675LT 2016 McLaren – Drive With Shades
2016 675LT McLaren which has been recently unveiled with its high performance, track-oriented version of its sibling. It’ll be limited to only 500 units, but that should be enough given its high price tag. However, people in British makers headquarters expect the car to be sold out in matter of days.
Functioning, Design & Engine
The same 3.8L twin-turbo V-8 unit that can be found in 650S version as well. However, 675LT gets more horsepower and torque out of it as its figures stand at 666 hp 675 metric hp, hence the name 675LT and 516 lb-ft of torque. Of course, rear-wheel drive is the only natural thing here, and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission comes as natural choice as well. With all these specs and figures, this McLaren is capable of accelerating to 62 mph in 2.9 seconds. Furthermore, its top speed is nailed to 205 mph, and you will hardly need more.

Apart from neat-looking spoiler, there are couple of circular exhaust pipes positioned in the upper part of the tail. That is why emissions don’t have to travel far from the engine to their final destination. There’s plenty of carbon fibers outside, but, needless to say, interior doesn’t fall in behind either.
However, interior is mostly furbished in suede which covers the whole cabin including sporty seats. Very slim middle tunnel gets vertically oriented display and all necessary controls. Even though pricing has been decided in full, base car comes almost bare-boned.
There isn’t any point in discussing its fuel proficiency as there will be none. 675LT will guzzle as much fuel as it wants, and, needless to say, it does need a lot. $349,500 is a base price for the coupe hyper car, but, as we have already mentioned. it can soar over $400,000 very quickly. Super car offers enormous performance and very well executed design, together with comfortable interior. It can easily be considered the best model in its family so far.
