The McLaren 600LT Will Cost $240,000 In America


In terms of pricing, the McLaren 600LT slots in between 570S and 720S.

A couple of weeks ago, McLaren unveiled its most savage Sports Series car yet: the 600LT. Powered by the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine as the 570S, the 600LT produces a hefty 592 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. It's hard to believe a car with nearly 600 horsepower on tap is considered "entry-level" in McLaren's range. We only knew the UK pricing when the car was first unveiled, but McLaren has now confirmed the 600LT will set you back a cool $240,000 in North America.

To put that price in perspective, the 600LT costs $50,000 more than the 570S, which starts at $191,000, but is still cheaper than the 720S, which will set you back $288,845. The 600LT’s asking price also positions it between the $187,500 Porsche 911 GT3 RS and $293,200 GT2 RS. Equipping the MSO Clubsport pack adds another $29,370, bringing the price up to $269,370. You can also add the Clubsport Pro pack for another $34,600, which bumps the cost up to $274,600. Both packs make the car even lighter to create the ultimate 600LT with carbon fiber race seats, extended gearshift paddles, carbon fiber exterior elements and titanium wheel bolts among other upgrades.

The more expensive Pro package includes a harness bar and six-point harness for track usage. Alternatively, the lightweight seats are offered as a standalone option for $6,060, or you can upgrade the standard 10-spoke wheels to a five-spoke design for an extra $4,950. In terms of performance, the 600LT isn’t too far behind the 720S. Thanks to its ultra-light exterior bringing the curb weight down to 2,749 lbs, the 600LT will sprint to 62 mph in just 2.8 seconds and top out at 204 mph, while the 720S does the same sprint in 2.7 seconds and hits a top speed of 212 mph.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, while carbon-ceramic brake discs provide considerable stopping power. To us, $240,000 seems reasonable for all that performance. You even get a free day of driver training from McLaren to help you push the extreme 600LT to the limit.
