There are few names in the automotive world that can truly rival McLaren. The McLaren brand has its roots deep in racing, and you can get that racing pedigree on the street. The McLaren 570S Spider was a new take on an old McLaren formula, and though it was loved by many, enthusiasts clamored for a “longtail” version of this supercar. Enter the McLaren 600LT Spider. The LT stands for longtail, and this ridiculous convertible is ready to propel you into automotive nirvana.
If you want to get behind the wheel of a new McLaren such as the 600LT Spider in the Chicago area, then you can rely on McLaren Chicago. In fact, you can check out our new McLaren inventory right now by clicking the link below. Otherwise, keep reading to learn more about the McLaren 600LT Spider and all the performance it has to offer.
With DNA from both the McLaren 570S and the legendary McLaren F1 GTR “Longtail”, you know this spider brings the heat. Its rear-mounted engine is nothing short of a powerhouse with 3.8-liters of displacement and twin-turbos ensuring you have all the power that you need on tap.
It’s a V8 engine that utilizes a flat-plane crankshaft and a dry-sump oil delivery system just like many racecars. This V8 engine produces 592 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough power to leave most supercars in the dust.
All of these performance figures lead to a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) time of 2.9 seconds. Say McLaren twice, and you’ll get an idea of the time it takes for this beast to go from 0 to highway speed. Getting this car from 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) takes just 8.4 seconds. The top speed is a screamingly fast 201 mph with the roof closed.
With a fixed rear wing, rear deck-lid-mounted exhaust ports, side air intakes, and a liberal use of carbon fiber throughout, this aerodynamic machine will feel more like a jet fighter than something that was made for the street or the track.
