McLaren Special Operations, the bespoke division of McLaren Automotive, has announced the creation of the MSO Carbon Series LT.
Strictly limited to 25 units globally – all already sold – and based on the 675LT Spider, the Carbon Series LT has been produced in response to requests from McLaren customers captivated by the visual carbon fibre bodied McLaren P1 displayed recently at the International Geneva Motor Show.
Under the gloss carbon fibre skin of the MSO Carbon Series LT sits the heavily-revised 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 powertrain from its Coupé sibling, ensuring performance figures are worthy of the LT badge.
The power output and torque figures remain unchanged, with 666bhp delivered at 7,100rpm and 516lb/ft available between 5,000-6,500rpm.
Acceleration from 0-62mph takes just 2.9 seconds, and 124mph is achieved in 8.1 seconds. Controlled torque delivery in first gear manages torque to 443lb/ft to ensure maximum acceleration, and minimising wheel slip. Top speed is 203mph.
Production begins this autumn with first deliveries expected before the end of 2016.
