More extreme 600LT might happen in the future

By Faiming_low on 05 Jul 2018 in New model

Attached Image McLaren has just launched its latest Sports Series model, the 600LT. But McLaren is already considering a even faster variant.

According to Motoring which interview the company’s Engineering Chief, Paul Burnham, wants to push for a more hardcore variant.

Likely to be using the 570S GT4 racer as an inspiration of what the more hardcore 600LT would be, the car could be more powerful than the GT4 race car as it does not have to abide to its GT4-class restrictions.

"It’s amazing how useable the 600LT is on the road. Sure, it’s a little louder but it still rides well, which got us thinking we should make an even faster version," said Burnham. "We want it to happen and I’m lobbying hard for it."

To put things into perspective of how fast McLaren has grown, the original 2011 MP4-12C uses the pretty much the same 3.8-litre turbocharged engine as the 600LT but the newer car has now more torque and less weight.
