McLaren 675LT

Η McLaren έδωσε ένα νέο teaser video της 675LT, της σκληροπυρηνικής έκδοσης της 650S η θα παρουσιαστεί στην έκθεση της Γενεύης τον ερχόμενο Μάρτιο.


Διαθέτει μεγαλύτερο πίσω μέρος -με την McLaren να αποτίει με το μοντέλο αυτό φόρο τιμής στην F1 GTR Long Tail του 1997- χαμηλότερη ανάρτηση, επιθετικό bodykit με μεγάλη πίσω αεροτομή σαν αυτή της αγωνιστικής 650s GT3 και νέα εξάτμιση από τιτάνιο με διπλές απολήξεις.

Μηχανικά ο V8 twin-turbo 3,8-λίτρων κινητήρας παράγει 675 άλογα με 700 Nm ροπής, με το αυτοκίνητο να ζυγίζει 100 κιλά λιγότερα από την 650S και αναμένεται να βγει σε μόλις 250 μονάδες στη παραγωγή. Η 675LT παράγει 40% περισσότερη κάθετη αεροδυναμική πίεση λόγω της μακριάς ουράς και θα είναι διαθέσιμη μόνο ως coupe.

AERODYNAMICALLY OPTIMISED, THE McLAREN 675LT STAYS TRUE TO THE ICON

  • Active ‘Longtail’ Airbrake contributes to a 40 percent increase in overall downforce
  • 700 Nm (516 lb ft) produced by a heavily revised 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 featuring lightweight components and new turbos
  • Bespoke titanium crossover exhaust ensures optimised performance. See, and hear, it at: http://youtu.be/tOl7gZ8bQdY

The 675LT, the first McLaren in nearly two decades to wear the LT – or ‘Longtail’ – name, will stay true to the spirit of its iconic predecessor with aerodynamically optimised, dramatically enhanced styling that results in 40 percent more downforce than the 650S which it will sit alongside in the McLaren Super Series.  A total power output of 675PS (666bhp), and torque figure of 700 Nm (516 lb ft) plus a focus on weight saving will ensure an electrifying, engaging and visceral driving experience.

These output figures are produced by a heavily revised 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 featuring lightweight components and new turbos. A controlled torque delivery of 600Nm (443 lb ft) ensures optimised acceleration and traction from a standing start in first gear, rising to the full 700Nm available from 5,500-6,500 rpm, through each of the other gears. A redesigned crossover exhaust system, bespoke to the 675LT, is formed from lightweight titanium. Two circular titanium exhaust pipes exit centrally through exposed bodywork below the rear ‘Longtail’ Airbrake. The new system is designed to optimise performance and reduce weight – another pillar of the LT ethos.

Available as a coupé only, the 675LT will join the core range of McLaren supercars later this year as a more track focused alternative to the established 650S Coupé and Spider. Together, they form the newly named McLaren Super Series which sits above the recently announced Sports Series in the range.

Further details of the McLaren 675LT, including its startling performance figures, will be released with the car’s global debut at the 85th International Geneva Motor Show, on Tuesday 3 March 2015.
