McLaren 675LT is 220 Pounds Lighter Than 650S

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 2/25/2015 Karla Sanchez

We already know so much about the upcoming McLaren 675LT before its grand reveal at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. We know that it benefits from new turbos and lighter components, and that it will produce 666 hp thanks to McLaren's ubiquitous 3.8-liter V-8. But what we didn't know until now is how much lighter it is compared to the 650S or its estimated acceleration times and top speed.

McLaren keeps divulging more and more information about the 675LT, this time revealing that the supercar can rocket from 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds and that top speed is pegged at 205 mph. That's not all the automaker has revealed about the 675LT, though. The new car shed 220 pounds compared to other models in the McLaren Super Series, including the 650S and 650S Spider, and while its airbrake is 50 percent bigger, it's lighter thanks to carbon fiber construction. The lightweight material is also used extensively on the 650LT's body panels, front splitter, rear bumper, diffuser, and side sills. All in all, 33 percent of the 650LT's parts are different from the 650S on which it is based.

Buyers will be able to choose from five 650LT flavors, or "'By McLaren' hero specifications." Four colors unique to the 675LT will be available, though the signature McLaren Orange will also be on the options list. Inside, bucket seats are swathed in carbon fiber and Alcantara, while the paint color chosen for the exterior will also complement the interior.

There's still so much more to learn about the McLaren 675LT, all of which will come to light during the car's grand reveal at next week's 2015 Geneva motor show.
