The McLaren 600LT got its online reveal last month and now McLaren has confirmed that the car will make its world debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The ccompany has also revealed more information about the hardcore Sports Series model ahead of its much anticipated debut.
We already know that the 600LT will use a revised twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 providing 592 hp (600PS) and 457 lb-ft (620Nm) of torque. The car will be 100 kg lighter than 570S Coupé, with a dry weight of 1,247 kg. On a car with the same chassis as the 570S but with more power and less weight, we expect nothing less than extreme performance, and the 600LT doesn’t disappoint. According to newly revealed figures, the track-oriented Sports Series will go from 0-62 mph as fast as a McLaren 675LT at 2.9 seconds (0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds) and will reach 0-124mph in just 8.2 seconds which is 0.2 seconds faster than the 488 GTB, the main rival of the 675LT.
McLaren 600LT can specify the MSO Clubsport or MSO Clubsport Pro packs from McLaren Special Operations. The MSO Clubsport Pack, which adds £24,170 to the price of a 600LT features super-lightweight carbon fiber racing seats, carbon fiber roof and fender louvers, carbon fiber gearshift paddles, carbon fiber steering wheel spokes and titanium wheel bolts . The MSO Clubsport Pro Pack which is priced at £28,480 adds an MSO Defined Harness Bar and 6-Point harness to the Clubsport package.
The production of the 600LT will start in October this year and will last for 12 months. So, if you are interested, we would advise you to keep your check book ready.
