McLaren 675LT is Already Sold Out
You wouldn’t associate McLaren with doing things slowly, but we didn’t anticipate how fast it would sell out of the 675LT.The British racing team turned exotic automaker revealed the 675LT as a longer, more hardcore version of the 650S at the Geneva Motor Show this past March. At the time it announced that only 500 examples would be made. Now just two months later, McLaren spokesman Wayne Bruce confirmed to Autoblog that the entire production run has already sold out.
“Around half the buyers” who placed their orders for the 675LT, Bruce tells us, “are new to the brand.” The other half, by extension, are existing McLaren customers who already own (or have owned) a 12C, 650S or P1.
The 675LT sits in the company’s new Super Series alongside the aforementioned 650S and the more accessible Asian-market 625C. With 666 horsepower on tap from McLaren’s signature 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8, the Longtail will rocket to 62 in under three seconds en route to a top speed of 205 miles per hour.
It comes exclusively in fixed-roof-coupe form and retails for £259,500. That’s equivalent to about $400,000 at current exchange rates, and comes out to about the same (in either currency) as what Lamborghini charges for an Aventador.
