The Geneva Motor Show in March will see the global premiere of the McLaren 675LT, and the rebirth of the ‘Longtail’ model to the company. It will join the current 650S and 625C models currently available.
With the 675LT, McLaren will revive the ‘Longtail’ name that was on what the supercar manufacturer describes as one of the purest GT sportscars of all time, the McLaren F1 GTR ‘Longtail’.
The road legal supercar will focus on having optimised aerodynamics, increased downforce, driver engagement, increased power and reduced weight, embodying the ‘Longtail’ philosophy.
The 675LT will also join the newly named McLaren Super Series alongside the 650S and the Asia-only 625C models, with its number ‘675’ denoting the power produced by the new model, which equates to an amazing 666bhp, making it the most powerful model in the Super Series. It will also be the quickest model as well as the purest, and has been described as a modern day interpretation of the McLaren F1 GTR ‘Longtail’ that made its debut in sportscars during the 1997 season.
Further details and performance figures of the coupe model will be available on the weeks running up to the Geneva Motor Show, before becoming available for delivery later this year.
The much-anticipated McLaren P1TM GTR will also be premiered at the show.
