Note to the Sith Lord Darth Vader, McLaren Special Operations, the bespoke division of McLaren Automotive, has announced the creation of the MSO Carbon Series 675LT. Strictly limited to 25 units globally and based on the 675LT Spider, the Carbon Series LT has been produced in response to requests from McLaren customers from LA to NY & from London to Dubai.
Staying true to the ‘Longtail’ styling, established by the McLaren F1 in the late 1990s, the MSO Carbon Series LT has been developed with a focus on light weight and optimized aerodynamic performance. Applying gloss carbon fiber to the entire body of the car further extends its appeal to bring a more on point styling to the existing 675LT Spider body, showcasing the skills of the McLaren bespoke division.
As with the 675LT Spider, the front bumper with larger splitter and end plates, front under body, side skirts, side intakes, lower side intakes, rear bodyside lower, rear fenders, rear deck, rear bumper, diffuser and ‘Longtail’ Airbrake are all carbon fiber but with a gloss finish revealing the inherent weave of the material. In addition, the MSO Carbon Series LT is fitted with a gloss finished carbon fiber electrically retractable roof and tonneau, A-pillars, bonnet and rear deck, side blades, complete front and rear fenders, and even fuel filler flap. The front fenders also feature GT3-inspired functional louvers. The McLaren Track Telemetry pack, which includes three track cameras, is fitted as standard equipment.
The MSO Carbon Series LT is only the third model to wear the LT badge. The first, the 675LT Coupe, arrived last year resurrecting the ‘Longtail’ name after nearly 20 years. The 675LT Coupe focused on light weight, enhanced aerodynamics, increased power and track-focused dynamics, and this limited-run model quickly sold out before the first deliveries commenced. Sharing these key characteristics, McLaren Automotive added the most focused, fastest and exhilarating open top model to ever wear a McLaren badge with the 675LT Spider, further strengthening the ‘LT’ brand.
Production of the MSO Carbon Series LT begins this fall with first deliveries expected before the end of 2016 and yes we are sorry to say that all 25 that will be built are already sold. cars.mclaren.com
