McLaren 675LT Spider MSO Carbon Series 1

What do McLaren customers want more of? Carbon-fibre, apparently. Following the successful introduction of the visual carbon fibre bodied P1 hybrid supercar at Geneva earlier this year, McLaren Special Operations (MSO) has now applied the same treatment to the 675LT Spider.

According to the bespoke division of McLaren, only 25 examples of the Carbon Series LT will ever be made, and all of them have been sold. No details on the car’s price tag, but we’d reckon it would have cost buyers a lot more than the standard, 500-unit 675LT Spider.

For the limited-edition model, MSO took the standard carbon-fibre components that are already found on the standard 675LT Spider, and gave them a gloss finish so the weave of the material is made more visible. The electrically-retractable roof and tonneau are also dipped in carbon-fibre, along with the car’s A-pillars, bonnet, rear deck, side blades, front and rear wings, and even the fuel filler cap.

But wait, that’s not all because MSO has also specified the McLaren Track Telemetry pack for the convertible. There are now three track cameras as standard, as well as new front wings that feature functional louvres as those found on the 650S GT3 racer.

MSO says that the Carbon Series LT has around 40% more carbon-fibre parts over the standard car. Unfortunately, those looking for a retro-fit option will be left disappointed. This is due to the fact that the limited-run model had to undergo a significant amount of additional development work.

Motivation is still provided by a 3.8 litre twin-turbo V8 with 675 PS at 7,100 rpm and 700 Nm available between 5,000 to 6,500 rpm. The 0-100 km/h sprint takes just 2.9 seconds, with 200 km/h achieved in 8.1 seconds. Top speed remains unchanged at 326 km/h.
