McLaren already confirmed the P1 GTR for the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, but the British manufacturer has another surprise for us, which will be unveiled at the same show. According to an official press release, McLaren will also introduce the 675LT at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, a model that joins the existing C and S range hierarchy.
As expected the LT model designation stands for ‘Longtail’ and McLaren says that it will be its lightest, quickest and purest version in the range. So, once again, the Longtail name is revived and the new 675LT will be a modern day interpretation of the McLaren F1 GTR ‘Longtail’.
As we said, the 675LT will join the core range of Mclaren supercars alongside the existing 650S and Asia-only 625C. Just like on the other morels, the number 675 denotes the power produced by the 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 petrol engine, which makes it the most powerful model in its range.
“The iconic Longtail name made its debut during the 1997 season of sportscar racing, and saw a legendary model from McLaren on the grids around the world evolve into the most efficient race-focused version seen to-date.” said the press release.
