|McLaren is showcasing the recently ceased production McLaren P1 and the 675LT Spider at the Geneva Motor Show. The two Supercars are amongst the full three-tier model line-up, including the 650S GT3.|
The McLaren P1 is presented with a full visual carbon fiber body which has been hand-laid, with a bespoke ‘Lio Blue’ tinted lacquer. The Geneva Motor Show marks the first time the full visual carbon fiber body conversion has been displayed publicly after it was made available to McLaren P1 customers earlier this year. Other key upgrades completed by MSO (McLaren Special Operations) include a gloss black finish to the wheels, an extensive retrim of the interior with carbon black Alcantara and contrasting blue stitching, and a 24-carat gold exhaust heatshield in a homage to the McLaren F1.
Making its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the 675LT Spider is limited to only 500 examples worldwide, with each variant already accounted for. The team at MSO has developed a one-off example of the track-honed Spider finished in Ceramic Grey from the MSO Defined range with even greater levels of carbon fiber than the standard version. The satin carbon fiber retractable hardtop and tonneau can be operated at speeds up to 40 km/h (25mph) and saves 1kg, while the front wings include carbon fiber louvres. The ‘Longtail’ Airbrake is finished in body color on the upper surface with the lower plane shows the natural carbon fiber weave, while the aerodynamic front bumper end plates, side skirts, side intakes and rear bumper are also finished in visual carbon.
A pair of black Alcantara trimmed racing seats include contrasting Xenon Yellow contrast stitch with the rotary Handling and Powertrain controls on the Active Dynamics Panel finished in Solis, a unique color to the 675LT Spider. The gold detailing is also visible through the exposed engine bay with a 24-carat gold heatshield around the titanium exhaust system.
Performance for the 675LT Spider by MSO remains unchanged, with the 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 engine generating 675 PS (666bhp) and 700 Nm (516lb ft) of torque. These figures accelerate the 675LT Spider from zero to 100km/h (62mph) in 2.9 seconds and on to a top speed of 326km/h (204mph).
