McLaren 675LT Gets Iconic F1 GTR Longtail Livery


Just the paint job took 800-hours to complete.

The McLaren Special Operations team have produced some impressive one-off custom builds in the past and its latest creation adds a nostalgic nod to its racing heritage. The modern-day Super Series 675LT was inspired by the successful F1 GTR ‘Longtail’ racer that drove to a class victory and second overall in the 1997 24 Hours of Le Mans. One 675LT owner wanted to take it one step further and asked MSO to create a road-going homage to this iconic racer.

The 675LT you see in these images is the work of 1,000 hours, 800 of which were dedicated to the paintwork alone. Mimicking the 1997 Gulf-Davidoff GTC team McLaren F1 GTR ‘Longtail’, the 675LT also features louvered front wings a roof scoop upgrade and carbon fiber airbrake from the MSO options list. The bespoke treatment continues to the interior with racing seats covered in Carbon Black Alcantara and various trim featuring contrasting orange finishes. When it was introduced in 2015, the 675LT was the most extreme Super Series model on offer. Offering 40% more downforce and weighing 220 pounds less than the already rapid 650S, its 666 hp gave the 675LT sub 3-second 0-60 mph times and much improved track ability.
