McLaren has recently unveiled an update to their current lineup – the 2016 McLaren 675LT. This car is an upgraded version of their 650S model, it is more track oriented, than for the road. The company has announced that the 2016 McLaren 675LT will be limited edition – just 500 units will be manufactured. Due to its popularity and price tag, the car will be sold out in matter of minutes.
Exterior of 2016 McLaren 675LT
On the outside, the 2016 McLaren 675LT is fairly similar to its sibling. The interesting thing that the “LT” in the name of this car is short for “long tail”, however, the 2016 McLaren 675LT is just 1.5 inches longer than the 650S.
2016 McLaren 675LT still looks very aggressive and sporty and has some really unique features – from scissor doors to exhaust pipes that are located in the upper part of the rear end. The only thing that confuses is that “long tail” name, while the car is really not that much longer than its sibling.
McLaren 675 LT Interior
There has been no change to the interior of the 2016 McLaren 675LT, which is practically the same like the one in 650S. The whole cabin is covered in suede and has that sporty look and feel.
The equipment that is available with the 650S is available with this model, while 10-speaker Meridian audio system, parking camera and front and back parking sensor are available as part of “CF interior package”.
McLaren 675LT Engine
The engine in the 2016 McLaren 675LT is the same as the one in 650S – the 3.8l V8 Twin Turbo, however, the engine has been finely tuned and now produces around 675 horsepower (this is how it got its name – 675LT) and around 500 lb-ft of torque. The car comes with seven speed dual clutch automatic transmission and rear wheel drive. The 2016 McLaren 675LT is able to go from 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds and from 0-120 mph in just 7.9 seconds!

Actually, the whole “carbon fiber package” costs around $11,000.
