Since some months ago, everything pointed to that it was going to develop a convertible version McLaren 675LT. And the signing of Woking finally presents this highly anticipated vehicle, which receives the name of McLaren 675LT Spider. After the coupe version, will be the second denomination Long Tail (of the saga) and will follow the same concept, based on the 650S but with more power, less weight and aerodynamics revised.
In the (aesthetic follows in the footsteps of his brother fixed roof. Account with a new front splitter carbon-fiber air inlets larger, side skirts and a behind that integrates the dual output of the tube sports exhaust, which is made of titanium. It also has the airbrake down, which is 50% larger than in other models of the brand.
As was to be expected, you will use a retractable hard top that can be opened at speeds up to 30 km/h. We also have to talk about the wheels alloy ultra light that are 19 inches in front and 20 rear and fit the tires exclusive Pirelli P Zero Trophy R. This model seeks the maximum lightness and left in a total weight of 1,270 kg, which means 100 less than the 650S Spider.
This means that it is only 40 kg heavier than the 675LT coupe. In part it is thanks to such details as the sport seats in carbon fiber or your cabin spartan, that eliminates all unnecessary elements. For example, removes the air-conditioning system, although the latter may be requested by the customer without additional cost, but adding to the vehicle 16 kg of weight.
In the (mechanical maintains the same engine V8 biturbo engine of 3.8 liters that suffered quite a few modifications such as new turbochargers, cylinder heads, revised, and exhaust manifolds modified. You get the same 675 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque, to be a step above the 650S that takes 25 hp and 22 Nm.
All this power coupled with its low weight, will serve to accelerate 0-100 km/h in 2,9 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h in 8,1 seconds, only three tenths below that of the coupe. Its maximum speed is 326 km/h, four below his brother fixed roof. The suspension has also been revised and is more sporty, thanks to a spring more rigid.
In the case of the 675LT Coupe total production ran out quickly. For the McLaren 675LT Spider repeats the story and its production will also be limited to 500 units. The exclusivity does not come cheap and this vehicle will have a starting price in the Uk, 285.540 pounds (about 400,000 euros). The first deliveries to be made from summer of 2016.
