McLaren 675 LT Spider spotted

Spy images of the McLaren 675 LT Spider confirm the convertible has been given the go ahead.  The new model will join McLaren’s ‘Super Series’ in 2016.

The 675 LT Spider will receive a hard-top folding roof, as seen on other McLaren convertibles.  It will come with the same 3.8-litre, twin-turbo V8 engine, delivering an impressive 666bhp and 526lb ft of torque.  In keeping with McLaren’s standard practice, the convertible will match its Coupe counterpart almost perfectly in performance, so can be expected to deliver the 675LT’s top speed of 205mph and 0-62mph in around 2.9 seconds.

The convertible will feature the same lightweight, carbon fibre parts as the Coupe, with the reshaped front bumper and ‘Long tail’ remaining the same.

UK pricing is expected to be around £280,000.
