McLaren will revive the legendary ‘Longtail’ name given to one of the purest GT sports cars of all time, the McLaren F1 GTR ‘Longtail’, for the launch of the new McLaren 675LT at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Deliveries will begin later this year in coupe body style only, at a price that has yet to be announced.
This road-legal supercar will embody the ‘Longtail’ ethos with a focus on performance-optimized aerodynamics, increased downforce, driver engagement, power and reduced weight. It will join the core range of McLaren supercars alongside the existing 650S and Asia-only 625C to form the newly named McLaren Super Series which sits above the recently announced Sports Series in the range hierarchy.
In line with the convention started by the 650S, the number 675 denotes the power produced by the 675LT’s engine in PS -- the output equating to 666 horsepower. This figure makes the 675LT the most powerful offering in the Super Series.
All we have for now is this picture, so don't miss the official unveiling in Geneva!
