At the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, McLaren launched the 675LT, a modified version of the 650S that paid homage to the F1 "Longtail." Slightly longer than the 650S, revised aerodynamically, and equipped with a more powerful engine, the 675LT was limited to only 500 units and became a hit, selling out in just two months after its official debut. Although the original "Longtail" wasn’t offered in a drop-top configuration, McLaren went ahead and chopped the roof off the 675LT in order to give enthusiasts a more powerful and exclusive option to the already exhilarating 650S Spider.
Set to go on sale next year, the 675LT Spider will find its way to customers starting summer 2016, most likely as a 2017 model in the U.S.. Production will commence as soon as McLaren builds all 500 675LTs. The 675LT Spider is the seventh member of the Super Series family, which already includes the 650S, 625C, 650S Le Mans, and the track-only 650S GT3.
As expected, the convertible shares most of its exterior design with the coupe, while the drivetrain is identical. Although heavier than the coupe, the 675LT Spider is just as fast, being quicker than the newly-launched Ferrari 488 GTB.
