But isn’t a 675 Longtail mostly carbon already? It is, but there’s always room for more. Forty per cent more body parts in fact are in carbon on the MSO car, including A pillars, bonnet, rear deck, side blades, front and rear wings, and the electrically retractable roof and tonneau. Even the fuel filler flap is gloss carbon. What’s not carbon? Beats us.
And if you fancy the same look on your own standard 675 LT? No way, says McLaren, since none of the new parts are retro-fittable.
There aren’t many other changes to the car but one to note is the standard fit of the Track Telemetry pack, which includes three track cameras. In other ways it’s a standard 675LT, complete with 666bhp V8, 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 203mph.
McLaren isn’t talking prices, only telling GRR there is a “significant” increase over the £285,450 of the standard car. First of the 25 specials should be with their owners towards year-end.
