McLaren 675LT Boasts 666HP

Video and more specs emerge for track-focused super car ahead of 2015 Geneva Motor Show reveal

McLaren has released more details on the upcoming 675LT that will debut at the Geneva show in March. Along with a new teaser video that gets us excited about this car's exhaust note, the automaker has given us a clearer picture of the capabilities of the new model, which boasts 40-percent more downforce than the 650S from which it is based.

The 675LT is powered by McLaren’s ubiquitous 3.8 liter V-8, which has been massaged to make 666 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, giving the 675LT a 25 hp and 16 lb-ft bump over the “normal” 650S, the company says. This power boost is the result of major engine tuning revisions, including new turbos and lighter components.

McLaren developed a new titanium exhaust system that will be exclusive to the 675LT. It exits the exhaust through exposed rear bodywork, just underneath a new rear airbrake, and it contributes to an overall reduction in the car’s weight.

The 675LT is set to premiere alongside the “production-intent” McLaren P1 GTR, a track-only variant of the P1 hypercar, at the Geneva auto show in March. Expect more photos and performance information to trickle out of McLaren leading up to the show. For now, check out the teaser video below and catch an earful of the new 675LT’s exhaust sound.
