. From the liberal use of weight-saving Alcantara and carbon fibre throughout the cabin, to the luxuries of navigation, climate control, media ports, and a central touchscreen, the 675LT Spider has perhaps the perfect balance between drivability and performance.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
McLaren have taken its most potent 3.8 litre twin turbo V8 engine and carefully improved upon it, unleashing an additional 25bhp and 22Nm for a thrilling total of 666bhp and 700Nm, and a class-leading 541bhp per tonne.
The 675LT Spider outlets a uniquely rich and aggressive sound, thanks to its new lightweight titanium exhaust system with distinctive twin exhaust outlets, and the ignition cut in Sport mode. Of course, the ability to have the roof down only enhances the soundtrack as it fills the cabin at every opportunity.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The unmarked, Ultra Lightweight 10-spoke alloy wheels are wrapped in Pirelli P-ZERO Trofeo R tyres, designed for extreme track focus. The 675LT Spider benefits from a carbon fibre braking system, greatly increasing stopping power and longevity compared with conventional brake systems.
