McLaren Special Operations crafts carbon fibre-themed 675LT Spider as its fastest-ever street legal convertible
McLaren Special Operations (MSO) is to pay a carbon fibre tribute to the McLaren P1™ which recently ceased production, by unveiling a bespoke version of the 675LT Spider – McLaren’s fastest-ever street legal car.
Making its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the 675LT Spider is limited to only 500 examples worldwide, with each model already sold.
Performance for the 675LT Spider by MSO remains unchanged, with the 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 engine generating an epic 666bhp and 516lb ft of torque. These figures accelerate the 675LT Spider from zero to 62mph in a mind-blowing 2.9 seconds and zero to 124mph in 8.1 seconds, with a top speed of 204mph.
The satin carbon fibre retractable hardtop and tonneau can be operated at speeds up to 40km/h (25mph) and saves 1kg, while the front wings include carbon fibre louvres. The ‘Longtail’ Airbrake is finished in body colour on the upper surface with the lower plane shows the natural carbon fibre weave, while the aerodynamic front bumper end plates, side skirts, side intakes and rear bumper are also finished in visual carbon.
Inside, a pair of black Alcantara® trimmed racing seats include contrasting Xenon Yellow contrast stitch with the rotary Handling and Powertrain controls on the Active Dynamics Panel finished in Solis, a unique colour to the 675LT Spider. The gold detailing is also visible through the exposed engine bay with a 24-carat gold heat-shield around the titanium exhaust system.
