McLaren 675LT | It’s Still Relevant for 2020?

Of course, it is. We are talking about a Supercar here. Even though this is the product that was released three years ago, speaking about performance, design, price, and comfort, it is still relatable for you, Supercar lover, to drive it in 2020.

Moreover, the classic nuance, even though it is only three years old, adds more value to this car. Therefore, it’s worth having, driving, and loving.  

The Design

Maybe, these are the elements that make you doubt if this car is still a good choice for 2020. So, take a look at its appearance. According to McLaren itself, this car’s design was inspired by McLaren F1 GTR “Longtail”. Now, can you think anything but cool, if a car was designed by using the F1 car as the inspiration? Therefore, the design will last longer. It won’t lose its beauty and coolness.

The design itself incorporates many amazing parts you might never see on other fast cars. For example, McLaren uses carbon fiber bodywork to create a bigger downforce, 40% bigger than other Super Series. It is similar to the F1 car, which also affects the speed and performance.

Furthermore, the carbon fiber used in 675LT is the MonoCell best creation, providing the strongest and lighting carbon fiber material. Thanks to this material, McLaren can cut down the weight of this car up to 100 kg (220 lbs). As you can see, the design and appearance are the best. So, you don’t need to worry about its look, as it will look great, even today.

The Specification and Performance

Supercar is all about how it runs on the road. Even though it has a nice and cool exterior, if it runs light a slug, it only damages its status as Supercar. How about McLaren 675LT? First of all, let’s take a look at its specifications, especially its speed. Supercar means a fast car. So, this car should have the speed that can be considered faster than the ordinary car.

675LT can run from 0-62 mph in just 2.9 seconds. We can even stretch it more, for 0-124 mph, which only need 7.9 seconds. This car is still using the McLaren M838 TL twin-turbocharged V8 engine. However, half of the components of this engine have been changed. Or, maybe it is more precise if we call it, it has been upgraded.

This engine now can produce 666 hp and 516-lb ft of torque. Then, the designs that give it more downforce boost the ability to create that kind of acceleration. As for top speed, this beautiful car can run up to 205 mph on the smooth road.

Another thing that you also need to know is the handling. McLaren doesn’t seem to joke about this matter. They did a lot of improvement and changes to create the best experience for its driver.

Using the McLaren P1 chassis setup, McLaren adjusts it with different settings for its lightweight suspension hardware. This new adjustment makes the steering response 10 times faster than the Super Series. With this setting, you get precision and agility.
