Official: McLaren 675LT “Long Tail” Will Debut In Geneva With 666 HP

Lighter, and more powerful than the 650S, the all-new McLaren 675LT will debut in March.

McLaren has officially confirmed the rumors that its new supercar will be called the 675LT. Lighter, and more powerful than the 650S, the new model is named after the legendary ‘Longtail’ F1 GTR racer and will debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show alongside the range-topping P1 GTR. Sitting above the 12C and 650S, the 675 in the name references the car’s 675PS, with output standing at a “devilish” 666 horsepower. McLaren says the 675LT is "the lightest, the quickest, the purest version in the range."

That range is called the “Super Series” which will sit above the recently announced Sports Series. The new model will come in coupe bodystyle only, and is targeting the likes of the Ferrari 458 Speciale and Porsche 911 GT3 RS with “optimized aerodynamics, increased downforce, driver engagement, power and reduced weight.”

Essentially a track-focused road car, McLaren says more information about the 675LT will be released as we approach the car’s unveiling in March.
