Ultra-Exclusive Carbon Series McLaren 675LT Spider Revealed

Only 25 cars will be produced

McLaren has pulled the wraps off the latest creation of its bespoke division, McLaren Special Operations (MSO). The new Carbon Series 675LT Spider features extensive use of carbon fiber throughout its body and was inspired by the carbon fiber-bodied P1 displayed at the 2016 Geneva auto show.

Like the rest of the McLaren 675LT lineup, weight reduction and improved aerodynamics is the primary focus, and this particular 675LT Spider takes that up another notch. On the exterior, the Carbon Series 675LT Spider features gloss-finished carbon fiber on the front bumper and splitter, front under body, side skirts, side air intakes, lower side air intakes, rear fenders, rear deck, rear bumper, rear diffuser, and on the "Longtail" air brake. The car's retractable hardtop is also made of carbon fiber as is its tonneau, side blades, and fuel filler cap. In total, about 40 percent of the car is made of carbon fiber, which required a significant amount of extra development time for MSO.

Powering the Carbon Series 675LT Spider is a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 with 666 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, the same one found in the standard 675LT Coupe and Spider. The only transmission available is a seven-speed twin-clutch automatic. The 675LT was built as a lightweight, track-ready variant of the 650S.
